ASP.NET MVC - Changing Culture

Hello

I'm trying to change the displayed language in my MVC application by routing the ActionLink on my Masterpage to an action on a controller. However, I would like that the page I'm on refreshed itself with the changed culture.

Now I'm hardcoding to have a RedirectToAction back to the Index action of another controller.

Is is possible to return to the same page?

Here is my code:

    public class CultureController : Controller
    {
        public ActionResult ChangeLanguage(string culture)
        {
            HttpCookie cookie = new HttpCookie("StockManagementCookie");
            cookie.Values["culture"] = culture;
            cookie.Expires = DateTime.Now.AddYears(1);
            System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Response.Cookies.Add(cookie);
            return RedirectToAction("Index", "Reservation");
        }
    }

I'm sorry but both links do not refer to the problem I have talked about.

The problem is: instead of using hard coded RedirectToAction variables like Index + Reservation, I want to use the controller and action that have invoked the language change, so that I can redirect to it, as if the page has been refreshed, but now with another display language.

There is a response.redirect(HTTPREFERRER) in aspclassic, I would assume they did not remove that

Thanks for the comment rq20, it already gave me a good hint.

The actual way to do it in MVC is as follows:

                public ActionResult ChangeLanguage(string culture)
        {
            HttpCookie cookie = new HttpCookie("StockManagementCookie");
            cookie.Values["culture"] = culture;
            cookie.Expires = DateTime.Now.AddYears(1);
            System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Response.Cookies.Add(cookie);
            string returnUrl = Request.UrlReferrer.ToString();            return Redirect(returnUrl);
        }


Thx !!!
