Here nodeId is the id of content or node.

String testValue;

testValue = docMfsFeedSettings.getProperty(“feedItemWidth”).Value.ToString()  // Get the property value.

  1. ok after setting the value we must publish it as bellox:
    // After modifying the document, prepare it for publishing
    docMfsFeedSettings.Publish(new umbraco.BusinessLogic.User(0));

    • Basically it’s not needed after all setting the value you have to publish your document or content node…for keeping serialize data in data base.
      In this post
      I haven’t used docMfsFeedSettings.Publish(new umbraco.BusinessLogic.User(0));

      But In case you want to store another information or perform some logic other then event related to umbraco publish in that case you have to publish , and In case you have added some button for custom data type and doing post back in that case it will necessary …

      According to umbraco documentation:

      If you don’t Publishing a document

      To push content changes into the website xml cache, documents need to be published after the changes have been made. This is a 2 step process as the layer handling the database transactions (umbraco.cms.businesslogic.web.document) is unaware of the layer handling the runtime and the website xml cache (umbraco.presentation.nodefactory)

      Therefore you first have to fetch the document you need, mark it ready for publishing, and then afterwards tell the runtime to update the cache for that specific item.

      using umbraco.cms.businesslogic.web;


      //Get the document by it's ID
      Document d = new Document(1234);
      //Mark it ready for publishing
      d.Publish(new umbraco.BusinessLogic.User(0));
      //Tell the runtime to update the document cache
