What it does
In lots of cases, a request will provide a contentId or a locationId. Before using them, you will have to load API object within your controller.
Thanks to the param converter, you can directly have the API object at your disposal. All you have to do is:
- For Locations:
- In your controller's signature, type int the variable to Location.
- Make sure a parameter named "locationId" is provided by the request.
- For Content items:
- In your controller's signature, typeint the variable to Content
- Make sure a parameter named "contentId" is provided by the request
Example using Locations:
