Library Usage

Referencing Localization.AspNetCore.TagHelpers

The first thing you must to do make the tag helpers available to be used is to add the necessary addTagHelper method in your view file.

This can be done in two ways:

  1. Adding the necessary addTagHelper in every view file that you need to use the provided helpers.
  2. Create a common _ViewImports.cshtml file where you have the necessary addTagHelper method.

The following addTagHelper method can be used to add the helpers in one of the ways you decide:

@addTagHelper *, Localization.AspNetCore.TagHelpers

We also recommend adding a using statement for the Localization.AspNetCore.TagHelpers namespace as that is where all tag helpers and their options are located.

See Available helper for more information on which tag helpers can be used to localize content.

Setting Global Options

To override the default options you can add the following to Startup.cs in the ConfigureServices method:

services.Configure<LocalizeTagHelperOptions>(options =>
  options.NewLineHandling = NewLineHandling.Unix,
  options.TrimWhitespace = false

See the API Documentation for options that can be globally overridden.
