Hi,

I am working on China based project and they want to switch the UI controls and indicator’s labels, 

menu or selection control and messages into two different language i.e. English or *****.

Yes and no. Yes you can do it, no you can't do it automatically. You have to write your code to be configurable in this way.

You cannot change the labels of controls and indicators at runtime, but you can change the captions. And you cannot change the captions of strict type defs.

Check it in your PC, whether you can display ***** Characters for the Captions/Labels.

For control text we can’t change Language directly so, we need to create two Language Texts for each Controller/Indicator. Based on user request we need to update Caption Language.

 

As per below snippet,

Just I wrote, ***** & English (because I can't write ***** characters on my FP). In your case you need pass ***** & English text separately.

Also, you can't programattically change labels. You can however change the captions with property nodes.
