How to localize the navigation pane button text in WinForms GroupBar?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GroupBar |
.NET Framework: 4

Localize the navigation pane button text

In GroupBar control, NavigationPane button text can be localized to any Language. Below steps helps to provide the localization for NavigationPane button text.


Step 1: Need to initialize the LocalizationProvider class, inherited from the ILocalizationProvider interface.

Step 2: Need to add the GetLocalizedString function in the LocalizationProvider class. It is used to provide the localized content for the options in NavigationPane of GroupBar.

Here, NavigationPane button text is localized in Arabic Language. The following code demonstrates the same.



//Codes in Form1.cs
LocalizationProvider.Provider = new localizer();
//For Arabic Language
CultureInfo Arabic = new CultureInfo("ar");
LocalizationProvider.Provider = new Localizer(Arabic);
class Localizer : ILocalizationProvider
  CultureInfo CustomCulture;
  #region ILocalizationProvider Members
  public Localizer()
  public Localizer( CultureInfo choosenCulture )
    CustomCulture = choosenCulture;
  public string GetLocalizedString(System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture, string name,object obj)
    //Arabic language
    if (this.CustomCulture != null && this.CustomCulture.Name == "ar")
      switch (name)
        #region Menu Package
        case ToolsResourceIdentifiers.MoreButtonsItemsText:
             return "عرض المزيد من الأزرار";
        case ToolsResourceIdentifiers.FewerButtonsItemsText:
             return "إظهار أزرار أقل";
        case ResourceIdentifiers.GroupBarAddRemoveButton:
             return "إضافة أو إزالة الأزرار";
        return string.Empty;
    return string.Empty;

'Codes in Form1.vb
LocalizationProvider.Provider = New Localizer()
'For Arabic Language
Dim Arabic As New CultureInfo("ar")
LocalizationProvider.Provider = New Localizer(Arabic)

  Private CustomCulture As CultureInfo
  #Region "ILocalizationProvider Members"
  Public Sub New()

  Public Sub New(ByVal choosenCulture As CultureInfo)
    CustomCulture = choosenCulture
  End Sub
  Private Function ILocalizationProvider_GetLocalizedString(culture As CultureInfo, name As  String, ctrl As Object) As String Implements ILocalizationProvider.GetLocalizedString
    'Arabic language
    If Me.CustomCulture IsNot Nothing AndAlso Me.CustomCulture.Name = "ar" Then
      Select Case name
