A Sisulizer project contains one or more sources. Each source specifies an item or items to be localized. A source can be one of the following types:
|A single file||Localizes one single file.||C:\MyFiles\MyApplication.exe|
|All similar files in a directory||Localizes all similar files in a directory and optionally on its sub directories as well.||C:\MyFiles\Help\*.htm?|
|A database||Localizes one database.||C:\MyFiles\MyData.mdb|
There is a specific source class for each supported file format and one for databases. Each source has an property editor dialog box that lets the user to configure how the source is localized. To open the property dialog box of a source right click the name of the source on the project tree and choose Properties.
Use this source type when you have a single file or few files that you want to locale. To create a project containing a single file source, start Project Wizard, check Localize a file or files and go through Project Wizard.
Use this source type when you want to localize several files and they locate in a same directory or its sub directories. The different between this source type and the single file source type is that single file source contains a specific file name (e.g. C:\MyFiles\Sample.htm) but this source type contains a wild card file name (e.g. C:\MyFiles\*.htm). If you add new files in the directory you do not have to add those files in the Sisulizer's project file. It is enough that you rescan the project. To create a project containing an all similar files source, start Project Wizard, check Localize all similar files in a directory and go hrough Project Wizard. Some sources do not accept wild cards in the file name. For example most application file sources such as Delphi source, .NET source do not accept wild cards. In these cases you have to use single file sources.
There is only one database source type: Database source. Use this source type when you want to localize a database. To create a project containing a database source, start Project Wizard, check Localize database data and go through Project Wizard.
