    How to make localizations on current custom command labels? for example “on change” language change that command menu.

      Resco provides support for localization to translate the labels of the custom commands for particular language. You need to add Label in the specific language in the Localization tab of the Resco Woodford, so when user change the language of the Mobile app it displays the custom command labels in that language.

        thanks for reply. Already done it adding the new localizations in each language using label as a id “Cmd.DoSomething”. Now im stuck on another customization.
        I have view and it has some detailed views like info, general, inventory. In inventory view i have list of elements and on each element i added custom button. By pushing this button i want to add this element to general view. What should I do? i tried offline html by adding script onCommand but even cant get alert on pushing that button.
