I am working on localization of Telerik controls for one system. I have noticed the peculiarity in key naming and am trying to standardize the key naming. I am using this specific Telerik control version: 2009.3.1314.35.
1) RadPivotGrid - Pivot prefix
RadGridView - GridView prefix
RadRibbonView - RibbonView prefix
2) RadSchedulerView, RadDocking is not using any prefix. A few example keys: Of, Ok, Last, Every, Hide, Floating.
- Any documentation pertaining to the version we are using? Some documentation on Telerik might not be applicable to the particular version we are using as it is for the most current version.
- We have resource files split and categorized alphabetically - A to Z. All the keys in RadGridView starts with GridView and it would mean we has to put all the keys in "G" resource file and that "G" resource would get too unwieldy. I have an idea on how to handle this.
<data name="GridViewAlwaysVisibleNewRow" xml:space="preserve">
<value>Click here to add new item</value>
<data name="GridViewFilterSelectAll" xml:space="preserve">
The solution is to use a mapping table to map from Telerik string key to resource string key:
GridViewAlwaysVisibleNewRow --> ClickHereToAddNewItemText --> put in "C" resource file
GridViewFilterSelectAll --> SelectAllText --> put in "S" resource file
Any better suggestion?
