Localization in EJ2 JavaScript Mention control

2 May 20233 minutes to read

The Localization library allows you to localize static text content of the noRecordsTemplate  properties according to the culture currently assigned to the Mention.

Locale key en-US (default)
noRecordsTemplate No records found

Loading translations

To load the translation object to your application, use the load function of the L10n class.

In the following sample, French culture is set to the mention control and no data is loaded. Hence, the noRecordsTemplate property displays its text in French culture initially.

//bind the data manager instance to dataSource property
var customerData = new ej.data.DataManager({
    url: 'https://services.odata.org/V4/Northwind/Northwind.svc/Customers',
    adaptor: new ej.data.ODataV4Adaptor(),
    crossDomain: true

var mentionObj =  new ej.dropdowns.Mention({
    dataSource: customerData,
    // set locale culture to Mention
    locale: 'fr-BE',
    // map appropriate column
    fields: { text: 'ContactName', value: 'CustomerID' },
    // take 0 item to showcase noRecordsTemplate property.
    query: new ej.data.Query().select(['ContactName', 'CustomerID']).take(0)

    'fr-BE': {
       'mention': {
            'noRecordsTemplate': "Aucun enregistrement trouvé"
