    Hi,

    you can input both languages in the textbox. However I get the feeling that you're looking for language specific validation to see if a certain language as input maps to a language in which the site is provided. I haven't encountered this requirement yet and I also don't know if there are any specific controls that you can buy for this.

    Perhaps you can make up some arrays with the different character signs and try if you can check your input to see if there are no characters that fall outside the specified from your array (1 for the western and 1 for arabic characters).

    Grz, Kris.

    Hi,

    you can use localization for that. ASP.NET has built in functionality for this. Take a look at this video: [How Do I:] Create a Multi-Lingual Site with Localization?

    Hi,

    but here also i didnt findout any textbox entry with other languages...

    Then what are you after exactly? Did you install multiple language packs on your windows and set your Encoding in your browser to that specific language?

    Hi,

    textbox entry pre defined resourse not possible na

    You mean setting the Text property to something localized that comes from a resource file? Yes should be possible.

    Hi,

    As I stated in my first reply to you: yes it's possible to do so. A textbox is just a general entry form element in which you can place alphanumeric characters. On the other hand, like stated in this thread history, I don't think it's possible by default to limit to only input a certain character set/language when the rest of the localization is set to arabic for example. In that case it would still be possible in my opinion to enter things in french.
