    change locale of

    gamba Newbie


      I'm using the rich:calendar component with a german Locale. Months and years are correct in german language but the {todayControl} always is "Today", also the "Clean" control in the footer.

      How can I change it to german locale, is it a bug?

      BTW: The code I'm using

      <rich:calendar value="#{props.attributeDateValue}" locale="Locale.DE"
       popup="true" showApplyButton="false"
       showWeekDaysBar="false" showWeeksBar="false"
       cellWidth="22px" cellHeight="20px"
       <f:facet name="footer">
       <h:outputText value="{todayControl}" />

          Hi Gamba,

          This can be localized using message bundles. Please take a look at users guide.

            Thank you for the answer,

            I know about message bundles. But I did not know that I have to change values for system bundles or framework bundles like richfaces.

            I thougt that changing the locale to german all bundle-values will appear in german. For the months it works, but not for the footer. So, this is an error in the german message bundle for richfaces?

              There's no german localization bundle.

                  I added the following messages in my resource bundle, but nothing changed in my webapp. The code of the app is the one from above:

                  # RichFaces-Calnedar labels
                  RICH_CALENDAR_TODAY_LABEL = Heute
                  RICH_CALENDAR_CLEAN_LABEL = Leeren
                  RICH_CALENDAR_CANCEL_LABEL = Abbrechen

                  Any hints?

                      I think so. I'm using this code in my faces-config.xml:


                      All other keys - values inside my messages.properties are found. But the Richfaces keys are not found ...

                        Ok I got it ....

                        After adding the additional


                        know all keys are found ... without the message-bundle-tag, which I placed there after my previous thread-entry the keys were not found ...

                          I'm having the same problem Gamba, you managed to solve this?

                          I put the name of my file calendar_pt_BR.properties package org.richfaces.renderkit.calendar and does not work.

                          Can anyone help?

                            Hi Ninho!

                            - Create a file (e.g.) mensagens.properties and put it in any package of you project (like util).

                            - Add the following messages in your mensagens.properties:

                            # Labels para Richfaces Calendar
                            RICH_CALENDAR_TODAY_LABEL = Hoje
                            RICH_CALENDAR_CLEAN_LABEL = Limpar
                            RICH_CALENDAR_CANCEL_LABEL = Cancelar

                            - Register your message file as resource bundle, in faces-config.xml:

                            Try it. Works for me.

                              Hi Hwoarang

                              That way I had managed to make work, but I wonder if you are using the package org.richfaces.renderkit.calendar, but for the organization.

                              Thanks for the help...
