GridControlLocalizer Class

A base class that provides necessary functionality for custom localizers of the Data Grid control.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v24.1.Core.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.Grid.Core


public class GridControlLocalizer :



Important: Not all strings can be translated via Localizer classes. Some components contain form resources (e.g., the XtraReports Search dialog), and the only way to translate them is to create satellite assemblies. Thus, localization via resources is the preferable solution.


This example uses the GridControlLocalizer to replace the following GridControl‘s strings:

  • Customize… → Customize Totals
  • Totals for ‘Column Name’ → Totals Editor
  • Items → Summary Items
