Ticket: csm:error stays empty

I have a problem getting my custom system messages template to work. The {csm:error} tag stays empty, wether there’s an error or not. Output debugging shows the csm:error variable as empty, other csm: tags are process with the right action ID and the right content. Even though the content shows submission errors, the csm:error is empty, which makes it impossible to create a template using {if csm:error == TRUE}.

I tried all the variations possible; {if "{csm:error}” == TRUE}, {if csm:error == true} etc; nothing works. Could you help me out?

What version of EE are you using?

EE v2.5.2. If you respond via e-mail I could give you access? It looks like the $data var stays empty when calling the hook…
