    We're using the language selector on our website, and having an odd issue. The spanish language drop down item is not capitalized. Why this is I'm not sure, but it looks very akward. Is there a way to forcibly change the text of the item? Or maybe update the text in the sitefinity administration or database?

    Hi Chris,

    The language titles come from .Net framework and are displayed the way they are by default.
    There is a workaround to change that, using css (with the css widget). You can select the Language Selector control and change the style of the item you want (and apply capital letter to it).

    .someclass
    {
        text-transform:capitalize;
    }


    Another option is using java script widget and jqeury

    $(this).val(value.toUpperCase());

    where you call string.ToUpperCase method of the selected value.


    The third option is a custom widget that inherits from LanguageSelectorControl

    I hope that helps.

    Best wishes,
