I am attempting to define some of the custom properties in my .NET translation project as tooltips. I am able to bring up the Third-Party and Custom Types dialog and can select "tooltip" from the Resource type: list box, but the Apply button never activates and my change is not applied if I select OK.

1. This is correct- the "Apply" button is never active.
The settings are saved when the dialog box is closed with the "OK" button.

2. Make sure the project defintion file (*.rwtproject) is not write-protected.
This could be the reason why your changes weren't saved.

3. Note: Custom .NET properties are saved per project (in the .rwtproject file)
since version 9.0.3.1 of RC-WinTrans (July 2010). Before this the settings
were saved globally (for all projects).

The project file is not write-protected. In fact, by inspecting the .rwtproject file I see that the [DOTNET_USERTYPES] section is being updated. I have the line "Hint=tooltip", which is consistent with the change I made in the dialog. However, this does not appear to actually do anything. All of the .Hint entries in the project still show up as type "Unknown/Non-Text" (and consequently do not show up in the "All Data with Text" view), and re-opening the dialog shows that the change is not persisted.

There could be a problem when a property name contains a period (name1.name2.name3)- maybe.
Can you send us the translation database (.fsmdb file) so we can check this?
Please send it to support@schaudin.com (subject: "Custom Properties").

I found that I am able to change the type successfully if the project uses a .fsmdb file for data storage. It does not work if the project uses .rwtxlf files for data storage. This is a problem for me, since I exclusively use the XML-based storage method for all of my projects. This should be easy to verify on your end, but let me know if you still need me to send my project.

You are right- it happens for translation projects that use XML data files (.rwtxlf).

We will fix this for the next update of the RC-WinTrans software in June (Build Version 9.1.1.0).

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
