Changing languages at runtime

The language of runtime display items such as alarm descriptions, button text, keyboard/alarm logs, graphic text, Cicode strings and so on can be changed dynamically at runtime using the SetLanguage() function. Normal operations of the project continue unaffected.

Note: Forms do not automatically update when the language is changed using the SetLanguage() function. They need to be closed and reopened for the change to take place.

Local translations that are missing from the specified language database are replaced by the native equivalent. You can specify to display "#MESS", instead of the native text, by setting the [Language]DisplayError parameter to 1 (one); the default is 0 (zero).
