Thanks very much for thta really good hint. Now it works really fine. 
The point was that I didn't know exactly that I really can combine a select control with a toggle.

Greetings Roman, the event you want is xforms-select, see 4.4.4 The xforms-select and xforms-deselect Events [ http://www.w3.org/TR/xforms/slice4.html#evt-select ] 

<xforms:toggle case="en" ev:event="xforms-select"/> 

There are other ways to internationalise forms, see 8.3 Additional Elements [ http://www.w3.org/TR/xforms/slice8.html#ui-commonelems ]

Regards, Roland

Hello Sirs,

While I am writing my thesis statement, I want to develop an XForms File, which is able to create XML Topic Maps.
So I rather soon came up with some questions.
I would like to implement a mechanism for choosing the language of the displayed form labels. I thought that a <select1> will do it (I didn't want this mechanism to appear as a button).

The problem now is that I don't know how to combine my <select1> with a <toggle> element, which should switch between two <case>s.
How can I achieve that? I wrote something like:

<xforms:select1 appearance="compact">
<xforms:hint>Wählen Sie hier die Sprache der Formularfeldbeschriftungen</xforms:hint>
<xforms:label>Deutsch / German</xforms:label>
<xforms:toggle case="de" ev:event="xforms-activate"/> 
<xforms:label>Englisch / English</xforms:label>
<xforms:toggle case="en" ev:event="xforms-activate"/> 

But I don't think that it works. A very important point is that I don't want the exact values of each item to appear in my document instance. So it gets a bit more complicated.
Can you please help me on that?
