Re: How to translate interface and messages

It was possible to translate all the strings of the "Export screen", except for the last button indicated in the image. Could anyone tell me how can I translate the string for this button?

Thanks

Re: How to translate interface and messages

Hello eduardo

Did you try :

Translate ('Export_the_whole_database_to_CSV','Exportar toda la base de datos a CSV');
Don't forget underscore between each english word

Re: How to translate interface and messages

Hi Jean,

Yes, tried this and other similar combinations without success.

Thanks for helping!

frmdbCoreExport.bExportAllToCSV.Caption:='';

Re: How to translate interface and messages

frmdbCoreExport.bExportAllToCSV.Caption:='';

That worked great... Thank you very much for helping!

Re: How to translate interface and messages

Hi all, is there a more in depth list? Because for example "No Record Selected For Editing" or "No Record Selected to Delete" are not there.
I tried for example with "No_Record_Selected_For_Editing" but it doesn't work.
Thank you all.

Re: How to translate interface and messages

Ciao Fabio, per la traduzione dei messaggi di sistema utilizzo lo script riportato all'inizio del post, inserito tra il begin e l'end al termine del listato del mio codice.
Spero possa aiutarti.

Hi Fabio, for the translation of system messages I use the script shown at the beginning of the post, inserted between the begin and the end at the end of my code listing.
I hope it can help you.

Re: How to translate interface and messages

I have the same problem with UI translation. But I have problems with message windows.
I used the below method but it didn't help.

begin
    Translate('Admin_user_not_found_A_user_with_administrator_privileges_will_be_created', 'Admin_user_not_found_A_user_with_administrator_privileges_will_be_created');
    Translate('Wrong_username_password', 'Wrong_username_password');
    Translate('Wrong_password', 'Wrong_password');
    Translate('Password_cannot_be_empty', 'Password_cannot_be_empty');
    Translate('The_password_and_confirmation_password_do_not_match', 'The_password_and_confirmation_password_do_not_match');
    Translate('Your_password_has_been_changed_successfully', 'Your_password_has_been_changed_successfully');
end.

PS I did not want to create a new topic, because it is related to the translation.

The messages on the left are issued by an authentication form. Look for a solution on the forum: you need to replace the login button click handler. Are the messages on the right displayed on the password change form? I suppose the solution would be the same - replace the click handler.
