Detecting if a page/server is int the 'Edit mode'



 Hello, everyone!

 I need some advice regarding the 'Edit' mode of the EPiServer CMS (v.5). Is there any possibility to exactly detect from the code behind that currently a page is viewed in the 'Edit' mode?

Hi Andrey.

I think this still works:

public static bool IsEditOrPreviewMode




HttpRequest request = HttpContext.Current.Request;

Uri referrer = request.UrlReferrer;

return referrer != null && referrer.Host == request.Url.Host && referrer.Segments[referrer.Segments.Length - 1].Equals( "EditPanel.aspx", StringComparison.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase );
