    Using the dictionary as Text for Prevalue datatypes

    Is it possible to use the dictionary to set the text proeprty of a prevalue datatype, such as the Checkbox list or DropDown list?


    Since it's possible everywhere else in Umbraco, for property names and descriptions at least, the logical answer would be "yes", however, I can't get it to work.


    The solutions on the front-end is quite obvious, and simply translate the value when rendering the control, but I would also like it to look right in the Umbraco UI, since that's where the administrators work :)


    Any suggestions? Or is this something I should report on Codeplex as an issue?

    Hi Blagojce, one way to achieve this could be to use nuPickers with a custom DotNet DataSource

    Hi Stephan

    I had a need to do this in my package Switcher but solved it by taking another approach and used localizationService to lookup keys in the language XML files. However I would really like if it was possible to use dictionary items in the settings for a property editor. You can upvote this issue if you think that too:
