Localization in UWP Gantt (SfGantt)

10 May 20211 minute to read

Localization is the process of translating the application resources into different languages for specific cultures. You can localize the SfGantt by adding a resource file. The application culture can be changed by setting the PrimaryLanguageOverride in the MainPage() constructor.

The following code sample demonstrates how to configure the application culture to French language.

public MainPage()
    ApplicationLanguages.PrimaryLanguageOverride = "fr";

To localize the SfGantt based on PrimaryLanguageOverride using resource files, use the following steps:

  1. Right-click the project, click Add, click NewFolder, and then name the folder as Resources.
  2. Right-click the Resources folder, click Add, click NewFolder, and then name the folder as [culture name]. The culture name indicates name of the language and country.

For example, you will have to give name as fr-FR for French culture.

  1. Right-click the [culture name] folder, click Add, and then click NewItem.

  2. In the Add New Item dialog, click the Resource File, and then name the file name as Syncfusion.SfGantt.UWP.Resources.resw.


  1. Add the Name/Value pair in Resource Designer of Syncfusion.SfGantt.UWP.Resources.resw file, and change its corresponding value to the corresponding culture.

You can get the SfGantt’s key from the default resource Syncfusion.SfGantt.UWP.Resources.resw.
