German Localization Bug in Windows L&F

    Details

      Description



      Name: gm110360 Date: 04/26/2002


      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.4.0-rc"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-rc-b91)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-rc-b91, mixed mode)

      FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :
      Microsoft Windows 2000 [Version 5.00.2195]
      ADDITIONAL OPERATING SYSTEMS :
      All Windows versions (assuming Swing is not localized based
      on a special Windows version)



      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The Windows L&F still contains at least ONE localization
      bug (in German) where the category "Recent" in the
      FileChooser is not correctly localized.
      (should be "Verlauf" maybe with the corresponding icon? but
      the label is more important in my opinion)

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1. Start Swing app (e.g. SwingSet2)
      2. Change L&F to "Windows"
      3. Call a JFileChooser (Standard/Generic in the SwingSet2)

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      Expected: German label "Verlauf" as in Windows apps
      Actual: "Recent" in that one label

      This bug can be reproduced always.

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      See SwingSet2 sources for JFileChooser
      (German locale !)
      ---------- END SOURCE ----------

      CUSTOMER WORKAROUND :
      Use a different locale :[
      Or accept the partly localized UI ;)
