    Hello,
    I'm looking for a way to localize (in french) a RadDateTimePicker.
    I found the quick method : change control's properties in ASPX code.
    <telerik:RadDateTimePicker ID="RadDateTimePicker1" runat="server" Culture="French (France)" DatePopupButton-ToolTip="Ouvrir le calendrier" TimePopupButton-ToolTip="Ouvrir la liste des heures"></telerik:RadDateTimePicker> 
    And it's like the above code-behind method...

    But I think it's not very reusable :( I don't want to copy-paste the same strings on all my RadDateTimePicker controls!
    Is it possible to localize several controls accross a web application?
    Something in App_GlobalResources like the RadEditor maybe?
    Thanks.

    Hi OL,

    Basically, the control does not expose any additional means to allow fur a more flexible approach on localizing it. Another option in this case would be to inherit the control and preset the settings in the custom control which would inherit it. In this way, these properties would be automatically preset, when you reuse the custom component.

    Kind regards,
