How to Localize Windows Forms and Change the Language at Runtime

Localization is the process of customizing your application to a particular language, culture or locale. Visual Studio provides support for localizing Windows Forms with much ease. In this article, we will see how to localize windows forms and give the user the ability to change to his preferred language at runtime.
When you run a localized application, the appearance is determined by two culture values. The UICulture property is used to specify which resource files will be loaded for the form. The Culture property, on the other hand, determines how strings such as dates, numerals, and currency amounts are formatted.
Let us see the steps required to create a localized form. You can then expand this example and adopt the same approach for the rest of the forms in your project

Change Regional Settings

I need to change regional settings on SharePoint so that the date format is not mm/dd/yyyy but dd/mm/yyyy.I have seen that this can take place if i go to Home site->Site Settings->Regional Settings and change the locale from there. All are perfect up to here. Since i need this change to take effect on subsites as well I check the "All sub-sites inherit these Regional Settings". After Pressing ok, i get an error message "Please turn off all indexed columns before changing the collation of this site. One or more list or library contains a column that has been marked for indexing. ..."How can i stop this indexing temporary? i tried to stop the indexing service from service administration but this didn't work.After applying this change, i hope my dates will not be lost, correct (this is the production server.....)? Will i have any problem with the search? Do i need further actions?a.rongas

Handling Type namespace/assembly change during serialization

We needed to move a class from one assembly to another due to referencing issues.  However, we have Workflows in the field where this type is serialized into them and we get the Failed to load type error.  I was wondering if there was anything like AssemblyResolve for handling type load failures where we can correct the type and load the correct one?

How to change user language of reporting services?


I installed an english version of SQL Server 2008 R2 on a German version of WIndows 2008. All the SQL Server programs etc. work in English, except when using the Report Manager (http://localhost/Reports) and the Report Generator, which for some reason are both in German. I tried to change this via the Report Manager and configuration tools, but to no avail - I can find no setting which affects which language is displayed. Can anyone suggest a solution to this problem?

Regional settings (locale) in SP - is there any way to change that settings? eg. date format

The system I use is MOSS2007. I have regional settings set to "Polish". The default date format is yyyy-mm-dd, what is wrong because usually is dd-mm-yyyy. Is there any way to change specific regional settings? I couldn't have found it on internet. I've tried to change to "French", which gives me dd-mm-yyyy, but then eg. in calendar I have days and months in French language :)

Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) Loop

discovered an interesting error recently while working with Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) that, surprisingly, had received no ink. Partly what surprises me about this is that the error may require you to rewrite large sections of your code if you haven't previously considered this SharePoint limitation. I'll start with some context, but first of all the error is:


Every self-respected programmer should include exception handling techniques. Sometimes your application will generate an error. Regardless of who was responsible for this error, the programmer or the user, it is up to the first to include the necessary exception handling techniques to keep his/her program from crashing. The .Net environment provides useful techniques for avoiding disastrous errors such as try-catch statements and user-defined exceptions.

Global Exception Handling with ASP.NET

After your global exception handler has done its work, you'll want to redirect the users of your website to a friendly page that tells them that something has gone wrong, and then provide them with customer support information as well as a link back to your web application's home page.
