Hi,

I am trying to localize a RadListBox.

Here is the aspx markup:
<telerik:RadListBox ID="rlbReadOnlyGroups" runat="server" meta:resourcekey="rlbReadOnlyGroups">
</telerik:RadListBox>

Here is my resource file:
rlbReadOnlyGroups.EmptyMessage              Aucun groupe assigné
rlbReadOnlyGroups.AllToLeft                 Tous à gauche
rlbReadOnlyGroups.Localization.AllToLeft    Tous à gauche
rlbReadOnlyGroups.Localization-AllToLeft    Tous à gauche


As you can see, I tried to set the property "AllToLeft" by different means, but in all cases it fails to show the French translation "Tous à gauche". The EmptyMessage property is shown correctly, but all the property linked to the buttons does not work.

Anyone had this issue?

Hello David,

You can find detailed information on how to use Localization with RadListBox in the following help article:
http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/listbox-localization.html 

You can also see it in action in the following demo:

Thank you Bozhidar, but this does not explain why RadListBox is not localizable through an App_LocalResource file. The two hyperlink lead to examples using App_GlobalResource only. In our case, both English and French RadListBoxes need different translations used in different scenario (multiple ASPX pages).

At least, there is a workaround here by assigning the labels programmatically, but why can we assign some properties of the RadListBox with the App_LocalResource file, such as the EmptyMessage, and not the localization properties ?

Hello David,

I also tested the solution with local resources, and it worked as expected. I've attached the sample page I used to test this issue. Please note that in order for the text of the buttons to appear, you have to set the RenderButtonText property to "true" in the ButtonSettings section of the ListBox.

Well, thank you very much for your time. My real problem, in the end, was a misunderstanding of the LocalResource file.

The RadListBox "rlbAssignedUsers.Localization.AllToLeft" property was correctly set since the beginning in the translated resource file "Groups.aspx.fr-CA.resx", but was missing from the file "Groups.aspx.resx". I can see that all the properties must be set in both files.

Again, thank you for you help.
