Localization

To localize RadLayoutControl to display any text and messages in a specific language:

  • Create a custom LayoutControlLocalizationProvider class.

  • Override the GetLocalizedString(string id) method and provide a translation for the labels and user messages. If a translation is not provided, the default value will be returned.

Below is a sample implementation of an English localization provider:

Localizing RadLayoutControl Strings.


class MyEnglishLayoutControlLocalizationProvider : LayoutControlLocalizationProvider
{
    public override string GetLocalizedString(string id)
    {
        switch (id)
        {
            case LayoutControlStringId.CustomizeDialogHiddenItems:
                return "Hidden Items ({0})";
            case LayoutControlStringId.CustomizeDialogNewItems:
                return "New Items ({0})";

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

Assigning the Current Localization Provider


LayoutControlLocalizationProvider.CurrentProvider = new MyEnglishLayoutControlLocalizationProvider();

LayoutControlLocalizationProvider.CurrentProvider = New DataLayoutEnglishLayoutControlLocalizationProvider()
