    GetLocalizedString Event (C1FlexGridBase)
    In This Topic
    Occurs when the filter localizes a string in the user interface.
    Public Event GetLocalizedString As GetLocalizedStringEventHandler
    public event GetLocalizedStringEventHandler GetLocalizedString
    Event Data

    The event handler receives an argument of type GetLocalizedStringEventArgs containing data related to this event. The following GetLocalizedStringEventArgs properties provide information specific to this event.

    Component being localized.  
    Gets the name of the component being localized.  
    Parent of the component being localized.  
    Gets or sets the value of the localized string.  

    The C1FlexGrid control automatically localizes the column filter based on the system's current culture and in the setting of the Language property.

    This event allows you to customize the filter strings or to implement localization to languages that are not supported by the grid's built-in localization mechanism.

    To modify the content of any of the filter's UI elements, handle this event and set the e.Value parameter to the text you would like to display.

    The example below shows how you can change the strings in the filter UI based on the string value and on the name of the controls being localized:
    void Initialize()
      // enable filtering
      _flex.AllowFiltering = true;
      // set GetLocalizedString handler
      _flex.GetLocalizedString += _flex_GetLocalizedString;
    void _flex_GetLocalizedString(object sender, C1.Win.C1FlexGrid.GetLocalizedStringEventArgs e)
      // customize item based on text value
      if (e.Value == "(Select All)")
        e.Value = "(Select Everything)";
      // customize item based on component name
      switch (e.ComponentName)
        case "_btnApplyFilter":
          e.Value = "OK";
        case "_btnClearFilter":
          e.Value = "Reset";
        case "_btnCancel":
          e.Value = "Close";
