We believe that Localizer gives you everything you need to add powerful ASP.NET internationalization support to Microsoft Visual Studio 2002 / 2019, bringing the same set of features that Windows Forms programmers enjoy to the ASP.NET world.

If you're not familiar with the Localization features of Windows Forms in .NET, here's what the QuickStart help says:


"In Visual Studio .NET, the Windows Forms Designer is the localization tool. When you start an application, you change the Localization property on the Form to true and simply create your application in a normal fashion. Once the application is complete, you change the Language property of the Form to the language you choose. This generates a new .resx file for that language. All property changes are written to this new .resx file. When your application is run, the CLR checks the current locale and checks if the application has resources for that specific locale."

Until now, a similar level of Visual Studio designer support for localizing ASP.NET Web Forms has not been available. Now with Localizer you can produce localized versions of your ASP.NET Web Forms and controls in the Visual Studio designer in exactly the same way you would for Windows Forms applications.

All you need to do is drop a Localizer component onto your WebForm (or UserControl), design the page in the invariant language and then set the Language property of Localizer to the language you choose. This generates a new .resx file for that language, and all property changes are written to this new file. When your web application is run Localizer checks the current locale and checks if the application has resources for that locale.

Features in Version

  • Fix: Added support for RadioButtonList 

Features in Version
  • Fix: enhance compatability with some 3rd party webcontrol designer implementations
  • Fix: property Localization is no longer marked [DesignOnly] as this was resulting in the setting being serialized to the .resx rather than the codebehind

Features in Version

  • Localizer provides full design time support for localizing all WebControls in the System.Web.UI.WebControls namespace. Properties localized include Text (Button, CheckBox, RadioButton etc), ImageUrl (Image), ListItem.Text (ListBox/DropDownList ), NavigateUrl (HyperLink), AdvertisementFile (AdRotator), ErrorMessage (Validators)
  • Localizer provides runtime support for populating all the localized controls on a WebForm from the appropriate satellite assembly, with fallback to the language invariant resource if no localized version is available
  • Localizer can be set to automatically localize the page at runtime either at OnLoad or OnPreRender. Alternatively it can be set to Manual and you can trigger the localization of the page with a call to the Localize method.
  • CulturePicker WebControl allows selection of localized language at runtime, and then automatically sets the Culture of the thread to the selection on postback.
