C obj.pngTEXTS is a convenience class to access the Text Provider Services used for the localization of the texts in the user interface.

Description

Add a description


TEXTS.get("persons");

It is possible to use some Parameters:

String name = "Bob";
int age = 13;
 
TEXTS.get("NameWithAge", name, age);

In this case, some placeholders for the parameters are needed in the translated text:

 NameWithAge={0} is {1} years old;

properties files

Scout uses the java.util.ResourceBundle mechanism for native language support. So whatever language files you have in your <project-prefix>.shared/resources/texts/*.properties are taken as translation base.

Example setup:

  • <project-prefix>.shared/resources/texts/Texts.properties
  • <project-prefix>.shared/resources/texts/Texts_fr.properties

If your application starts with the -vmargs -Duser.language=fr or eclipse.exe -nl=fr the translations in Texts_fr.properties are considered. In case of any other user language the translations in Texts.properties are considered.
