    It seems that the FileUpload control does not include a Text property. How do I localize the display of this control?

    Thanks in advance,

    If you are talking about the Browse text, then you get this for free.  The caveat with this control is that this text is being pull from the Browser itself.  This text does not come from the .NET Framework.  Therefore you can't just change the language in the browser to see the change, like you can do with most other controls, ie the Calendar.  You have to either be running on the foreign OS or use a Multi-Language Pack and switch to that Language.  Then we you run it in the Localized Browser it will display correctly.  NOTE:  You will not see this change at Design Time unless you are running against a Localized version of VS.

    I tried it out and it work perfectly.  It change Browse... to Parcourir... when I changed to a French OS.

    Let me know if you have any problems.

    There are third party controls that have addressed this.
