Hi team!

I don't see string key for 'Close' button text (Find/Replace dialog) among the keys above and I failed to guess it :(

Could you please give me any tip?

Posted 16 years ago by Actipro Software Support - Cleveland, OH, USA
Yes it should be the "General_CloseButton_Text" item.

Hi Team!
One more question/suggestion regarding this topic.
First of all I'm glad to say that your tips helped to translate Syntax Editor's Find/Replace dialog in our product to 7 European/Asian languages (and 3 are coming soon)! But since then it became a problem to fit localized strings into given sizes of dialog's controls. For example here are three pictures demonstrating localized dialogs:


I suggest to slightly adjust controls in this dialog: make search/replace buttons wider, and shift combobox to the right so it will be more space for "Use".
Is it possible? What do you think?

Hi Alexey,

Thanks for the screens. Just so you know, we also include the full source for the find/replace form in the sample project. You can take that and modify it however needed to support other length strings. It's the same as the dialog we use internally. We can try and improve our sizes in the future though too.
