    UmbracoApiController not using correct culture (item.Name always using default language)

    I am trying to make a basic page search function, where I have made a webapi controller (UmbracoApiController) to make an AJAX call for, that returns a list of pages which name matches the search value.

    Problem is that the webapi doesn't seem to know what culture is being used. So i pass in the culture as a string along with the root node id, so I can easily start searching through descendants whos name matches the input value.

    public List<SearchResult> Search(string value = "", int? rootId = null, string culture = "en-US")
    {
        // When debugging I can see this sets the culture to en-US as expected
        Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = new CultureInfo(culture);
        Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new CultureInfo(culture);
    
        List<SearchResult> results = new List<SearchResult>();
    
        var root = (rootId != null ? Umbraco.Content(rootId) : Umbraco.ContentAtRoot().First().Children.First());          
    
        // root.Descendants correctly loops through the published items for the specified culture, which is "en-US"
        foreach (var item in root.Descendants(culture).Where(x => x.Name.ToLower().Contains(value.ToLower()) && x.IsVisible() && !string.IsNullOrEmpty(x.GetTemplateAlias())).Take(7))
        {
            SearchResult model = new SearchResult();
            model.PageName = item.Name; // Name is always using the default culture "da-DK", but I want something like item.Name(culture)
    
            model.Url = item.Url(culture); // I can easily get URL for the culture
            model.Parent = "";
    
            if (item.Level > 2)
            {
                model.Parent = item.Parent.Name; // Again, this name is also using the default culture "da-DK" but the culture is set to "en-US"
            }
    
            results.Add(model);
        }
    
        return results;
    }
    

    That it doesn't automatically use the right culture is fine, I just need to know if there is a way I can get the culture-specific item.Name just like I can say "item.Url(culture)" and "item.Value("propertyAlias", culture)".

    Which version of Umbraco 8 are you using? This changed a lot between 8.0 and 8.1

    You can say item.Name("en-US") to specify a culture , you need to include using Umbraco.Core as it's an extension method which allow passing in a culture string.
