    How to get culture in DocTypeGridEditor

    Hi all.

    Using UmbracoCms 8.8.0 and Our.Umbraco.DocTypeGridEditor 1.2.4

    How do i get the culture?

    Is it possible through the view on the IPublishedElement ?

    There are som scenarios where i need the culture when i use a Content Picker or Multi Url Picker.

    So i created a custom property controller that are used in the grid, inserted with DocTypeGridEditor in the package.manifest like this:

      "propertyEditors": [
          "alias": "Custom.PropertyEditor.Culture",
          "name": "Readonly Culture",
          "icon": "icon-readonly color-red",
          "editor": {
            "view": "~/App_Plugins/CustomPlugin/propertyEditors/readonlyCulture/readonlyCulture.html"
      "gridEditors": [
          "name": "List",
          "alias": "Custom.GridEditors.List",
          "view": "/App_Plugins/DocTypeGridEditor/Views/doctypegrideditor.html",
          "render": "/App_Plugins/DocTypeGridEditor/Render/DocTypeGridEditor.cshtml",
          "icon": "icon-bulleted-list color-green",
          "config": {
            "allowedDocTypes": [ "ListView" ],
            "nameTemplate": "",
            "enablePreview": true,
            "overlaySize": "small",
            "viewPath": "/Views/Partials/DocTypeGridEditor/",
            "previewViewPath": "/Views/Partials/DocTypeGridEditor/Previews/",
            "previewCssFilePath": "",
            "previewJsFilePath": ""
      "javascript": [

    My controller looks like this:

    (function () {
        "use strict";
        function readonlyCulture($scope, $routeParams) {
            $scope.model.value = $routeParams.cculture || $routeParams.mculture;   
        angular.module("umbraco").controller("Custom.ReadonlyCulture.EditorController", readonlyCulture);

    There is a $routeParams.mculture and a $routeParams.cculture.

    When i am editing the main language i am only getting mculture as expected.

    And when i change to another language i am getting the cculture as expected.

    But when i am using splitview, i get am getting the same result on both documents.


    URL: http://localhost:64556/umbraco/#/content/content/edit/1056?mculture=da-DK&cculture=en-US

    Split View: Left -> en-US. Right: da-DK enter image description here

    When i access the grid on both documents i am getting mculture=da-DK and cculture=en-US and can no longer tell the difference, because i do not know which one i am editing.

    I hope someone know what to do :)

    I was told that $scope.model.culture could do it, but not in DTGE.
