Locator Tool - Query API limit query to folder.

I want to get all child pages with a particular content type in a folder.

I would assume there would be something like?

#foreach($x in $currentPage.parentFolder.children)
    #if($x.contentType == "site:/mysite/Story")
        <a href="$x.path">
            <article class="list--item">

I know you use filter by content type using the Query API:

#set($query = $_.query()) 
#set($query = $query.byContentType("site:/mysite/Story").publishableOnly(true).indexableOnly(true))
#set($pages = $query.execute())
#foreach($x in $pages)
    <a href="$x.path">
        <article class="list--item">
Is there a way to restrict $_.query() to a folder or location?
i.e.: $query.searchLocation("site:/mysite/folder")

Or a way to inspect assets to determine content type?
i.e: $x.contentType = "site:/mysite/Story"

    Currently, there is no way to filter the results of the Query Tool by folder. We do have a related suggestion for this on our Idea Exchange. I highly recommend voting this up if you would like the feature to be considered for a future release of Cascade.

    Also, the Page results from the Locator and Query tools will not provide you with the Content Type, only the Data Definition path..

    I think you are on the right track though, where your best bet would be to use the Query tool to obtain all pages for a specific Content Type and while you are looping over the results, check the page's parent folder path to see if it is in the folder you want.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
