We are developing a multilanguage application using Elegant Ribbon 3.1. The property "Localizable" is set to true in all forms in our project. Main form contains Ribbon control with several elegant ribbon’s buttons. We found, that designer stores values of "Text" property of all buttons in the FormaMain.resx file, in a such way:

<data name="button5.Text" xml:space="preserve">
<value>Select database</value>

So, there are not problems with localization of the button’s text - it’s enought to substitute a resources file with translated text.
On the contrary, the values of ScreenTip.Text properties are stored in FormMain.designer.cs file as

this.button5.Name = "button5";
this.button5.ScreenTip.Text = "Switch to another database";
this.button5.SmallImages.Images.AddRange(new Elegant.Ui.ControlImage[] {

It looks, like it’s not possible to localize text of tooltips using standard way through resources. Is it a bug or feature? Are you planing to change anything in the next versions of Elegant Ribbon?

Thanks in advance

I have found the same problem with localization of LabelText.
It’s really convenient to have a possibility to specify label for textbox, combobox and other controls directly in their properties, but it’s very inconvenient that this labels are not localizable.

Hope, you will fix this problem in the next releases of the library

Thanks in advance
