Localization of Data Table Column Headings

App Localization is the process of rendering your app in multiple languages. WaveMaker allows you to create a dictionary of localized messages so that users can change the language of the application to experience the application in their language.

This capability can be extended to localize the column headings of a Data Table.Prerequisite

    2. add language using the Manage Language option, if not added already
    3. add the column names as message key in multiple languages.
  2. Open the Advanced Settings of the data table widget and navigate to the Columns tab.
  3. Bind the respective message keys to the "Title" property of the columns.
