Hi @jakshire01. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Sure, you can create a Header component that allows you to change the language. Here is an example of how you can do this:
import { DownOutlined } from "@ant-design/icons";
import { useGetLocale, useSetLocale } from "@refinedev/core";
import { Avatar, Button, Dropdown, Layout, Menu, Space } from "antd";
import { useTranslation } from "react-i18next";

export const Header: React.FC = () => {
const { i18n } = useTranslation();
const locale = useGetLocale();
const changeLanguage = useSetLocale();

const currentLocale = locale();

const menu = (
<Menu selectedKeys={currentLocale ? [currentLocale] : []}>
{[...(i18n.languages || [])].sort().map((lang: string) => (
<Menu.Item
key={lang}
onClick={() => changeLanguage(lang)}
icon={
<span style={{ marginRight: 8 }}>
<Avatar size={16} src={`/images/flags/${lang}.svg`} />
</span>
}
>
{lang === "en" ? "English" : "German"}
</Menu.Item>
))}
</Menu>
);

return (
<Layout.Header
style={{
display: "flex",
justifyContent: "flex-end",
alignItems: "center",
padding: "0px 24px",
height: "48px",
backgroundColor: "#FFF",
}}
>
<Dropdown overlay={menu}>
<Button type="link">
<Space>
<Avatar size={16} src={`/images/flags/${currentLocale}.svg`} />
{currentLocale === "en" ? "English" : "German"}
<DownOutlined />
</Space>
</Button>
</Dropdown>
</Layout.Header>
);
};
import { DownOutlined } from "@ant-design/icons";
import { useGetLocale, useSetLocale } from "@refinedev/core";
import { Avatar, Button, Dropdown, Layout, Menu, Space } from "antd";
import { useTranslation } from "react-i18next";

export const Header: React.FC = () => {
const { i18n } = useTranslation();
const locale = useGetLocale();
const changeLanguage = useSetLocale();

const currentLocale = locale();

const menu = (
<Menu selectedKeys={currentLocale ? [currentLocale] : []}>
{[...(i18n.languages || [])].sort().map((lang: string) => (
<Menu.Item
key={lang}
onClick={() => changeLanguage(lang)}
icon={
<span style={{ marginRight: 8 }}>
<Avatar size={16} src={`/images/flags/${lang}.svg`} />
</span>
}
>
{lang === "en" ? "English" : "German"}
</Menu.Item>
))}
</Menu>
);

return (
<Layout.Header
style={{
display: "flex",
justifyContent: "flex-end",
alignItems: "center",
padding: "0px 24px",
height: "48px",
backgroundColor: "#FFF",
}}
>
<Dropdown overlay={menu}>
<Button type="link">
<Space>
<Avatar size={16} src={`/images/flags/${currentLocale}.svg`} />
{currentLocale === "en" ? "English" : "German"}
<DownOutlined />
</Space>
</Button>
</Dropdown>
</Layout.Header>
);
};
This code creates a dropdown menu in the header with the available languages. When a language is selected, the changeLanguage function is called to change the current language. You can then use this Header component in your main App component like this:
import { Refine, Resource } from "@refinedev/core";
import { ThemedLayoutV2 } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { useTranslation } from "react-i18next";
import "./i18n";
import { Header } from "components";

const App: React.FC = () => {
const { t, i18n } = useTranslation();
const i18nProvider = {
translate: (key: string, options?: any) => t(key, options),
changeLocale: (lang: string) => i18n.changeLanguage(lang),
getLocale: () => i18n.language,
};

return (
<Refine
i18nProvider={i18nProvider}
/* ... */
>
<ThemedLayoutV2
header={<Header />}
>
{/* ... */}
</ThemedLayoutV2>
</Refine>
);
};
import { Refine, Resource } from "@refinedev/core";
import { ThemedLayoutV2 } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { useTranslation } from "react-i18next";
import "./i18n";
import { Header } from "components";

const App: React.FC = () => {
const { t, i18n } = useTranslation();
const i18nProvider = {
translate: (key: string, options?: any) => t(key, options),
changeLocale: (lang: string) => i18n.changeLanguage(lang),
getLocale: () => i18n.language,
};

return (
<Refine
i18nProvider={i18nProvider}
/* ... */
>
<ThemedLayoutV2
header={<Header />}
>
{/* ... */}
</ThemedLayoutV2>
</Refine>
);
};
This code sets up the i18n provider and passes the Header component to the ThemedLayoutV2 component.
