Hello,

I have made all my classes with Multi-Lingual true.
Classes which i generate dynamically with the "new" keyword are not changing language.
How do i achieve this?

Example:
this.Owner.SwitchToDialog( new Application::MyDialog, null, null, null, null, null, null, null, null, null, false );

Thank you in advance!

Hello Bjs,

I have tried to reproduce your application case but without success. In my application the dialogs were updated correctly when the language is changed. Can you reduce your application to a simple example demonstrating the issue?

Hello,

I have build an "Database" array on startup with contains ~40 elements of my 'UI parameters' class. These UI parameters contain a UID, Name, Value and more. Then later on i use these to fill in a 'UI element' class (a value/toggle/text box for example).

Now i am trying the %+GetText() method to fix this but i am passing the strings as arguments back and forth from everywhere. I am uncertain this method will work when the string comes from this "Database".

https://doc.embedded-wizard.de/managing-localization?v=9.00

Edit:
I tried and it does not work, when i run the method "%+GetText()" to return Strings::MyString, it does change language.
When i call "%+GetText()" to return "Application::Global_UI.MyDatabaseArray[0].Name (contains Strings::MyString), language is not changing.

Is there a way to load the strings into the "Database" array without lose of multi-language? Similar to the "%+" to return, but instead to store.

Edit2:
Tried changing the database class .Name from from using a variable string to instead a property string, did not help also.

Edit3:
Now i have a working solution but i dont like it. I need now to create ~40 separate properties and set the 'default' to the different required strings. I lose my link with the UID because i tested it and i cannot build my 'Database' array with using of these properties also, only works when i directly call the property from the %+GetText() method. So i have to make an extra switch case statement to select the correct property, which the same as not going through all that effort mentioned above with creating properties but using a switch statement to find the correct String:: ..

Hello Bjs,

without seeing your implementation it is difficult for us to deduce what is wrong or how your application works. Nevertheless I tried to reproduce your application case and it worked. Following are the steps I have implemented:

Step 1: New class DatabaseClass added.

Step 2: In the class DatabaseClass I have added a method GetText().

Step 3: The method GetText() returns a string matching the actual selected language.

Step 4: in my GUI component I have added a Text view.

Step 5: The Text view is configured with its String property to obtain the string from Database autoobject as shown below:

Step 6: The GUI component containing the Text view (and evaluating the multi-lingual expression) have been configured with its attribute MultiLingual = true.

With this implementation, the Text view updates its text automatically when the language is changed. I hope it helps you further. If not, you can simplify your application to a simple example and upload it here for test purpose.

Hello,

Is it possible to have in your example the "Database.GetText()" provide a function argument such as "Database.GetText(this.UID)", or have the "Database.GetText()" call another function which will return the string i require? i can only place the "%+" in the Prototyper window, but i need to place it in functions.

I have UI element classes such as the value/toggle/text which are initialized after the "new", maybe i need to change the "init" to accept parameters if that is possible? Because now i init all strings/values/UIDs with -1 or "" which i need to have with the "%+GetText()", but the element does know how what it is at that moment.

Changing the Init is not possible..

https://doc.embedded-wizard.de/init-method-member?v=9.30

Edit:
I have a working solution now by creating a method to call the get Text later on after i have done the initializations and giving the UID's Values, Strings, i think this is for me the only way of how i have build the program.

Hello bjs,

Yes, this is possible. You should only ensure that UID (variable?) is already initialized with the right value before the expression Database.GetText( UID ) is evaluated. If a GUI component contains several variables/properties/objects, these members are initialized according to their Z-order. See also: Reorder members. The variable UID should have a lower order than the other members evaluating UID in their initialization expression. 

... maybe i need to change the "init" to accept parameters if that is possible?

If your intention is to add parameters to the Init-method, then this is not supported. You can however implement your own method (e.g. Setup( par1, par2, ..))  with all the desired parameters and invoke it immediately after new.
