Localization in .NET MAUI Scheduler (SfScheduler)

19 Apr 20221 minute to read

Localization is the process of translating the application resources into different language for the specific cultures. The SfScheduler can be localized by adding resource file.

Setting CurrentUICulture to the application

Application culture can be changed by setting CurrentUICulture. in App.xaml.cs file.

using Syncfusion.Maui.Scheduler;
using System.Resources;

public partial class App : Application
{
	public App()
	{
		InitializeComponent();
		CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture = new CultureInfo("fr-FR");
      //// ResXPath => Full path of the resx file; For example : //SfScheduleResources.ResourceManager = new ResourceManager
      // ("MauiSchedulerDemo.Resources.SfScheduler", Application.Current.GetType().Assembly);

		SfScheduleResources.ResourceManager = new ResourceManager(ResXPath, Application.Current.GetType().Assembly);
	   MainPage = new MainPage();
	}
}

NOTE

The required resx files with Build Action as EmbeddedResource (File name should contain culture code) into the Resources folder.

Localize application level

To localize the Scheduler based on CurrentUICulture using resource files, follow the below steps.

  1. Create new folder, named as Resources in the application.

  2. Add the default resource file of Scheduler into Resources folder.
