Globalization

Localization

Localization library allows users to localize the default text contents of the NumericTextBox to different cultures using the locale property. In NumericTextBox, spin buttons title for the tooltip will be localized based on the culture.

Locale key en-US (default)
incrementTitle Increment value
decrementTitle Decrement value

Loading translations

To load translation object in your application use load function of L10n class.

The below example demonstrates the NumericTextBox in German culture with the spin buttons tooltip.

tagHelper
translations.cs
@section ControlsSection{

  <ejs-numerictextbox id="numeric" value="10" locale="de"></ejs-numerictextbox>
}

    <script>
        ej.base.L10n.load({
            'en': {
                'numerictextbox': { incrementTitle: 'Wert erhöhen', decrementTitle: 'Dekrementwert' }
            }
        });
    </script>
public ActionResult Translations()
{
    return View();
}
}

Output be like the below.

NumericTextBox Sample

Internationalization

Internationalization library provides support for formatting and parsing the number by using the official Unicode CLDR JSON data and also provides the loadCldr method to load the culture specific CLDR JSON data. The NumericTextBox comes with built-in internationalization support to adapt based on culture. For more information about internationalization, refer to this link.

By default, all the Essential JS 2 component are specific to English culture (‘en-US’). If you want to go with the different culture other than English, follow the below steps.

  • Install the CLDR-Data package by using the below command (it installs the CLDR JSON data). For more information about CLDR-Data, refer to this link.
npm install cldr-data --save

Once the package installed, you can find the culture specific JSON data under the location \node_modules\cldr-data.

  • Now import the installed CLDR JSON data into the app.ts file. To import JSON data we need to install the JSON plugin loader. Here we have used the SystemJS JSON plugin loader.
npm install systemjs-plugin-json --save-dev
  • Once installed, configure the system.config.js configuration settings as like below to map the systemjs-plugin-json loader.
System.config({
    paths: {
        'syncfusion:': 'npm:@syncfusion/'
    },
    map: {
        app: 'app',

        //Syncfusion packages mapping
        "@syncfusion/ej2-base": "syncfusion:ej2-base/dist/ej2-base.umd.min.js",
        "@syncfusion/ej2-inputs": "syncfusion:ej2-inputs/dist/ej2-inputs.umd.min.js",
        "cldr-data": 'npm:cldr-data',
        "plugin-json": "npm:systemjs-plugin-json/json.js"
    },
    meta: {
        '*.json': { loader: 'plugin-json' }
    },
    packages: {
        'app': { main: 'app', defaultExtension: 'js' },
        'cldr-data': { main: 'index.js', defaultExtension: 'js' }
    }
});

System.import('app');
  • Now import the required culture from the installed location to app.ts file as like the below code snippets.
declare var require: any;

loadCldr(
        require('cldr-data/main/de/numbers.json'),
        require('cldr-data/main/de/currencies.json'),
        require('cldr-data/supplemental/numberingSystems.json'),
        require('cldr-data/supplemental/currencyData.json')
    );
  • Set the culture by using the locale property.

The below example demonstrates the NumericTextBox in German culture with the EUR currency format.

tagHelper
localization.cs
@section ControlsSection{

  <ejs-numerictextbox id="numeric" format="c2" value="100" locale="de" currency="EUR"></ejs-numerictextbox>
            
}

    <script>
        ej.base.L10n.load({
            'en': {
                'numerictextbox': { incrementTitle: 'Wert erhöhen', decrementTitle: 'Dekrementwert' }
            }
        });
    </script>
public ActionResult Localization()
{
    return View();
}

Output be like the below.

NumericTextBox Sample

Right to Left(RTL)

RTL provides an option to switch the text direction and layout of the NumericTextBox component from right to left. It improves the user experiences and accessibility for users who use right-to-left languages (Arabic, Farsi, Urdu, etc.). To enable RTL NumericTextBox, set the enableRtl to true.

tagHelper
rtl.cs
@section ControlsSection{

  <ejs-numerictextbox id="numeric" enableRtl="true" floatLabelType="Auto" placeholder="أدخل القيمة" value="100" locale="ar-AE"></ejs-numerictextbox>
            
}

    <script>
        ej.base.L10n.load({
            'ar-AE': {
      'numerictextbox': { incrementTitle: 'قيمة الزيادة', decrementTitle: 'قيمة تناقص'}
    }
        });
    </script>
public ActionResult Rtl()
{
    return View();
}
}
