Hi,
I have a radform with a gridview control.  The "Localizable" property in the RadForm is true and there are only two columns in the gridview. In desgin time, I input the column header text for each column in grid. Then, I change the "Language" in the form and input the Column Header Text in other language.
However, after I switch back language to original, all the column header text I input before were missing. 
Then, I checked the resx files for those two language and found that the "GridViewTextBoxColumn" in those files are different.

The resx file in original language (RadForm1.resx):

  <data name="GridViewTextBoxColumn2.HeaderText" xml:space="preserve">

  </data>
</root>

Then, I switch the form language back to original language and find that in "RadForm1.zh-Hant.resx" file, the data name for grid column had changed to "GridViewTextBoxColumn3" instead of "GridViewTextBoxColumn1".  So, the column header text can't display in original language.

I would like to know how can I fix it?

Hello Emily,

Thank you for writing.

Actually, the described behavior is a known issue. We are working on the matter and a fix will be provided in one of the next releases. For the time being you can set up the header text through code at run time.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Kind regards,
