Localizing Reminder Strings

To localize RadReminder to display control text and messages in a specific language:

  • Start by creating a descendant of the RadReminderLocalizationProvider class.

  • Override the GetLocalizedString(string id) method and provide a translation for the label and user messages. If a translation is not provided, the default value will be returned. This behavior is guaranteed by the call to the base GetLocalizedString method in the default clause of the switch statement in the example.

Below is a sample implementation of an English localization provider:

Sample English Localization Provider

public class EnglishReminderLocalizationProvider : RadReminderLocalizationProvider
{
    public override string GetLocalizedString(string id) 
    {
        switch (id)
        {
            case RadReminderStringId.AlarmFormButtonDismiss:
                return "Dismiss";
            case RadReminderStringId.AlarmFormButtonDismissAll:
                return "Dismiss All";
            case RadReminderStringId.AlarmFormButtonOpenItem:
                return "Open Item";
            case RadReminderStringId.AlarmFormButtonSnooze:
                return "Snooze";
            case RadReminderStringId.AlarmFormColumnDueIn:
                return "Due in";
            case RadReminderStringId.AlarmFormColumnSubject:
                return "Subject";
            case RadReminderStringId.AlarmFormLabelSnooze:
                return "Click Snooze to be reminded again in:";

To apply the custom localization provider, instantiate and assign it to the current localization provider:

Change the Current Provider

RadReminderLocalizationProvider.CurrentProvider = new EnglishReminderLocalizationProvider();

RadReminderLocalizationProvider.CurrentProvider = New EnglishReminderLocalizationProvider()

The code provided above illustrates the approach to be used to localize the RadReminder and is not intended as a full translation.
