Hi,

many Telerik controls can be localized using the given .resx files in App_GlobalResources. Is this also possible for the calendar controls (RadDateTimePicker, RadDatePicker, ...)? We are currently using Q3 2011.

Thanks!

Hi Jan-Patrick,

Thank you for contacting us.

I am glad you have found out that RadControls provide localization resource files for the controls located in the mentioned install folder. However I am afraid you will need to modify manually any other control in order to apply on it a custom language configuration.

RadCalendar supports Culture based localization. For example you could declare its culture as
"de-DE" and it will change its days, tooltips and months to German. You can apply this setting either:

declaratively:
<telerik:RadDatePicker ID="RadDatePicker1" Runat="server"
Culture="de-DE" ></telerik:RadDatePicker>

Copy Code

programmatically:

Copy Code
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
RadDatePicker1.Calendar.CultureInfo = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("de-DE");
}

by changing the culture:

System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("de-DE");

I hope this will be helpful. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Hello,

I've already seen that most of the control is localized when using the correct culture. But some texts are still english ("Today", "Cancel" in the calendar's month/year picker). When will/How can this be localized?

Hi Jan-Patrick,

You will have to modify them manually as shown in the example below:
C#:
RadDatePicker1.Calendar.FastNavigationSettings.TodayButtonCaption = "Heute"; RadDatePicker1.Calendar.FastNavigationNextText = "Nächste";
RadDatePicker1.Calendar.FastNavigationNextToolTip = "Ändern vorn";
 
RadMonthYearPicker1.MonthYearNavigationSettings.TodayButtonCaption = "Heute";
RadMonthYearPicker1.MonthYearNavigationSettings.NavigationNextText = "Nächste";
RadMonthYearPicker1.MonthYearNavigationSettings.NavigationNextToolTip = "Ändern vorn";


Kind regards,
Eyup

ok, but what about when we use a GridDateTimeColumn within a RadGrid ?

Hello Oliver,

In this case you could try:
protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Item is GridFilteringItem)
    {
        GridFilteringItem filterItem = e.Item as GridFilteringItem;
        RadDatePicker combo = filterItem["OrderDate"].Controls[0] as RadDatePicker;
 
        combo.SharedCalendar.FastNavigationSettings.TodayButtonCaption = "Heute";
        combo.SharedCalendar.FastNavigationNextText = "Nächste";
        combo.SharedCalendar.FastNavigationNextToolTip = "Ändern vorn";
    }
}

I hope this will prove helpful. Please give it a try and let me know about the result.

Kind regards,

To make the Solution of Eyup generic you could do this:

static void rg_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
{
   if (e.Item is GridFilteringItem)
   {
    GridFilteringItem filterItem = e.Item as GridFilteringItem;
    GridColumn[] renderColumns = filterItem.OwnerTableView.RenderColumns;
    GridColumn[] array = renderColumns;
    for (int i = 0; i < array.Length; i++)
    {
      GridColumn gridColumn = array[i];
      if (filterItem[gridColumn.UniqueName].Controls.Count > 0)
      {
        if (filterItem[gridColumn.UniqueName].Controls[0].GetType() == typeof(RadDatePicker))
        {
          RadDatePicker combo = filterItem[gridColumn.UniqueName].Controls[0] as RadDatePicker;
          combo.SharedCalendar.FastNavigationSettings.TodayButtonCaption = "Heute";
          combo.SharedCalendar.FastNavigationNextText = "Nächste";
          combo.SharedCalendar.FastNavigationNextToolTip = "Ändern vorn";
        }
      }
    }               
  }
}

Hello Bench,

Generally, these properties can also be set on client-side:
function pageLoad(app, args) {
    var calendar = $find('<%= RadCalendar1.ClientID %>');
    var fastNavigation = calendar._getFastNavigation();
 
    fastNavigation.TodayButtonCaption = "Hoy";
    fastNavigation.OkButtonCaption = "Aceptar";
    fastNavigation.CancelButtonCaption = "Cancelar";
}

If you try to access the browser language on server-side, you can also check the following HttpRequest.UserLanguages property:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.httprequest.userlanguages(v=vs.110).aspx
