Adding/reading additional attributes to/from Resource files .resx


I'm working with .resx files for a multilanguage application and so far it
has worked
perfectly. However, now I want to add more attributes to the xml schema and
them at running time. ie: I want to programatically generate forms and
their input fields according to the data stored on a resource file. Here is an

NUM_ATTRS: value="4"
ATTR_1: value="Name", required="yes"
ATTR_2: value="Descript ion", required="no"
ATTR_3: value="Price", required="yes"
ATTR_4: value="Referenc e", required="yes"

If you see, I need an extra attribute called "required". I modified the xml
source of
my resource file and add the following line to the "data" section:

<xsd:attribut e name="required" type="xsd:strin g" />

Now, I see the extra column when editing the resx file on visual studio .net
can set a value to it, but I don't know how to read it. I saw the
documentation of
ResourceManager and there are only two methods to get data from the resource
file: GetString and GetObject; however, they only get the value attribute
and if the
object is an image, then it gets the bitmap itself. I also looked for a
solution in
google, but most of the messages I found doesn't give a solution.

The only way I found was to add an extra string called "ATTR_REQUIRED_ n",
where n is a number, and set it to "yes" or "no", but I thing the xml
attributes look
cleaner and more natural. Is possible to do solve this problem with custom xml
attributes? How? Is there perhaps another approach?

Thanks in advanced,

Hello friends, In a large asp.net project, I don't think it is a good idea for having one common resource file containing all localized strings for the whole application.

For example, suppose I have a web form called Items.aspx. I want to have a resource file for it and name it...
