Adding resources to an assembly

Is it possible, with the use of code, to add a resource to an assembly? Perhaps
using the ResourceWriter ? Basiclly I want to do the equivalent of adding a file
to my project and making it an "embedded resource", but with the help of code
on another assembly.

OK, for a number of reasons I have needed to begin experimenting with resources sooner than I had planned (I had avoided it for now). Step 1: I built the 'reseditor' application that is in the SDK sub-directory, as instructed by the MSDN. Step 2: I used the 'reseditor' to create a file named "MyResources.resources" that contains only some string resources. Step 3: I added this resource file to my existing test assembly (does not do

This message is probably out of topic but I get no response from the less popular microsoft.public.dotnet.general newsgroup. Is there a resource manager of some sort in VS C# .NET which you can use to add resources such as icons, textfiles, etc. ? AS far as I see it, pictures can only be added through the properties of controls such as "BackgroundImage". I opened up the resource view and it is always blank. I tried creating a .RESX file...

Is there any way to add an embedded resource to a project without copying it to the project's directory? I have shared resources and don't want each project using the images, xml files, etc. to need to be updated with the current copy before being built. I also don't want projects being built with the old copy. Thanks! Bill

Hello, I have a Windows Application that needs to load multiple image files in response to users clicking buttons. Currently, I just have these images as .jpg files on disk, but I don't want to have to migrate the files everywhere that the executable is installed. Is there a way to add them to a Visual Studio solution/project so that they are embedded in the application somehow? If so, how do I access the images when needed? Thanks,...

I've authored a custom web component (a non-ui component kinda like a DataSet) and so far it's working. When my web component is added to the web form in the designer from the toolbox, the namespace for my component is automatically added to the using directive of the codebehind. And, the appropriate assembly is added to the "References" for the Web form's project. However, my custom component has a field (initialized to null, and...

Hello, I'm working on a large solution, comprised on numerous Projects, and I would like to have one central projects that contains a set of global RESX Resources. It doesn't make sense to have various resources (strings, images, etc...) scattered through the application; having them all in one central area will be a huge boon. The problem that I'm running into is being able to access these resources from external assemblies. I have...

Hello .NET Sages, Question. What is the meaning of adding say, an XML file to a project, next to a .CS file (not that it matters). Does that mean the XML file becomes a part of the compiled assembly and I'll be able to refer to it from another application that'll open up and use this assembly? As you understand, this is my purpose. I'd like to have an assembly that

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Dear forum friends, With the development of smart home technology, a variety of wireless communication protocols have appeared on the market, such as Zigbee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc. Each protocol has its own unique characteristics and advantages, but as a user who is planning to build a smart home system, I am a bit confused by the choice of these technologies.

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
