Excluding controls from translation
Posted by Gian Luca De Bonis, Last modified by Gian Luca De Bonis on 28 January 2010 03:20 PM
Q:
Our application is not a standard PB application. We use a lot of singlelineedit, multilineedit and ddlb controls.
Can I easily prevent translation for any controls which inherit from, say, u_sle? I tried ci_mode_coverage, and values in those controls were dotted.

A:
Take a look to the Translation Rules function in Enable Author. You can:
- exclude a class name (only direct descendants will be considered), except in some contexts
- exclude a class name only in some contexts
- exclude a control name in specific contexts (in this case the general rule is ignored - only context-specific are taken into account)

The Computed Fields function allows you to exclude translation of computed fields in a specific datawindow (leave the field name blank to exclude all computed fields from translation).
