Adapting to the language

There are several properties that can be customized and that allow to adapt the control for displaying the texts in the language of the user.

These properties are in two categories:

1) The ToolTipTexts that will show the title bar buttons.

2) The ones about the text that will show the change skin dialog box.

3) The system menu captions. 

At design time the first ones can be set from the property page 'Buttons' and the second ones from the property page 'Change skin dialog box'. You can also assign them at run time, that would be necessary if the program is designed to work with more than one language. 

The properties of the ToolTipTexts are:

CloseButtonToolTipText
MaxButtonToolTipText
RestoreButtonToolTipText
MinButtonToolTipText
MinToBarButtonToolTipText
RestoreFromBarButtonToolTipText
AlwaysOnTopButtonToolTipText
AlwaysOnTopDownButtonToolTipText
ChangeSkinButtonToolTipText
CustomButtonToolTipText
HelpButtonToolTipText

The properties that set the texts for the Change skin dialog box are:

ChSD_FormCaption
ChSD_ManualSetFrameCaption
ChSD_TitleBarSkinComboBoxCaption
ChSD_TitleBarForeColorSetCaption
ChSD_BodySkinComboBoxCaption
ChSD_BodyForeColorSetCaption
ChSD_ChangeForeColorCaption
ChSD_SaveToFileCaption
ChSD_LoadFromFileCaption
ChSD_UseSkinFileCaption
ChSD_OkCommandButtonCaption
ChSD_CancelCommandButtonCaption

The properties that set the captions for the system menu:

SysEnableSkinCaption
SysDisableSkinCaption

The system menu options will also show the ones that the window shows by default: Maximize, Minimize, Close, Restore, Move, Size, and also, depending on the setting of the ShowSysCommands property, it will display the options of the buttons added to the title bar and the chance to enable/disable the skin, the captions of these last ones are the ones set in the SysEnableSkinCaption y SysDisableSkinCaption properties.

The captions of the options corresponding to the buttons added to the title bar (the buttons can be MinToBarButton, HelpButton, ChangeSkinButton, AlwaysOnTopButton and CustomButton) will be taken automatically from the properties of its ToolTipText of each one:
