Topic: Datatables localization missing

MrSchizo pro asked 3 years ago

Expected behavior

Every text of the datatable module should be configurable by JS options in

Actual behavior

In src/mdb/pro/datatable/index.js line 241 the word "of" for the navigation text is hardcoded:

get navigationText() { const firstVisibleEntry = this._activePage * this._options.entries; return ${firstVisibleEntry + 1} - ${this.computedRows.length + firstVisibleEntry} **of** ${ this.searchResult.length }; }

Please make is configurable using the JS API

In order to assess the possibility of localization, you need to look into API tab of components you think you may need to use.

I will use the File Upload plugin as an example.

You can customize text for Remove button and all Errorr messages with options such as: removeBtn, previewMsg, maxSizeError, mainError, formatError, defaultMsg.

Hello, is localization of your components and plug-ins still on the “to-do” list for mdbootstrap 5? This is literally the only thing that makes me hesitant to pull the trigger on licensing MDB Pro 5 for our team—we have an enterprise application that must support ten different languages, including two RTL’s.

Even if we have to do the localization ourselves that’s not necessarily a dealbreaker—what worries me is that HOW to localize your components and plug-ins doesn’t seem to be documented anywhere (at least not from what I can see in the public documentation).

If I am mistaken, please point me to where resource localization is discussed for your components and plug-ins so that I can take a look and judge the level of effort that would be required. Thank you.
