With international offices in Singapore, South Africa, the U.S., the U.K., Poland, and Abu Dhabi, it's safe to say that Alpha Five has developers all over the world.
In fact, back in January I noticed that our website traffic came from all over the world! So while we were working on Alpha Five Version 11, we kept in mind that many of our developers spoke different languages.
Although our grid builder has always allowed our users to set their own default properties, those properties were only activated when creating a new grid. In Version 11, the default properties will always be used -- even if you use a template. This makes it much, much easier to customize the grid builder for our developers whose native language is not English.
To change the language of a grid, head to the grid builder and click on "options," just like always. But this time, you'll see a new choice in the drop-down menu labeled, "set default properties." When it's selected, you'll get a full window showing the default property values, and have the option of either defining the default property values yourself, or making changes to the predetermined system default property values.
Once you've laid out the properties in whatever language you've chosen, head over to make your grid, and activate it with your customized properties. Make sure to turn on the working preview so that you know the language has been changed.
And voila! Successone! Ai caramba! Wunderbar! Click on the video below to find out how you can create a new grid that speaks a brand new language.
