3. Add UI elements for the default culture. This is the culture that will be used if no other culture is specified. 4. Set the Language property of your form to the culture for which you want to cre ate a localized form. 5. Add the localized UI content to your form. 6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each localized language. 7. Build your application. When CurrentUICulture is set to a localized culture, your application will load the appropriate version of the form by reading the corresponding resource files. If no resource files exist for a specified culture, the default culture UI will be displayed.

Some languages are read from right to left instead of from left to right as in most Latin alphabet languages. Forms provide a RightToLeft property that enables implementa tion of a right-to-left user interface. The RightToLeft property has three settings: Yes, No, and Inherit, with Inherit being the default value. When this property is set to Inherit, the RightToLeft property is deter mined by the value of the parent control. Setting a control s RightToLeft property to Yes does several things, depending on the type of control. Text alignment is reversed. Thus, any text that is normally left-aligned in the control becomes right-aligned. Form captions are displayed on the right side of the form. Vertical scroll bars are displayed on the left side of scrollable controls, and hori zontal scroll bars are initialized with the slider on the right side. CheckBox controls have their CheckAlign property reversed, tabs on TabControls are reversed, and the alignment of items in list-based controls such as list boxes and combo boxes are reversed. The content inside a control with the RightToLeft property set to Yes is unchanged. For example, consider TextBox with standard left-to-right formatting, as shown in Figure 11-1.

Advanced Topics in Windows Forms
Note that only the alignment of the text has changed, not the order of the characters the string is still read from left to right. Thus, if you create localized resources for cul tures that read from right to left, you must format the strings manually. Setting a form s RightToLeft property to Yes will cause it and any controls that have a RightToLeft value of Inherit to become right-aligned.
Creating a Mirrored Form
Forms made for cultures that read from left to right are commonly laid out to follow the writing direction. You might want to create a mirror image of your form for cul tures that read from right to left. You can create a mirrored form by using the RightToLeftLayout property of the form. When the RightToLeftLayout property for a form is set to True, the layout of the form will appear mirrored when the RightToLeft property of the form is set to True.
Quick Check
1. What is the difference between globalization and localization 2. What is the difference between the CurrentCulture and the CurrentUICulture
Quick Check Answers
1. Globalization refers to formatting existing data in formats appropriate for the current culture setting. Localization refers to retrieving appropriate data based on the culture. 2. The CurrentCulture determines how data is formatted as appropriate for the current culture setting. The CurrentUICulture determines what set of resource strings should be loaded for display in the user interface.
Lab: Create Localized Forms
In this lab, you will create localized forms. You will create a form for the default culture that demonstrates date/time display and currency display as well as strings for the default culture. Then you will create a localized version of this form that includes Ger man strings. Finally, you will create a form that allows you to choose the locale you would like to design your localized form for and sets the culture appropriately.
