Delete a content block with the Fluent API

The following example deletes a content block with a given ID:

First, you initialize the plural content block facade using App.WorkWith().ContentItems(). Then, you filter based on the Id to assure that the content block exists. To get the master version of the content block, you use the singular content block facade.

NOTE: If there is no content block with the specified ID, ContentItem(contentItemId) throws an exception of type ItemNotFoundException.

To delete the content block, you use the Delete method of the content block facade. Finally, you save the changes.

NOTE: The code example above works with the ID of the master version of the content block. Deleting the master version also deletes the other versions of the item. For more information about deleting items using the ID of the live version, see For developers: Delete content.
