Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules.In pyTwpradioButtons  rule caption labels are not localized.


This issue is resolved through the following local change:

The pyTwoRadioButtons control is a available rule. So customer can save as this control to custom ruleset and add below code to get localized caption for radio button 

Below is the local change for getting the label value to be localized.

pyTwoRadioButtons : 
<pega:save name="strValue" ref="$this-value" /> 
String firstCaption = tools.getLocalizedTextForString(".pyCaption",tools.getParamValue("FirstCaption")); 
String secondCaption= tools.getLocalizedTextForString(".pyCaption",tools.getParamValue("SecondCaption")); 

<input type="radio" name="<p:r n='$THIS-NAME' />" value='<p:r n="param.FirstValue"/>' class="Radio" 
<pega:when java='<%= tools.getSaveValue("strValue").equalsIgnoreCase(tools.getParamValue("FirstValue"))%>'> checked="checked" </pega:when> /> <%=firstCaption %> <br /> 

<input type="radio" name="<p:r n='$THIS-NAME' />" value='<p:r n="param.SecondValue"/>' class="Radio" 
<pega:when java='<%= tools.getSaveValue("strValue").equalsIgnoreCase(tools.getParamValue("SecondValue"))%>'> checked="checked" </pega:when> /> <%=secondCaption %>
