Since the process of creating textlists for language-dependent titles of input screens and image objects is always the same, we shall explain it here with one specific example.

 

Before you can create text lists in several languages you need to make sure that these languages have been created in the Object Explorer under ' System > Language allocation '. It is also important that the text format (height and width) is the same for each language, so that texts in different languages are not displayed in different sizes.

 

To create a text list, proceed as follows:

 

Click on BtnSymb_Textliste to create a text list.

The "Field properties" dialogue will pop up.

In the "Normal" group field, click on the black box PctSymb_ForAndBackColor to define the foreground colour (text colour).

The 'colour selection' dialogue will pop up:

 

Click here to display / hide the image.        Illustration, Dialogue Select foreground colour

Dlg_ForeColorSelect

 

Click on the field containing the colour you want (e.g. white) to adopt this as the text colour.

In the "Normal" group field, click on the white box at the bottom PctSymb_ForAndBackColor2 to define the background colour (colour of the text list).

The 'colour selection' dialogue will pop up:

 

Click here to display / hide the image.        Illustration, Dialogue Select background colour

Dlg_BackColorSelect

 

Click on the large hatched field to give the text list a transparent background. If you want a coloured background, click on one of the coloured fields.

In the "Field" group field, click on Btn_DialogÖffnen2 to create the texts for the text lists.

The dialogue for text list parameters will pop up.

Allocate a descriptive name for the text list in the "Name" field.

Change to the "Attributes" register.

If required, select from the "Languages" group field under "Reference language" the language you wish to use as the standard language.

Enter the required text in the input field of the "Text" group field, e.g. "Delivery".

Without having clicked on "Apply" or "OK", change to the "Languages" group field and select the next language (here: English) under "Text list".

The text list still contains only one list element.

Enter the required text in the input field of the "Text" group field, here: "Delivery".

Without having clicked on "Apply" or "OK", change to the "Languages" group field and select the next language (here: French) under "Text list".

Enter the required text in the input field of the "Text" group field, here: "Livraison".

Without having clicked on "Apply" or "OK", change to the "Languages" group field and select the next language (here: Dutch) under "Text list".

Enter the required text in the input field of the "Text" group field, here: "Levering".

If the text list still contains only one list element, you have correctly created all texts of the text list in one and the same text element. Close the text list parameter dialogue by clicking on "OK".

The program returns you to the "Field properties" dialogue.

In the "Variable" group field, click on Btn_DialogÖffnen2 to create the control variable of the text list. Although not necessary, because we have a text list element, User management expects a corresponding variable.

The dialogue for creating a variable will pop up.

Allocate any name to the variable and click on "OK" to complete the dialogue.

The program returns you to the "Field properties" dialogue.

Click on "OK" to accept the text list.

If required, allocate a font Pct_FontSelection to the text list.

Position the text field where you want it to be.

Repeat this process for the other text lists.
