All,

Is there a way to localize the labels within an auto-generated edit form? I would prefer not to have to use a web control to do this if at all possible. I have managed to assign resource file values to the grid headers easily enough, but I do not want to use the same value for the grid headers and the edit form.

Thanks,
jax

Hello Jax,


Customizing the edit-form header achieved by the setting the 'EditFormHeaderTextFormat' as per the requirement.
<telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="City" HeaderText="City" SortExpression="City"
    UniqueName="City" EditFormHeaderTextFormat="Your City" >
</telerik:GridBoundColumn>

Declarative style editors

Hi Shinu,

Thanks for your reply. I think I was on the right track, but I was put off by the EditFormHeaderTextFormat name. Next question...How do I set this from code? I am using the following code:

foreach (Telerik.Web.UI.GridColumn gridColumn in rgCompany.MasterTableView.Columns)
{
    gridColumn.EditFormHeaderTextFormat = Localization.GetString("GridHeader" + gridColumn.UniqueName + ".Text", LocalResourceFile);
}

I have tried this in both the ItemDataBound and ItemDataCreated events, and while it does not throw exceptions, I am not seeing my updated code. Is there some other event where I need to put this?

Thanks,
jax

Hi Shinu,

I got it. I moved the code to the PreRender event and it appears as expected.

Thanks,
jax
