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

Windows 2000 UI Innovations: Enhance Your User's Experience with New Infotip and Icon Overlay Shell


Windows 2000 includes some helpful new UI features you can customize and implement in your own applications. In this article you'll see how to provide infotips for files, after making the appropriate registry entries. Then create a custom column handler extension, resulting in a new column for the Explorer's Details view. In order to further extend the shell, additional UI goodies will also be examined and implemented including: search handlers, cleanup handlers, folder customizations using property sheet handlers and icon overlays, and context menu shell extensions. All the code samples are rolled up into a handy package which we've named, by tradition, ShellToys.

Treeview - how to change node icon depending on node contents

I have a treeview in an MVVM application: <TreeView ItemsSource="{Binding RootNodes}"> <TreeView.ItemContainerStyle> <Style TargetType="{x:Type TreeViewItem}"> <Setter Property="IsExpanded" Value="{Binding IsExpanded, Mode=TwoWay}" /> <Setter Property="IsSelected" Value="{Binding IsSelected, Mode=TwoWay}" /> <Setter Property="FontWeight" Value="Normal" /> <Style.Triggers> <Trigger Property="IsSelected" Value="True"> <Setter Property="FontWeight" Value="Bold" /> </Trigger> </Style.Triggers> </Style> </TreeView.ItemContainerStyle> <TreeView.ItemTemplate> <HierarchicalDataTemplate ItemsSource="{Binding Children}"> <TextBlock Text="{Binding NodeName}" /> </HierarchicalDataTemplate> </TreeView.ItemTemplate> </TreeView> The treeview is bound to an ObservableCollection called RootNodes. Elements in the RootNodes collection expose a member "NodeName" which is the text for the nodes in the treeview at runtime. They also expose a member called "NodeType", effectively an enumeration that indicates what type of icon should be displa

Windows.Forms.Label size change issue



In a Windows Forms application developed with VB2008 Express, Label controls change size the first time the .Text property is updated.


On a Windows XP Pro SP3 system where the app was developed the labels retain the size set at design time.  On other systems, one also Windows XP, one Windows 7, labels shrink (all to the same size independent of content) the first time their .Text property is updated.  Labels that do not have their .Text property updated retain their design size.

Additional information:

The labels all occur within a FixedPanel of a SplitContainer.
Salient properties for the Label controls:
Anchor: Top, Left
AutoSize: False
BorderStyle: FixedSingle
Dock: None
Enabled: True
FlatStyle: Standard
Image: None
Locked: False
Margin: 0,0,0,0

Windows Authentication doesn't work after change of admin pass



J have read many answers about

Login failed for user ''. The user is not associated with a trusted SQL server connection

error, but I don't want to mess up in my sql server so I want to be sure that what I do is OK.

Environment description:

In my company, we have our own application wchich we use to connect to database. All users use SQL Server Auth except me. I can log using Windows Auth from server and from my second computer.

Now everything works fine.

- My comp is in our domain 'OurDomian'.

- On server in AD is admin account 'SqlAdmin'.

- In MSSMS in Security->Logins there is account: OurDomian\SqlAdmin

- on my comp account OurDomian\SqlAdmin is added

I can log to sql server from  my comp using 'Integrated Security' in application with no problem.

Problem description:

Problem starts when I change SqlAdmin password on server.

When I connect from my comp I get the above error. But when I connect from server there is no problem.

I searcher application code and I don't think that I have to change somthing in it. Probably I have to change something with account and permissions.

1. Will it bee enough to delete and add again 'OurDomian\SqlAdmi

Change windows password remotely


Hi all,

Not sure where to post this, so I thought I'd start here...

I am designing a website (ASP.NET in VB) and I'd like it to have the following features: to generate a random string to be used as a password. This bit I should be able to manage, the bit I don't have a clue on is how I can pass this to a Windows machine (on a workgroup not AD) to change a user's account password.

In summary, can anyone help me to remotely change a user's password on a Windows workgroup machine using ASP.NET with VB?

FYI, I have full administrator access.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
Jim :-)

Change Password for Windows Authentication


Hello all,

I do not seem to be able to find even a yes no answer on this...

Using windows Authentication... is it possible to progrematically change a password?


I tried using several ways to do this. I tried using the ChangePassword  control. This tells me that minimun characters is 7 even though I have more then 7 characters... I also tried using this method:

            if (u.ChangePassword(TextBox2.Text, TextBox3.Text))
                LabelError.Text = "Password changed.";
                LabelError.Text = "Password change failed. Please re-enter your values and try again.";
        catch (Exception ex)
            LabelError.Text = "An exception occurred: " + Server.HtmlEncode(ex.Message) + "<BE>" + ex.ToString() + ". Please re-enter your values and try again.";


The user is always null... and I am assuming this is because this object is indended to use with Forms authentication.


All I want to do is have an option for users to change passwords. Is this possible with Windows Authentication?

Any way to change the icon to toggle the parameter panel in SSRS 2008 R2?


Is there any way I can change the icon that the HTML viewer in SSRS 2008 R2 uses to toggle the parameter panel?

I have users telling me it is too small and they want it bigger.  When I look at the page with the IE developer toolbar, the icon looks like it is being pulled from a resource inside ReportViewerWebControl.axd,

Conditionally Change Folder Icon in document library view (SP 2007)


Hi All,

How can I change the folder icon in the default document library view?  The catch is, I don't need to do this across the board, instead, I need a custom folder icon based upon the individual folder's properties.

I'm aware of the file ..\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\XML\DOCICON.XML, but that's not what I need.

My initial thought, was to find the page that sharepoint uses as the template, find the <img> src attribute, and chnage it from


to something like


my GetIcon.aspx page would then look up the folder's properties, and return the expected .gif file.  However, I don't know which file is used.


System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser unable to update or change


I am using this WebBrowser component in a C# project.

I have declared and use "_wb" as shown below::

string httpcmd = @"https://...........";

System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser _wb = new System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser();                
_wb.ScriptErrorsSuppressed = false;                
Uri myuri = new Uri(httpcmd);
_wb.Url = myuri;
while (_wb.ReadyState != System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowserReadyState.Complete)


The above code in within a class.

Once my program uses the above code once, it then does seem possible to change.

i.e. After the first iteration, nothing changes each time the code is run.

The DocumentText property I reference stays the same once it is set.

It is like the URI is not even re-sent.

Only if I close the application and then re-run then the webbroweser will update as desired.

I have seen many references to this problem but have not been able to resolved it.

Can anyone suggest how to get this componet to reset or clear so it behaves like I have re-run the application?
