    Recently, I tried to apply multiLanguage for my WinForm project. A designSuface was add to a Form that supporting the basic opration such as coppy, cut, move and so on. Now  I want to change the language of the  propetyGrid items that according to a form or a control. So far, the propety in the propertyGrid of a form can change successfuly, but properties' category can not change.   The test project has been upload to GitHub:

    Some one can download it and try to test it. Maybe can help me resolve this problem.

  • Hi,

    If you can't change the language of "category" to English, you may try to create a new PropertyGrid in English version.

    Actually, propertyGrid showing properties of a form. The property category is designed in a form class. I want customize a class of  CategoryAtrribute,as following showing, that this class can achieve UI propertyGrid language changing. This class can change the property item language when set language when run a project, the propertyGrid language will showing as  UI language setting. But, alftering the project created, this class will not called again  when UI language changing .

    public class LocalizedCategoryAttribute : CategoryAttribute
         public LocalizedCategoryAttribute(string res ourceKey):base(resourceKey)
            protected override string GetLocalizedString(string key)
                 string value = MainFormLanguageResource.ResourceManager.GetString(key,Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture);
