In Tridion 2011 I have a componen in which in the metadata fields has a keyword with different values. How should I get the selected value in c#. I tried the next but I get the name of the key not the selected value.

ItemFields fields = new ItemFields(component.Metadata, component.MetadataSchema);
KeywordField key = (KeywordField)fields[fieldName];
return key.Name;

but I get the name of the keyword not the selected value. Keyword: Business Area Values: Corporate. Decorative paints. Performance coatings(selected one)

The KeywordField is the field itself, not the chosen Keyword. You need to get it's value... something like this:

ItemFields fields = new ItemFields(component.Metadata, component.MetadataSchema);
KeywordField keywordField = (KeywordField)fields[fieldName];
Keyword keyword = (Keyword)keywordField.Value;
return keyword.Title;
