GetText from specific language

Post by alemio »

Hi,
GetText method returns string constant by TextID depending on ActiveLanguage property.
I need to get text form specific language instead of ActiveLanguage.
How can I do?
Thx

Hello,

Just use GetStringValue() method:

Code: Select all

siLang1.GetStringValue(siLang1.Strings, 'YOUR_ID', [LANGUAGE_NUMBER]);
Best regards,

Hi Support,

and how can we i.e. get the translation for a caption of a component?

i.e. i have a label named mylabel1 with a caption "Save" and this is translated to german as "Speichern".

Now i want to be able to translate the word "Save" in runtime. with silang1.getstringvalue or with silang1.gettext('Save') i get a empty result.

Is there something i'm missing?

Code: Select all

silang1.GetStringValue(siLang1.Captions, 'mylabel1', 1);
will return the value for the first language.

But this was not the question. The question is how can i get a text for the caption of mylabel1 in this case

Code: Select all

silang1.GetStringValue(siLang1.Captions, 'Save', 1);
is not working. I need a way to get a translation for a string which is already translated because it is used as a caption somewhere.

Any possibility to get such a functionality? We're on subscription and renewed it in the last days. Such functionality will be very good to be able to runtime translate some messages or dynamic created elements ...
