Localize CommandBar in WinForms C# Tutorial

The WinForms CommandBar control is a powerful and easy to use user interface control for Windows Forms. This CommandBar control provides large flexibility for developers to customize it. This article will talk about the localization customizing to the command bar.
Developers can localize command bar to display control and messages in a specific language through the coming steps.
  • Classes that are needed for localization customizing have been defined in WinFormsControls.UI namespace.
  • Create a class that inherits from the CommandBarLocalizationProvider class.
  • Override the method of GetLocalizedString.
  • Offer a translation to the label and user information. Otherwise, the default setting will be returned when the translation is not provided. In the example, the process will be guaranteed by the call to the GetLocalizedString method in the default clause of the switch statement.
The following C# code snippet shows how to implement the localization to command bar control

public class MyFrenchCommandBarLocalizationProvider : CommandBarLocalizationProvider
public override string GetLocalizedString(string id)
switch (id)
case CommandBarStringId.CustomizeDialogChooseToolstripLabelText: return "Rearrange a toolstrip:";
case CommandBarStringId.CustomizeDialogItemsPageTitle: return "Items";
case CommandBarStringId.CustomizeDialogMoveUpButtonText: return "Move Up";
case CommandBarStringId.CustomizeDialogToolstripsPageTitle: return "toolstrips";
case CommandBarStringId.OverflowMenuCustomizeText: return "Customize...";
default: return base.GetLocalizedString(id);
The C# code below illustrates the process of applying, instantiating, and assigning the localization customizing provider to the current localization provider

CommandBarLocalizationProvider.CurrentProvider = new MyFrenchCommandBarLocalizationProvider();
The C# code snippet posed previous also demonstrates the process to localize the command bar control.
