    Trying to show speechBubble from MediaService.Saving event


    In the saving event for the media I'm cancelling the save if they're authorised or not, and this works fine. When I get to making a speech bubble, then I hit a problem.

    The line of code is:

     ((BasePage)HttpContext.Current.Handler).speechBubble(BasePage.speechBubbleIcon.error, "title""error");

    The error is:

    Unable to cast object of type 'System.Web.Http.WebHost.HttpControllerHandler' to type 'umbraco.BasePages.BasePage'.

    I've tried CurrentHandler as well. 

    Tried this too

    ClientTools clientTool = new ClientTools((Page)HttpContext.Current.CurrentHandler);
    clientTool.ShowSpeechBubble(SpeechBubbleIcon.Success, "Title""Message");

    and get the error Unable to cast object of type 'System.Web.Http.WebHost.HttpControllerHandler' to type 'System.Web.UI.Page'.

    It seems the Current HttpContext isn't a Page but something else - any suggestions on how to do this?

    Hi Dave,

    I have the same problem. Did you manage to find a solution?

    Hi Mitch,

    Not really. I did do a bit of a major hack and modified the rest message response for the particular message we were looking at. This was just a bit of luck because this message had some flags in it that I could hook in the back end, not a general solution though.

    Same problem here, but in ContentService.Saved event.

    Similiar issue here, I'm trying to build in a check to the "trashing" event for content and media and I'd really like to send a speech bubble back and cancel the reload / refresh of the content tree.
