    HI there,

    My problem is this, i have a radmenu being created by the database, but i need to put globalisations for translation of the menu.

    what can i use to do it knowing i already have resource files for the rest of the page.

    BestRegards

    Hello Carlos,

    In general the RadMenu control does not use localizations since there are no static elements of the control (such as labels for example as it would be the case with the RadAsyncupload) that would remain static once the datasource for the control changes. However, you can easily change the datasource (where you can use a different languages for the menu) so that the control gets the needed one.

    The Datasource that i have is a Database, it has to be for a dynamic construct, so theres no possibility to put globalisation working with radmenu, that is created by a DB?

    Hi Carlos,

    Let me explain in some more details. In general we provide localization support for controls that have static labels - such controls are RadScheduler, RadAsyncUpload or RadListBox for example (you can click on the respective control and get to its respective demo, please note that when changing between the different languages only these static "labels" change). On the other side, controls like the RadMenu and the RadTabstrip for instance do not have such static labels that can change when setting a different language. Therefore my best suggestion would be to create different data sources and when switching between the languages you will also need to change the data source accordingly.
