Thank you, but I spent about 4h for this article and didn't get any result.

I think it has to be 2-3 lines in zul page for get acces to my bundle *.properties files. But I dont know how to read properties files in ZUL, I see only reading TLD files...
When I try to read properties file, i get error:
org.zkoss.lang.SystemException: org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Content is not allowed in prolog.

I think your problem is in your properties file, perhaps?

Ok I write my questions in other manner
1) What format of property files ZK use (properties or XML)?
2) Where I have to save my properties files (under /WEB-INF or classes directories)?
3) Where I have to write name and path for my properties files on ZUL page?
In documentation I don't see answers... so I ask any example.

Search the forum you will found answers.

1) properties
2) In \WEB-INF\i3-label.properties + \WEB-INF\i3-label_pt_PT.properties + etc
3) What about an zul example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<?taglib uri="http://www.zkoss.org/dsp/web/core" prefix="c" ?>
<?evaluator name="mvel"?>
<?page title=".:: VIC ::."?>

<window width="99%" 
	xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.zkoss.org/2005/zul http://www.zkoss.org/2005/zul/zul.xsd">
	<zk:label value="${Labels.getLabel('username')}:" />


I am using MVEL so you will need MVEL jar in your classpath.

What about in java source code:
import org.zkoss.util.resource.Labels;


BONUS: You could use properties like copyright.year=2005-2008

Hope it helped you.

Very nice ! Thank you, sousa1981

1) I put "i3-label_*_*.properties" files in WEB-INF.
2) I used next code in zul page:

<?taglib uri="http://www.zkoss.org/dsp/web/core" prefix="c" ?>
<button tooltiptext="${c:l('windowMain.questionnaire_tooltiptext')}" />

All work perfect !

Also I tryed use MVEL, as you write above

<?taglib uri="http://www.zkoss.org/dsp/web/core" prefix="c" ?>
<?evaluator name="mvel"?>
<button tooltiptext="${Labels.getLabel('windowMain.questionnaire_tooltiptext')}" />

It works too.

You helped me, thank you very much !
