    Hello,

    i am working on a localization provider for the RadScheduler. 

    I get the following problems:

    1. I set the RadSchedulerStringId.NextAppointment and the RadSchedulerStringId.PreviousAppointment to a translated text but they are not used. These two stringids are the only ones which are not used, so i think that these are hardcoded in the RadScheduler.

    2. In the Resource ComboBox is a standard empty text ( "None" ) but there is no RadSchedulerStringId to translate it. Is it possible to change this text?

    3. In the Appointment Dialog there is not enough space for the translated Text of the AllDayEvent text. Is it possible to extend it ?

    4. In the recurring Appointment Dialog there is not enough space for the translated text for many RadSchedulerStringIds. Is it possible to extend it ?

    Kind Regards,

    Ramius

    Hello,

    for case 1 i have found out, that it is sometimes working and the translated texts are shown but often they are not shown. I don't understand when it is working and when not.

    Case 2 could be solved with a custom EditAppointmentDialog.

    Case 3 is solved with a custom EditAppointmentDialog.

    Case 4 is not solved yet. Is it possible to create a custom EditRecurringAppointmentDialog ?

    I have an other minor problem:

    5. In Germany the week starts with a monday and so i would like to change the order of the Checkboxes in the RecurringApointmentDialog when the weekly radio button is selected.

    Kind Regards,

    Ramius

    Hi Ramius,

    I confirm this issue. As a workaround you can change the scheduler ActiveView after you apply the custom localization provider.

    In order to change some of the controls settings which are in the dialogs you can inherit from the EditAppointmentDialog and EditRecurrenceDialog to create custom dialogs. These dialogs expose all their controls because they are having a protected modifier. This means that in the custom dialogs you can change every single property such as Size, Location, Text, etc.

    If you need additional information, please feel free to contact us.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Boyko,

    in the EditAppointmentDialog and the EditRecurrenceDialog many controls are private and not protected, so i can't change their size or their location. Can you please change this ?

    Kind Regards,

    Ramius

    Hi Ramius,

    You can also use the form Controls collection and the "Name" property of the controls to identify them. We will consider the requested changes in the future versions of the Scheduler control.

    Please contact us again if you need more information.

    Hi Boyko,

    Hi Ramius,

    I am happy that my suggestion worked out for you. However, we will consider some design changes for the next major release and we will do our best to provide a better API for customizing the edit dialogs in RadScheduler.

    Please feel free to contact me for further information regarding RadScheduler for Winforms.
