some dialog char not in English

    Try import LDIF, some dialog char not in English.

    Can you be more specific, please? Which chars, where do they appear exactly?

    When you first open the tool and it asks you if you would like it to be the
    default LDAP browser. The Yes and No buttons are in German.

    Also errors like duplicates or existing recording produce non English errors.

    Hi Tihomir!
    I also noted that when SSL is configured and LDAP Admin is opened and doesn't
    recognize the ssl cert, it has a window popup with the title "Warnung" and
    yes/no is ja/nein. Also, when moving an object, the confirmation popup has a
    window title of "Bestatigung" with an ok button (correct) and cancel that says
    "Abbrechen". Same thing for deleting objects, same title "Bestatigung" and
    ja/nein. So, it's not really characters, as it is whole words and
    phrases....particularly dialog boxes.
    Hope that helps.
    Thanks for time and patience, Tihomir. Your software, LDAP Admin, is

    Ok, I am aware of this problem... it's a Delphi thing. My Delphi is German and it produces the German messages for built-in functions... I'm still looking for a way around this...

    Hi Tihomir,

    I will try to recompile the source with an English version, and to solve another problem in display windows 7 with the screen set to 120 DPI, but I tried with both Delphi 2009 and Delphi X2, but it returns the errors, can you tell me with which version did you use?

    Tanks Simone.

    I use Delphi 5/7, but I have succesfully compiled it on Delphi X2 (only v1.4)... where does it report errors?

      Sorry for the late reply, but I tried to look for the X2 version to see if it was that, I was using CodeGear RAD Studio 2009.
      The error is also present in X2:

      [DCC Error] adsie.pas (58): E2251 Ambiguous overloaded call to 'GetProcAddress'
      Winapi.Windows.pas (34362): Related method: function GetProcAddress (NativeUInt; PAnsiChar): Pointer;
      Winapi.Windows.pas (34363): Related method: function GetProcAddress (NativeUInt; PWideChar): Pointer;
      [DCC Fatal Error] ADPassDlg.pas (53): F2063 Could not compile used unit 'adsie.pas'

      I do not know where I'm wrong, normally use and java.

    The Compiler does not know which function to use so just typecast the @ProcName[1] to wide char: PWideChar(@ProcName[1]). Or exchange the line at 59 with:

    Result := GetProcAddress(ActiveDSHandle, PWideChar(@ProcName[1]));
    Result := GetProcAddress(ActiveDSHandle, PAnsiChar(@ProcName[1]));

    Hi Tihomir and Everyone,

    I am able to modify the dialog's strings by using a resource editor.
    An excellent free one, called ResEdit, is located here: (excellent archive manager...great compression)
    Simply download this, and extract the archive (you will need 7zip to extract),
    then open LdapAdmin.exe in it. You will get a message about include paths, set it if you want or just click 'no'.
    In the left-hand pane, scroll down to 'String Table'. It is here that the relevant strings can be changed. For instance, one could click on 'Ja' in the right-hand column of the screen, and in the left, under 'ID' there is a property called 'String'. Modify it's contents to say 'Yes'. Change all others in the same manner, then 'File', 'Save'.
    That's it!
    Hope that helps.

    Hi Keith,

    thanks for this info, this translation tool looks really good. However, I think that this won't be neccessary any more since I found a way around this problem. In next release the strings should be in English (most of them at least ;-)). Still, this could be a way for those users who want to translate LdapAdmin to other languages.
