Globalization for dynamic properties


How do i use globalization with dynamic properties?

In the settings for a dynamic property i have the following options:

Type, Name, Presenation control, Display in Edit Mode, Field Name, Help Text, Tab

"Unique value per language" is missing.

I installed the Demo Site and globalization seems to work there. However if I create a new property i get the same problem.

How does your web site languges setup look (admin mode -> Config - Manage Web Site Languages)? Which version of CMS are you using?

Curious about this myself.. Have the same behavior on a freshly installed demo site running EPiServer CMS 6.

Im using CMS 6 with two languages. Swedish first, then English.

This seems to be a bug and I have filed a bug report for this:

Bug #45891: Is Language Specific flag is not visible when editing dynamic properties

A work around until a fix has been released is to add the following code to the /ui/admin/editpagetypedfield.aspx file:

<script runat="server">
protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e)
PageTypeOnly.Visible = true;

This will enable some more fields than just the language specific field but I tried it and it seems to work.

I tried the workaround that was suggested in the post above and it works great. But I saw that this solution is from June and I was wondering if there is a hotfix or some other fix for this bug so that I don't have to do this again of I update CMS 6?

The next release should have the fix included so you won't have to manually make the fix again :)

I cant find this file. Where is it located? (editpagetypedfield.aspx)

Olivia try the same approach Jon D Jones used in his blog post to replace one of the built in login images:

Redirect the request to editpagetypefield.aspx to an aspx in your project.
