Im trying to localise a button using the resource file using the following code
button.text = resourcefile.submit;
where submit is an entry in the resourcefile. However the resource file dose not exist in the current context. It is in the same project as the module im creating.
As far as I can see I have all my references are set correctly. Am i missing something really stupid.
Thanks for you help in advance
do you have this:
if you don't have that then you would need button.Text = Resources.resourcefile.submit;
Ye I have 'using Resources' but intelisense dose not give me the resource file when i start typing. The resource file is in App_GlobalResources folder in the custom project.
When I tried Resources.resourcefile.submit I still get the same error Error 1 The type or namespace name 'resourcefile' does not exist in the namespace 'Resources' (are you missing an assembly reference?)
Do I need to add a reference to the custom project?
Are you using Visual Studio 2010 or Visual Web Developer Express 2010?
People have reported issues with resource files in Visual Web Developer Express on this thread, I posted workaround that worked for me, but it is much better if you have VS 2010. If you don't have VS 2010, you may qualify to get it free in the Web Site Spark program from Microsoft.
Hope it helps,
