Globalization & Localization

RangeNavigator supports Localization and Globalization to customize the labels based on a culture specific to a country. The culture defines specific information for the number formats, week and month names, date and time formats etc.

Localization

Localization is the process of customizing the user interface based on a culture specific to a particular country or region in order to display regional data. The culture is represented by a unique string, for example, ―en-US‖ for U.S. English and ―fr-FR‖ for French (common), this is achieved by creating a JavaScript file “rangeNavigatorSource.fr-FR.js” and setting the equivalent word as illustrated in the following code sample.

  • cshtml
  • ej.datavisualization.RangeNavigator.locale["fr-FR"] = 
    {
        intervals: 
    	{
            //string to display the intervals on RangeNavigator
    
            quarter: {longQuarters: "Trimestre", shortQuarters: "T"},
    
            week: { longWeeks: "Semaine", shortWeeks: "S" }
        }
    
    }

    Localization is the key feature that provides solutions globally with the help of localized control.

  • cshtml
  • <div>
        <ej-range-navigator id="range" load="loadingdata" locale="fr-FR">
            <e-chart-series>
                <e-series name="Product A" type="Line" enable-animation="false" fill="#69D2E7" opacity="0.5">
                </e-series>
            </e-chart-series>
            <e-selected-range-settings start="2010/5/1" end="2011/10/1"></e-selected-range-settings>
        </ej-range-navigator>
    </div>

    RTL

    Right-to-Left or RTL describes the ability of application to handle and responds you to communicate with a right-to-left language, like Arabic or Japanese. EnableRTL property is used to change the rendering format to “Right to Left”, by default it renders from “Left to Right” in RangeNavigator.

  • cshtml
  • <div>
        <ej-range-navigator id="range" load="loadingdata" enable-rtl="true">
            <e-chart-series>
                <e-series name="Product A" type="Line" enable-animation="false" fill="#69D2E7" opacity="0.5">
                </e-series>
