You can apply different languages to the interface of dhtmlxCombo. You just need to translate the corresponding strings for Combobox labels and apply a ready locale to the component.

Default locale#

The default locale for Combobox looks like this:

var en = {    notFound: "Not Found",    selectAll: "Select All",    unselectAll: "Unselect All",    selectedItems: "selected items"};

Custom locale#

To use a different locale, your need to:

  • define necessary language settings - names of buttons and labels:
var de = {    notFound: "nicht gefunden",    selectAll: "alle auswählen",    unselectAll: "deaktivieren Sie Alle",    selectedItems: "ausgewählte Elemente"}
  • apply the language settings by calling the dhx.i18n.setLocale() method before Combobox initialization:
dhx.i18n.setLocale("combo", de);var combo = new dhx.Combobox("combo_container");
