    can not retrieve dictionary item from surface controller

    Hi all,

    I have my website in 2 languages, for login I am using SurfaceConrtoller. To render error message according language I am using dictionary Item as umbraco.library.getdictionaryitem("ErrorMessage")

    but it is not returning me any value, just a blank string.

    I am using Umbraco 6.0

    Hmmm,

    Ok did you add another language under settings > languages ? 

    If not add another one, and for this to work you will need to set hostnames under each of your default homepage.

    Try using this code :

     @Umbraco.GetDictionaryValue("More")

    I had the same problem. More info here : http://our.umbraco.org/forum/templating/templates-and-document-types/39251-Surfacecontroller-and-ajax-request-to-action

    Hi, Dave I encountered same issue and

    Umbraco.GetDictionaryValue("messagekey")
    

    is also not working for me. GetDictionaryValue as well asumbraco.library.GetDictionaryItem returns only empty string for me in my ajax action method. Can you please specify, Is there any other change I need to make to this thing work? Note: System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = new CultureInfo(Request.Form["culture"]); will throw a null reference exception for me.

    If anyone was struggling with @Umbraco.GetDictionaryValue, I had to set CurrentUICulture culture to make it work.

    System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = new CultureInfo(Request.Form["culture"]);
