Hello,

I have created a report in Telerik report designer R3 2016, and to make my report multilingual i have created a parameter named pCulture to which user is passing culture name(eg. French(fr-FR), portuguese (pt-PT), English(en-EN)) which is working fine.

How my function is working :

TelerikReportResources.MultilanguageTelerikReport.GetCultureSpecificString(Parameters.pCulture.Value,"Key") //It is User defined function

The "key" will be translated from .net side in any language which has been entered by user in pCulture parameter.

Now the problem is :

I have Pie chart in my report which is showing weekdays, so here i have to compare pCulture parameter first, either it is french, Portuguese or English and again in particular language have to compare for the weekdays.as given below:

 

if the Parameters.pCulture.Value="fr-FR" and dayNameOfweek="Monday" then Monday="Lundi"

if the Parameters.pCulture.Value="fr-FR" and dayNameOfweek="Tuesday" then Monday="Mardi"

elseif the Parameters.pCulture.Value="fr-FR" and dayNameOfweek="Wednesday" then Monday="Mercredi"

elseif the Parameters.pCulture.Value="fr-FR" and dayNameOfweek="Thursday" then Monday="Jeudi"

elseif the Parameters.pCulture.Value="fr-FR" and dayNameOfweek="Friday" then Monday="Vendredi"

elseif the Parameters.pCulture.Value="fr-FR" and dayNameOfweek="Saturday" then Monday="samedi"

elseif the Parameters.pCulture.Value="fr-FR" and dayNameOfweek="Sunday" then Monday="dimanche"

 

same for Portuguese and English.so according to my logic i will have to create 21 elseif for this.

please guide me.

Hello Shiwani,

You can use a custom function, that can be loaded in the Standalone Report Designer from an external assembly(DLL) - Extending Report Designer and in the VS Report Designer the function will be recognized if it is in the same namespace.

You can also use the standard report Localization and globalization mechanisms, which require you to set the application's current thread's culture in order to get labels in the designer language - Localizing Reports. Note that the approach is not based on report parameter, but on the current thread's culture.


Let us know if you need further help.

Hello Shiwani,

The legend text is determined by the Graph.Series.LegendItem.Value which can be set via expression. You can use the custom function in that expression to localize the text.
