Localization

You can apply different languages to the interface of dhtmlxForm, specifically to its SimpleVault control. You just need to translate the corresponding strings for Form labels and apply a ready locale to the component.

Default locale

The default (English) locale for Form SimpleVault control looks like this:

var en = {
simpleVaultText: "Drag & drop files or folders here or",
simpleVaultLabel: "browse files"
};

Custom locale

To use a different locale, your need to:

  • define necessary language settings: provide translation for all text labels, e.g. the German locale for the SimpleVault control looks like this:
var de = {
simpleVaultText: "Drag & Drop Dateien oder Ordner hier oder",
simpleVaultLabel: "Suchen Sie Dateien durch"
};
  • apply the language settings by calling the dhx.i18n.setLocale() method before Form initialization:
dhx.i18n.setLocale("form", de);
var form = new dhx.Form("form_container");

Related sample: Form. Localization

  • apply the language settings by calling the dhx.i18n.setLocale() method with the name of the control as a parameter for ColorPicker, DatePicker, Combo, TimePicker controls before Form initialization:
dhx.i18n.setLocale("form", de);
dhx.i18n.setLocale("colorpicker", de);
var form = new dhx.Form("form_container");
tip

The localization of the ColorPicker, DatePicker, Combo controls is the same as the localization of the widgets: ColorPicker, Calendar and Combo.
