Unable to localize the "Clear" button in the Date Range Control



Unable to localize the Clear button to  Swedish in the Date range control. However, the Apply button is localized by creating a pyCaption.Apply.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a View using a Date range.
  2. Create translated Field Values, 'pyCaption.Apply' as 'Bekräfta' and 'pyCaption.Clear' as 'Rensa', in a higher ruleset in the application (in this use case, the Language ruleset) in the @baseclass. The Date Range control displays the Apply button translated correctly to the new value. However, the Clear button is not localized.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.

All the locale translations for the DateTime control are loaded from the pzpega_ui_calendar_util JavaScript rule. In this file, translation exists for Apply (APPLY_TEXT) and Close (CLOSE_TEXT) buttons, but not for the Clear (CLEAR_TEXT) button. Hence, even when a field value for Clear is created, it is not fetched at runtime.
The Date Range control retrieves all translations present in the pzpega_ui_calendar_util rule from the pzpega_ui_daterangepicker JavaScript rule. In this rule, the references to load the translation for Clear text is referred as CLEAR_TEXT. As this is not present in the translation, the value becomes undefined and loads Clear as text at runtime.
Hence, the change is either to update the rule with CLEAR_TEXT translation value pzpega_ui_calendar_util rule or change the references of CLEAR_TEXT to CLOSE_TEXT in pzpega_ui_daterangepicker.


This feature is implemented in Pega Platform 8.3.2.
