Hello,

In your localisation exemples, to change the culture of the grid, either your re-instanciate a new grid, or you rebind the grid.
I am looking for a way to change the culture of a grid with a NotifyPrpertyChanged mecanism for exemple ?
I don't want to destory my grid to re-create the same just for change localized string ...
Do you have any solution ?

Thanks for your help
JC

Hello Fenwick,

This could be achieved, but would take you more efforts and time . In general the elements you need localized can be retemplated (e.g. in Expression  Blend). This way any captions can be bound to the properties of your INotifyPropertyChanged object.

As said above - please have in mind this would involve a lot of heavy xaml.

Which elements of RadGridView do you need localized this way ?

Best wishes,

Thanks for your reply,

I was hoping you have another way ...
So I will do it for the group header bar, filter selector, and the raduplaod
But I am a little disappointed to do this...

Do you think this will change in any next release ?

All the best,
JC

Hi Fenwick,

 


The recommended approach for runtime language change is demonstrated in our Localization demo. 
We are constantly working on many improvements in our products, however I am not quite sure what would be the case with the dynamic localization. For the time being I would recommend you to use the approach demonstrated above.  




Kind regards,

Hello,

As a said before, create a new instance of the grid when localisation changed is NOT an option ...
It's not a good practice in Silverlight and you should not encourage to do this ...

I would make the templates as soon as I have some time

Hello,

are there any templates which could be provided? I need to change the language of the localization of a gridview at runtime without creating an instance of a gridview, too.
Is it now planned to support dynamic localization in a further Telerik version?

Kind regards,
Li
