    Hi everybody,

    In my app I need to do something which is conceptually very similar to the tableview editing->delete functionality which is built in to UITableView. The functionality of swiping followed by a button appearing next to the swiped row is ideal, but the text on the delete button is misleading for my purposes (what I'm doing is more similar to archiving).

    What are my options for changing the text on this button to make it's purpose more clear in my app?

    The most feasible one I've come up with so far is to localize the app and change the string there somehow, but I haven't been able to find much documentation on this at all.

    So A) does anybody have a better idea of how to do this?

    And B) if localizing my app really is the best way, could somebody please point me in the direction of some documentation on how to go about it?

    I've got the same need. Has anyone identified whether this is possible (i.e., to rename the Delete button)?
