Localizing SpreadSheet

You can easily localize SpreadSheet, by defining all the necessary language settings.

It's possible to localize the following properties:

  • labels on the instruments panel
  • tooltips for instruments

Labels and tooltips of SpreadSheet instruments' are stored in the webix.i18n.spreadsheet object:

webix.i18n.spreadsheet = {
        // formats

To apply a custom locale, you can follow one of the two ways:

1) redefine default labels and tooltips according to your locale directly in the webix.i18n.spreadsheet object;

2) set a certain locale as described below:

  • include the chosen locale library into your page:
<script src="../../../codebase/i18n/ru.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
  • define 'spreadsheet' labels and tooltips in the webix.i18n.locales[localeName] object:
webix.i18n.locales['ru-RU'].spreadsheet = {
       "common": "Общий",
       "currency": "Валюта",
       "color": "Цвет текста",
  • apply the created locale with the help of the setLocale method:
