Fixedly define language for "Enter Parameter Values"-Dialog

Hi there,

In our C#.Net application we use Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 13.0.19 and we use the "Enter Parameter Values"-Dialog (ParameterPromptControl).

Our problem is that on some client-PCs this parameter-prompt-dialog displays english texts such as:

- dialog-title: "Enter Parameter Values"

- buttons "OK" and "Cancel"

- month-names in a date-chooser (e.g. February, March...)

...and on some client-PCs this parameter-prompt-dialog displays german texts such as

- dialog-title: "Werte eingeben"

- buttons "OK" and "Abbrechen"

- month-names in a date-chooser (e.g. Februar, März)

probably there are other texts as well.

We only want to show all of these texts in German no matter on which client-PC the application runs. Is it possible to define the language for this parameter-prompt-dialog fixedly so that the texts will be displayed always in German?

I'm looking forward to your response.

Andy

    Hi Andreas,

    A couple of things to do. And must be set before opening the report each time.

    Here's code to get the list of support languages into a drop down list box:

    private void lstCeLocale_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    //this is the routine to set the default language locale for the report. Must be done before the report is loaded.
    CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.CommonControls.CeLocale myceLocale = (CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.CommonControls.CeLocale)lstCeLocale.SelectedItem;

    try
    {
    rpt.ReportClientDocument.LocaleID = (CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.DataDefModel.CeLocale)myceLocale;
    }
    catch (Exception ex)
    {
    MessageBox.Show("ERROR: " + ex.Message);
    }
    }

    Then to set the Viewer to use the same you need this:

    // this gets the locale when set before the report was opened and sets the viewer to the same language
    if (chkSameAsCELocale.Checked)
    {
    int x = (int)rpt.ReportClientDocument.LocaleID;
    crystalReportViewer1.SetProductLocale(x);
    }

    Note: this only affects static text, values must be in German or depending on data source it can be converted by the client.

    Formula text is English only.

    I have not tested it using the ParameterPromptControl but if I get time I will.... It should though because there are language dll's for each also.

    Don
