I don't know if this is the correct approach... So...

Our site is multilingual, actualy 8 languages.

In some modules, I need to get the FullUrl of tabs, in order to redirect users there for example.

When I am in any page, in en-GB culture, and executing ti = tc.GetTabByName("Home", this.PortalSettings.PortalId), I am getting the correct tab. However, when I am executing this from any other culture, I am getting the en-GB tab. All tabs have the same name (Home), but different Titles (Home, Αρχική, Pagina Initial, etc).

If I am using different name, how am I supposed to GetTabByName ? I cannot have Case/If statements for every culture...!

not able to test this but AFAIR TabController.Instance.GetTabByCulture(tab.TabID, tab.PortalID, locale) will return the localized version of the tab based on the tabid

Are you using DNN built in language specific pages or a 3rd party solution for localization?

AFAIR is a 3rd party module? So I have to find the TabID by name, and then this method will give me the new tab according to culture?

 

@Sebastian Leupold, yes I am using built-in localisation.

Ok, I solved it. I used the following method, please tell me if it is the correct approach.

 

        public static DotNetNuke.Entities.Tabs.TabInfo GetTabByLanguage(string tabname, DotNetNuke.Entities.Portals.PortalSettings pset)

        {

            DotNetNuke.Entities.Tabs.TabController tc = new DotNetNuke.Entities.Tabs.TabController();

            return GetTabByLanguage(tc.GetTabByName(tabname, pset.PortalId).TabID, pset);

        }

 

        public static DotNetNuke.Entities.Tabs.TabInfo GetTabByLanguage(int tabid, DotNetNuke.Entities.Portals.PortalSettings pset)

        {

            DotNetNuke.Entities.Tabs.TabController tc = new DotNetNuke.Entities.Tabs.TabController();

            DotNetNuke.Services.Localization.Locale locale = DotNetNuke.Services.Localization.LocaleController.Instance.GetLocale(pset.CultureCode);

            return tc.GetTabByCulture(tabid, pset.PortalId, locale);

        }
