Is it possible to localize a widget name (EN) or (DE)

Hi all,

 

may someone knows how to do this and can give me a hint or solution.

 

My problem is that I want to localize my widget to have different widget names if the blackberry language changes from English to German and back. Like name the widget "Rechner" in German and "Calculator" in English.

 

Is this possible or is the only way to name a widget by setting the name in config.xml of widget?

 

Thank you for your help and kind regards

Stephan

Do you want to change the name of the application in the device application list (modules) or simply change the Home Screen Icon text for your application?

I want to change the name that it shows up in the correct language in the download folder. I think this is the device application list, right?

Hi There,

 

The application list is found in the Options area of your BlackBerry device.  If you are looking to change the name of your application as it appears in the Downloads folder you can use the setHomeScreenName() JavaScript function.
