Translation Mechanism of System Messages

Previous Next

An SMG file contains the original English system messages for the application as well as the translated messages. When a message must be issued, USoft Developer reads the SMG file. If the translated message is found, it is displayed on the screen. If not, the original English message is displayed.


As discussed in the section, "How to Call User-Defined System Messages", you must use the MessageLanguage() application method for messages that must be translated. The message text in the other methods is hard-coded in the parameter list of the method, and therefore not defined through the System Messages window, and not stored in the T_SYS_MSG table.
