Thank you.. That looks perfect.. so do you have to create a new field called MyDatePicker in code? or is the name just a dummy place holder?
The goal with the linq querying and playing around with the concept of a service i really just wanted to retrieve the top 5 items ordered by whatever value the datepicker has and display them in a widget..
I guess the main thing I'm finding tricky with orchard vs umbraco is that umbraco the documentation is there.. and getting this kind of stuff up and running is really fast.. whereas the learning curve in orchard is pretty big but I can see the power of it
It's very easy to add a date time field to something using the gui and you can find out how to do that BUT they don't then show you how to query that in code
Things around the ContentManager are a big unknown for new users is there any good documentation on getting started with querying content parts, field values in the code behind?
Am i missing something here.. are queries on fields generally not done.. or are people mainly using projections?
and re the compliment.. thank you for taking the time to help others! :)
