I have found the general answer for changing the radWindow items like the close tool tip text.

Telerik.Web.UI.RadWindowUtils.Localization =        
{       
    "Close" : "Close",       
    "Minimize" : "Minimize",       
    "Maximize" : "Maximize",       
    "Reload" : "Reload",       
    "PinOn" : "Pin on",       
    "PinOff" : "Pin off",       
    "Restore" : "Restore",       
    "OK" : "Custom text for OK",       
    "Cancel" : "Custom text for Cancel",       
    "Yes" : "Custom Text for Yes",       
    "No" : "Custom text for No"         
};     
 


This solution does not work for me, as the page can be hit by users of several locals.  So if I change "Close" to Spanish my English and German users will now see Spanish.  I can't win.

Has the window been truly localized yet, allowing me to move this text into a resource file? 

If not, can I please get a PITS ticket created for that request.

Thanks
Tim

Hello Tim,

This feature is in our ToDo list for Q2 which will appear in the beginning of July. Due to the small number of localization strings, we will be using properties for that purpose.
By the way, with the current version, based on your localization logic, you could output different JavaScript depending on the language currently set, have you tried that? If so, what was the problem with this approach?

Thanks,

No I haven't found/tried the localized java approach.  Do you have an example handy?

Hello Tim,

I attached a small sample that shows what I was talking about - I hope this helps.

I just got another problem by using this way to localize the radwindow.

I use radAlert and radConfirm a lot. In the radConfirm dialogue, I want to display "Yes", "Cancel" for the button text, but not radAlert. The tricky is after I use this js script, it also change the radAlert button text to "Yes". Can someone give a solution for this?


Thanks

Hi Vincent,

In such case I would suggest to hardcode the strings (e.g. change  ##LOC[OK]## to Yes ) directly in the templates. More information on how to use RadWindowManager's templates is available here:
