Administration UI Configuration
Depending on which version of Westwind.Globalization you run for .NET Core or .NET 4.x the Administration UI set up is slightly different.
.NET Core no longer allows content as part of NuGet packages, and these zip files provide the additional content files you can add to your project.
This folder contains two sets of support files in zipped format:
Localization Administration UI for ASP.NET Core
This Zip file contains the HTML, CSS, Scripts and Images to run the Localization Administration UI for ASP.NET Core. Download
Sample Page and Resources for ASP.NET Core
This zip file contains a sample page and resources you can play with when first setting up Westwind.Globalization in a ASP.NET Core site. Download
Both of these HTML support addons rely on features of ASP.NET MVC in order to run. Make sure your ASP.NET Core app has
app.UseStaticFiles()as part of its startup code in order for the Admin UI to work.
.NET Core only
Here are the detailed steps:
- Download LocalizationAdministration_AspNetCore.zip
- Unzip the package into the root folder of your ASP.NET Core MVC application
From here on in getting the application to run is the same process as described in the Installation topic:
Before anything else make sure the application compiles and runs. You should be able to bring up the Administration UI now by going to (using port :5004 here):
When you run the application you get to the Admin UI and an error message on the bottom. You should also have a Create Database Button the upper right.
Make sure you've created a valid connection string in your configuration and that the database exists. Then click the Create Database button to create the database.
If all goes well you should now be seeing a few resources loaded inside of the resource editor.
If you want to use localized resources for the Administration UI (English and German are supported), you can also import resources from the shipped Resx resources. Importing allows you to view and edit the existing resources or potentially localize for other languages.
To import resources:
- Click Import or Export Resx
- Select Import Resources from ~/Properties/
- Click Import
- In the ResourceSet drop down find the LocalizationForm entry
- Click on Reload Resources to force resources to Refresh
You should now also be able to switch your language to German and see the UI running with German labels.
The ResourceTest Sample page allows you to check out Westwind Globalization in your application and to easily check and see if the localization configuration features are set up properly.
