I'm using the FormTemplate example of the PopUp editform demo here, and I have to internationalize the text.

It's all ok, except for the declaration of the Update/Insert button which is:

<asp:Button ID="EditFormUpdateButton" runat="server" 
    Text='<%# Iif (TypeOf Container is GridEditFormInsertItem, "Insert", "Update") %>' 
    CommandName='<%# Iif (TypeOf Container is GridEditFormInsertItem, "PerformInsert", "Update") %>'   
    meta:resourcekey="EditFormUpdateButtonResource1">  
</asp:Button> 

The problem is: how to localize the "Insert" and "Update" text? I was thinking of using an explicit expression like so:

<%$ Resources:LabelResource1.Text %> 

But I don't see how to combine that with the "IIf (TypeOf ..." part.

Can anyone help plz?

Thanks, Steve

Aha - I found out how to do it, using the GetLocalResourceObject method, like so:

 
Text='<%# Iif (TypeOf Container is GridEditFormInsertItem, GetLocalResourceObject("EditFormInsertButtonResource1.Text"), GetLocalResourceObject("EditFormUpdateButtonResource1.Text")) %>' 
 

Easy really! You could of course use GetGlobalResourceObject too.
