Localized resources aren’t available

By | January 21, 2021

Sage 300 provides an SDK using which a developer can customize an existing OCX screen. This feature is most important as most of the user needs some kind of changes in the screen to automate the process and increase the productivity by reducing the user intervention wherever unnecessary. So, customizing an OCX screen also requires a supporting language resource DLL to be generated.

New Stuff:  Disable Maximize Box in OCX

There are more chances where a developer misses a minor change that is required to generate a language resource DLL. We have demonstrated below, the error message that occurs when opening an OCX screen from the sage 300 desktop.

Localized resource not available

Below is the Code snippet for generating the English Language resource DLL:

  1. Project “AccpacOE9901ENG.vbp” is used to generate the English Language resource DLL.
  2. In our example we have Sage 300 v2020 (67A) installation and also have built an OCX and a DLL for Sage 300 v2020 (67A).
  3. The error occurs when opening the screen due to version mismatch as we have missed to change the value of constant variable “ACCPACAppVersion” to “67A” available in file “ACCPACUIGlobals.bas”.

So, developer can use the above code snippet to make sure that they use the proper version when customizing an OCX.
