I am using a color picker button and is doing localization to the Japanese language. I am using the Japanese version of Windows XP to do my testing.

I found that the color names in the "Web" group in the color picker are still in English (e.g. Black, DimGray, etc.). I tried installing the Japanese language pack for .NET and still get the same result.

Can somebody point me to the right direction to have is show the Japanese names?

Thank you.

Hi Raymond,

All the captions in the Color Dialog gets loaded from the colordlg.data file that is included in our assembly (only English).

C:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\X.x.x.x\Base\Shared.Base\Src\ColorPicker\colordlg.data

If you need to use a different language then you have to create a colordlg.data file from a different OS and put it in a satellite assembly.

However I need to check with the development team whether the current implementation supports localization for color names though it supports for Palette,Standard and System tab Text.

Thanks for choosing Syncfusion products.

Best Regards,

Hey Anupama,

How do I create the data file?

Thank you.

Hi Raymond,

Sorry for the extended delay in getting back to you.

Creating the data file will not be helpful in this scenario.Our developer has reported that this is not supported with current architecture because,to display color names Color.Name property is used.

We could implement localisation, but in this case user will need to localize something like 160 color names.

Thanks for your patience.
