    I have bought the WP7 control suite and I'm very happy with it. Good work so far!

    Because I'm writing multi-language apps, localization is an important topic for me. I've read the documentation and found out what you include the text resources for German, Italian and Fracais out of the box. BUT the text strings aren't localized at runtime.
    I have looked at the source code and found imho the problem: The supportedCultures in the csproj-file is missing. I had this problem with the silverlight toolkit too - after adding this to the csproj-file the strings from the mbedded resx file are loaded and everything is fine :-)

    Can this be fixed in the next release - it's a quick thing to do and wouldn't require me to write a localization manager for some strings which are already localized.

    Hi Ralf,

    Thank you very much for choosing RadControls for Windows Phone and for your kind words.

    In fact you should add the supported cultures at an application level and then everything should work just fine. I have verified this with a sample project. Could you please verify it at your side? If you are continuing to experience a problem I would kindly ask you to prepare a simple app that demonstrates the issue and open a new support ticket with the app attached so that I can have a closer look.

    I am looking forward to your reply.

    Regards,

    Thanks for your reply. I have found the problem: I have set the supported languages to de;es;it but I need to use the specific ones: de-DE; es-ES and it-IT and than everything works as expected.
    Maybe this can be documented?

    Best regards,
    Ralf
