15 Oct 2021 / 1 minute to read

Localization

The Localization library allows you to localize default text content of the ColorPicker. The ColorPicker component has static text for control buttons (apply / cancel) and mode switcher that can be changed to other cultures (Arabic, Deutsch, French, etc.) by defining the locale value and translation object.

The following list of properties and its values are used in the ColorPicker.

Locale key words Text
Apply Apply
Cancel Cancel
ModeSwitcher Switch Mode

Loading translations

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

The below example demonstrates the ColorPicker in Deutsch culture.

razor
localization.cs
Copied to clipboard
<div class='wrap'>
    <h4>Choose Color</h4>
    @Html.EJS().ColorPicker("element").Locale("de-DE").Render()
</div>

<script>
    ej.base.L10n.load({
        'de-DE': {
            'colorpicker': {
                'Apply': 'Anwenden',
                'Cancel': 'Abbrechen',
                'ModeSwitcher': 'Modus wechseln'
            }
        }
    });
</script>

<style>
    .wrap {
        margin: 0 auto;
        width: 300px;
        text-align: center;
    }
</style>
Copied to clipboard
public ActionResult Localization()
    {
            return View();
    }

Right to Left - RTL

ColorPicker component has RTL support. It helps to render the ColorPicker from right-to-left direction. It improves the user experiences and accessibility for users who use right-to-left languages(Arabic, Farsi, Urdu, etc). This can be achieved by setting the enableRtl property to true.

The following example illustrates how to enable right-to-left support in ColorPicker component.

razor
rtl.cs
Copied to clipboard
<div class='wrap'>
    <h4>Choose Color</h4>
    @Html.EJS().ColorPicker("element").EnableRtl(true).Locale("ar-AE").Render()
</div>

<script>
    ej.base.L10n.load({
        'ar-AE': {
            'colorpicker': {
                'Apply': 'تطبيق',
                'Cancel': 'إلغاء',
                'ModeSwitcher': 'مفتاح كهربائي الوضع'
            }
        }
    });
</script>

<style>
    .wrap {
        margin: 0 auto;
        width: 300px;
        text-align: center;
    }
</style>
Copied to clipboard
public ActionResult Rtl()
    {
            return View();
    }
