Localization

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

  • All required classes for localization are defined in Telerik.WinControls.UI.Localization namespace.

  • Start by creating a descendant of the RadMarkupEditorLocalizationProvider 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 of 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:

Localizing RadGridView Strings

class MyRadMarkupEditorLocalizationProvider : RadMarkupEditorLocalizationProvider
{
    public override string GetLocalizedString(string id)
    {
        switch (id)
        {
            case RadMarkupEditorStringId.MarkupEditorTitle: return "RadMarkupEditor";
            case RadMarkupEditorStringId.MarkupEditorUndoString: return "Undo";

        End Select
        Return MyBase.GetLocalizedString(id)
    End Function
End Class

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

Assigning the Current Localization Provider

RadMarkupEditorLocalizationProvider.CurrentProvider = new MyRadMarkupEditorLocalizationProvider();

RadMarkupEditorLocalizationProvider.CurrentProvider = New MyRadMarkupEditorLocalizationProvider()

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