Ext.js - Localization


Advertisements


It is always best to communicate with the users in the language they understand and prefer. Extjs localization package supports over 40 languages such as German, French, Korean, Chinese, etc. It is very simple to implement the locale in ExtJs. You’ll find all of the bundled locale files in the override folder of the ext-locale package. Locale files just overrides that tells Ext JS to replace the default English values of certain components.

The following program is to show the month in different locale to see the effect. Try the following program.

            Ext.create('Ext.grid.Panel', {

               id : 'gridId',
               width: 600,
               height: 200,
               title:'Month Browser',
               
               columns:[{
                  text: 'Month of the year',
                  dataIndex: 'month',
                  width: 300
               }],
               store: ds,
               bbar: Ext.create('Ext.toolbar.Paging', {

                  store: ds,

               })
            }); 
            Ext.getCmp('gridId').getStore().load();

      </script>
   </head>
   
   <body>
      <div id = "grid" />
   </body>
</html>

The above program will produce the following result

For using different locale other than English, we would need to add the locale specific file in our program. Here we are using https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/extjs/6.0.0/classic/locale/localefr.js for French. You can use different locale for different languages such as https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/extjs/6.0.0/classic/locale/locale-ko.js for korean, etc.

The following program is to show the date picker in Korean locale to see the effect. Try the following program.
