    How to get the String value of a Umbraco.DropDown

    Im trying to get the value that was selected in the back office, the filed is a Umbraco.DropDown which was datatype defined in the developer section

    private void ContentServiceSaved(IContentService sender, Umbraco.Core.Events.SaveEventArgs<IContent> e)
            {
    
                var cs = new ContentService();
                foreach (var myNode in e.SavedEntities.Where(x => x.HasProperty("myProperty")))
                {
       var x = myNode.GetValue("myOtherProperty");
    // x ends up being a number 55 I want the drop down string  value
    }

    This worked for me :-)

    String selectedTextVal = umbraco.library.GetPreValueAsString(int.Parse(myNode.GetValue("myOtherProperty").ToString()));

    For those trying to do this in Umbraco 7, I had the following solution. (Spread out into multiple lines for readability).

    var propertyValue = myNode.getPropertyValue("myOtherProperty").ToString();
    var propertyIntValue = int.Parse(propertyValue);
    var selectedTextValue = Umbraco.GetPreValueAsString(propertyIntValue);
    

    There might be a cleaner way to do it, but this gets me the desired string value for a dropdown or radio button list data type.

    you could do it like this is Umbraco 7

    var selectedTextValue = umbraco.library.GetPreValueAsString(myNode.getValue<int>("myOtherProperty"));
