    V6: LocalizationService.GetDictionaryItemByKey

    I'm trying to insert dictionary items from code using the new API's.

    What I've got so far is:


    which returns: "Sequence contains no elements". Which doens't make sense as I do have a "Phone" key in my Dictionary items.

    Hope somebody can shed some light / write some documentation.

    I have tried 

    IDictionaryItem item = ApplicationContext.Current.Services.LocalizationService.GetRootDictionaryItems().First(x => x.ItemKey.Equals(key));

    as an alternative, but I get the same sequence contains no elements error.

    And I tried

     bool exists = ApplicationContext.Current.Services.LocalizationService.DictionaryItemExists("Jaar");

    and I also get the sequence contains no elements error.

    And I tried

    IDictionaryItem item = ApplicationContext.Current.Services.LocalizationService.GetDictionaryItemById(21);

    and I again get the sequence contains no elements error.

    Am I missing something? I have a dictionary with actual words and translations.

    This does work:

    UmbracoHelper helper = new UmbracoHelper(umbracoContext);
    var dictionaryValue = helper.GetDictionaryValue("Jaar");

    ..but I want to programatically get translations for different languages and this solution won't let me do that. It always returns the translation of the "current" language (probably based on the umbracoContext).

    I ended up writing this to get Dictionart Items based on key and ISO code

    public static String ItemForKeyAndLanguage(String key, String languageCode)
               ILanguage language = ApplicationContext.Current.Services.LocalizationService.GetAllLanguages().First(x => x.IsoCode.Equals(languageCode));
               Dictionary.DictionaryItem dictionaryItem = new Dictionary.DictionaryItem(key);
               return dictionaryItem.Value(language.Id);

    Umbraco 6.1.6
