Localization

The built-in localization mechanism in Silverlight allows you to localize any string resource used by the RadGanttView control. Once translated, you might use your resources in both Silverlight projects without changing anything.

To learn more about the ways to localize the controls from the UI for Silverlight suite please read the common topic about Localization.

In RadGanttView you can localize the Start and End text in task tooltips:

The next image shows the tooltip localized in French:

ganttview localization 2

You can also localize the RadDateTimePicker which is present when choosing a date. More information on how to achieve this can be found in the DateTimePicker Localization article.

Supported Languages

RadGanttView can be translated in one of the following supported languages using the framework's localization mechanism:

  • English
  • German
  • Spanish
  • French
  • Italian
  • Dutch
  • Turkish

More information on how to achieve this can be found the Localization Using Built-In Resources article.

Resource Keys

The resources of the control can be localized by using an unique identifier called resource key that is assigned to each localizable string. Below you may find a list of the Resources available and their default values:
