Is it possible to localize menu item's in XAML?

I tried doing:
<telerikNavigation:RadContextMenu.ContextMenu> 
                                        <telerikNavigation:RadContextMenu Opened="RadContextMenu_Opened" Name="cm_cashsale_item"  
                                                                          ItemClick="cm_cashsale_item_ItemClick"
                                            <telerikNavigation:RadContextMenu.Items> 
                                                <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Add" telerik:LocalizationManager.ResourceKey="cm_add"/> 
                                                <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Edit" telerik:LocalizationManager.ResourceKey="cm_edit"/> 
                                                <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Delete" telerik:LocalizationManager.ResourceKey="cm_delete"/> 
                                            </telerikNavigation:RadContextMenu.Items> 
                                        </telerikNavigation:RadContextMenu> 
                                    </telerikNavigation:RadContextMenu.ContextMenu> 
But to no avail.

What would be the best way to apply localization to the menu? (Preferably in XAML, as I don't particularly want to use LocalizationManager.GetString("cm_add") repeatedly in code)

Hi Alexander Sun,

It is possible to use our localization manager to localize your string. First you should create your localization manager that knows how to get the keys. You can read how to create one from here:
http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/common-localization.html

Then you use it as in the code you pasted but remove the Header="Add" setter.

Let us know if you need more information.

Hi Hristo,

I've managed to localize many other parts of my application fine, and I've checked that my resource keys are correct (they are).
Your suggestion (to remove the header) didn't work, all that happens is that the menu item becomes textless, with 0 height.


Do you have any other advice to get this working?

Hi Alexander,

Thank you for contacting us.

Attached you will find a sample project in which is illustrated how you can localize the MenuItems using CustomLocalizationManager.

If you have further questions let us know.

Hi Konstantina,

Thanks for the demo, I see what you mean now and I should be able to get it working.

I don't suppose that in future versions of the localization-manager/menu-control, there will be default support for this (with out the need for a custom localization manager)?

Hi Alexander,

Thank you for your question.

Unfortunately, this cannot be implemented since there are no fixed text in the Menu control which can be localized.

If you have any other questions regarding our controls please feel free to ask again.

All the best,
Konstantina
