Localization is not working for results in Time Zone dropdown



Localization is not working for results of RF_TimeZoneList control. The control does not have the code to get the localized values.

Error Messages


Steps to Reproduce

Include the control RF_TimeZoneList in a section in the localized application.

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in customer application code/rules. 


This issue is resolved through the following local change:

The control "RF_TimeZoneList" is available rule. It can be saved as to have the below statement --
for(int i=0; i< timezones.length; i++) {
tools.appendString("<OPTION VALUE=\""+ timezones[i] +"\">"+ tools.getLocalizedTextForString("pyLabel",timezones[i]) + "</OPTION>");
By this statement, for all the timezones, the corresponding localized string would be shown in the select box.

It is required to create corresponding field values(pyLabel in @baseclass) in the application rule set for all those timezones which are candidates for localiization.
