I want to localize my application, but I have no idea how, do you have some tutorial on this? I’ve checked your LanguageSwitcher sample application, but there is lot of code calling undocumented functions like RscInst_RemoveAll() and it does not even work. When I switch the language, menus are changed, but main dialog is always in English.
Would it be simpler if I don’t need language switch on the fly? How can I set the language when application starts? Thank you.

I was not calling CExtMenuControlBar::LoadMenuBar(). It seems it is not necessary when application is not localized, but now it helped.

This is generally in the rc file. Make sure they are separated by language defines.

Here is what I use for hot switching

VERIFY( g_CmdManager->ProfileSetup(m_ProfUISControlsProfileName ) );

CWinApp * pApp = ::AfxGetApp();

// these are for reference
int nEnglishvalue = (INT)__EXT_MFC_LANG_ID_ENGLISH_US; // 1033
int nGermanvalue = (INT)__EXT_MFC_LANG_ID_GERMAN; // 1031
int nFrenchvalue = (INT)__EXT_MFC_LANG_ID_FRENCH; // 1036
int nDutchvalue = (INT)__EXT_MFC_LANG_ID_DUTCH_NETHERLANDS; // 1043

m_nCurrentLangDefine = GetProfileInt( _T("LocalizationSettings"), _T("LanguageID"), (INT)__EXT_MFC_LANG_ID_ENGLISH_US );
// these are left for testing
//WORD nDesiredLangID =(WORD) GetProfileInt( _T("LocalizationSettings"), _T("LanguageID"), (INT)__EXT_MFC_LANG_ID_ENGLISH_US );
//WORD nDesiredLangID =(WORD) GetProfileInt( _T("LocalizationSettings"), _T("LanguageID"), (INT)__EXT_MFC_LANG_ID_GERMAN );
//WORD nDesiredLangID =(WORD) GetProfileInt( _T("LocalizationSettings"), _T("LanguageID"), (INT)__EXT_MFC_LANG_ID_FRENCH );
//WORD nDesiredLangID =(WORD) GetProfileInt( _T("LocalizationSettings"), _T("LanguageID"), (INT)__EXT_MFC_LANG_ID_DUTCH_NETHERLANDS );

g_ResourceManager->SetLangIdDesired( m_nCurrentLangDefine );

Thank you, I’ve using the same technique, now everything works except one important problem in SDI application - main frame menu (IDR_MAINFRAME) still shows English texts in top level, only submenus are localized. Do you have idea what could be wrong? I call SetLangIdDesired() in the application InitInstance() before main frame is created.
