These functions are used to localize an attribute value of a (possibly custom) ISML tag. For that purpose localizeTextEx() returns the plain text behind a given language neutral key.

2 Syntax

The following variations of the localizeTextEx() function are possible:

localizeTextEx(key : String, ParameterList(params ... : Object)) : String
localizeTextEx(key : String, locale : String, ParameterList(params ... : Object)) : String
localizeTextEx(key : String, locale : String, site : Domain, ParameterList(params ... : Object)) : String

<ISMessageBox message="#localizeTextEx('product.removed.info', ParameterList(Product:sku))#"
  subject="page" type="mdc" okbtnname="#localizeText('button.ok')#" colspan="1">
