Invoke localisation - howto

Mar 8, 2015 at 10:25 AM
Hello everybody,

as I'm about to move from DotSpatial 1.3 to 1.7, I wonder if anybody could give a short account how to invoke the German localization.

Thanks and regards

What do you mean by invoke localization?
If you have a computer with German Windows DotSpatial is shown in German as long as it is translated.

Hi,

I do it in the program.vb to select the language i want to run my DS application.
Shared Sub Main()
                     
            Dim app_culture As String = "de-DE"

            Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = New CultureInfo(app_culture)
            Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = New CultureInfo(app_culture)

            Application.EnableVisualStyles()
            Application.SetCompatibleTextRenderingDefault(False)
            Application.Run(New Form1())
        End Sub
