In my last article I've mentioned about a workaround that you may use in case of if you don't want to
Reportviewer component's internal toolbar. In this article I'm telling the way that if you want to
use your own toolbar component (like Infragistics etc. ), simply hide internal toolbar and use your own
toolbar and implement methods by yourself. You can reach this article here.
After I post this article some developers send some comments about what do they need to do if they want to use
Microsoft's own toolbar but if they want to localize it. So I decided to write a new article about it. And Jan de Groot
send me a great idea and working code about this and wanted me to write this article. I appreciate him for both his help and
being so kind...
Localizing Reportviewer Component to Turkish
What you need to to is : Create a new class and derive it
from IReportViewerMessages and set messages into your
specified custom language.
public class CustomReportViewerMessages:IReportViewerMessages
if (reportViewerMessages != null)
this.backButtonToolTip = reportViewerMessages
this.backMenuItemText = reportViewerMessages
More Resources about RDL
Create a message class and customize it 's messages as you wish and use it on reportviewer.
private void customizeMessages()
this.customMessages = new CustomReportViewerMessages(
this.customMessages.FindButtonText = "Bul";
"Girilen metni bul";
Using the code
You can simply call your customization method after you set report path:
In the source code project there are also some extra buttons on the toolstrip.
For full implementation see the source file above.
Microsoft ReportViewer is a powerful component to display your report and RDL is a good way to implement
reporting features. I believe that in near future, many RDL designer tools and RDL viewer tools will be available
on the market.
