To view the details of a selected locale, click Properties. The next page displays the locale properties grouped into categories. For locales you have added, you can edit the fields and click Save to save these changes. You cannot edit the system locales provided with Caché. The properties are as follows:
To take further actions, click the following buttons:
Validate Validates the selected locale, displaying an error message if the locale cannot be validated. This is useful when creating custom locales.
Copy Creates a copy of the selected locale, which you can then customize. The name of the copy must contain four characters beginning with y and ending with 8 or w. The default description is Copy of %locale, where %locale is the selected locale name. When the copy is created, it is added to the Select a locale drop-down.
Export Exports a locale to an .xml file. For example, you might export a custom locale you created and import it on another instance using the Import Locale page. The default name is loc_%locale.xml, where %locale is the selected locale. In addition, you can include the path of the export file; if you do not specify the path, the default location is install-dir\Mgr.
Install Installs the selected locale as the current locale for the instance. An initial validation occurs; if it fails, an error message displays, otherwise you can continue with installation.
Load Table Lets you load a table from the selected locale (the current locale or another) into memory from disk. Select a table type and then a table name from the list populated after you select the type. Click OK to load the table or Cancel to close the dialog box and return to the Locale Definitions page.
Delete Deletes a locale. You can delete only custom locales; the button is disabled when a system locale is selected. You cannot delete the current locale even if it is a custom locale. You must confirm deletion of the locale before proceeding.
