Three simple steps to localize
The German and French Online-Help pages have been created with the help of machine translation. In doubt please read the English original.
Use this sheet to configure how forms are localized.
Specifies how VCL forms are localized. Possible options are:
|Set BiDiMode property||If checked Sisulizer changes the BiDiMode property when creating Middle Eastern forms. If the original value is bdLeftToRight, Sisulizer changes this to bdRightToLeft. This is applied only if ParentBiDiMode property of the same component is False.|
|Mirror forms||If checked Sisulizer mirrors the form and its sub components when creating a Middle Eastern form. Uncheck this if you call TForm.FlipChildren method before showing the form. This is because FlipChildren automatically mirrors the form.|
|Scan only forms from RcData||If checked only form data is scanned from RcData resources.|
|Scan inherited forms hierarchically||If checked inherited forms are show as sub nodes of the parent node in the project tree.|
|Separate lines||If checked each line of a Lines.Strings (e.g. TMemo.Lines) property is handled as a separate item. If unchecked the whole content of the List property is handled as a single item.|
|Use index in list items||If checked items of strings list (e.g. TMemo.Lines) will use index context instead of value index.
For example we have three items in a list box: One, Two and Three. If this check box is unchecked (default) each value will have following context values: ListBox1.Items.Strings.One, ListBox1.Items.Strings.Two and ListBox1.Items.Strings.Three. If this check box is checked the context values will be ListBox1.Items.Strings, ListBox1.Items.Strings and ListBox1.Items.Strings.
Specifies how the localized forms are scaled. VCL has a build-in form scaling. It works like this: When VCL loads a form it checks if the runtime height of the font is different to the design time height of the form. If it is VCL scales the components on the form. Unfortunately it does not scale the width and height of the form if the BorderStyle property is set to
bsDialog. As a result some of the components may be cut off. To fix this Sisulizer has a form scaling option. Possible values are:
|Disable scaling||If checked Sisulizer sets the TForm.Scaled property to False. This disables the build-in form scaling of VCL.|
|Scale forms||If checked Sisulizer scales the width and height of the form. This scaling is done properly for every form no matter what are the property settings. Unfortunately the build-in VCL scaling is always based runtime fonts of the OS where the application is running. When Sisulizer does the scaling on the developers computer this might be different than the actual runtime scaling.|
|Ignore||If checked Sisulizer does not change the Scaled, Width or Height properties.|
Specifies if Ansi strings are converted to Unicode strings when creating localized forms. Possible values are:
|Automatic||Ansi strings are written as Unicode strings if the original application was compiled with Unicode enabled VCL (Delphi 6 or later, C++Builder 6 or later) and it contains at least one Unicode string in its form(s).|
|No||Ansi strings are never converted to Unicode but are written as Ansi strings.|
|Yes||Ansi strings are written always as Unicode strings. Use this if you use Unicode enabled VCL (Delphi 2009 or later, C++Builder 2009 or later) or Unicode enabled components such as TNT or ElPack.|
