How to change the language for a pre-defined tooltip-text.
There is a need to change the language for a text, in the below situation:
There is a required field on a CA Service Catalog Form.
And when you click on this field, a popup opens with the text: "This field is required".
The question then is: How to change the language for this text?
CA Service Catalog r14.1 on Windows.
Without any tool tip set manually on the required form field itself,
once you open a request with that form
and you do not enter any data in such required field
and then add it to the cart,
then you will get a validation popup AND a 'tooltip', while hovering over the field-in-error.
With the default text, in English: "This field is required".
The following is to be explained on that:
The appearing text: "This field is required" is not in to be customized in an .xsl or .xml file.
Which means that for a possible localization of this text, there is no "source" file to be changed.
A solution for this might be to edit the form and add a 'tool tip' yourself to such a field.
You can add the text in the language you prefer.
Another explanation is the following:
These text-values are part of gxt-gwt22.jar file.
This information is part of the XMessages.properties file inside that jar.
And these files are being delivered by GXT which is a 3rd-party product.
Which holds another possibly solution for you then:
You can use a 'tool' to
extract the .jar content,
make the changes that you need to make,
(re)build the .jar again and then
use this in your environment.
An important note to this is: this is out of scope of Level 1 Support.
And a difficult customization to manage when e.g. a patch is delivered which such a file included.
