Output Asset Attributes to Screen

This example sets an asset which I have named objAddress using the assetset:setasset tag.

This Address asset is of type Address_Asset and has been assigned the id equal to the variable cid.  I then use the assetset:getattributevalues tag to get the attributes of the asset which I have named earlier as objAddress.  The attribute that I am looking for is called AddressLine1 and I am assigning to the list called AddressLine1list of type My_Asset.  Finally to print the attribute of the asset I use the FatWire ics:listget tag which gets the first result of the list. I tell it to print the value of the attribute.

<assetset:setasset name="objAddress" type="Address_Asset" id="<%=ics.GetVar("cid")%>" />
<assetset:getattributevalues name="objAddress" 
 typename="My_Asset" />
<ics:listget listname="AddressLine1list" fieldname="value" />

I have spent most of my time working on these little bits of logic or snippets. These come from problems or issues I have encountered over the year. These are insights I have researched or provided as code review feedback.

During my time working in consulting I was tasked many times with delivering FatWire sites. I took notes due to the lack of useful documentation at the time. These are the results of those notes made and shared.


I believe the majority of time on a project is spent with the UI. Web is no exception. I have compiled a set of articles covering HTML, CSS and JS with the intention of taking the sting out of this work.

I picked up some pointers over the years consulting for government and banking sectors before entering a PCI DSS development environment. This section covers aspects like coding, testing, code review and best practice.
