VS2005 C# and Resources

bob
Hi,
I am having trouble with Resources of a windows app.
If I understand correctly.
1) New C# Windows app. Namespace 'TestResources'
2) Edit default Resources file, set String1 value to say "MyApp"
3) Put the following code in ctor after InitializeCompo nent
ResourceManager rm = new ResourceManager ("Resources" ,
Assembly.GetExe cutingAssembly( ));

String s = rm.GetString("S tring1");///BREAKS HERE///

MessageBox.Show (s);

It breaks with a MissingManifest ResourceExcepti on

Am I missing a setting ?

Thanks

Bob

VS2005 produces typesafe access to your resources, at least if you use the
default editors. Try Resources.Strin g1.

Hi,
Thanks ,
You put me on the right track.
Intellisense access to the default Resources is a fully formed name starting
at project Level.
(Project TestResources)
String s =TestResources. Properties.Reso urces.String1;
Is that little pearl of wisdom documented anywhere?
Are you told that you need "using TestResources.P roperties" to make
reasonable use of the Resources object?
Nooo you are not.
Documentation in this area is inadequate in my opinion.

Thanks again for your help.
Bob

This question has been posted before, but without any response so therefore I'm trying once more.

I have a vs2003 solution that I want to convert to VS2005 format. These projects have been converted and now compile in VS2005. But they had the older format - they is the UI code was in .vb rather than in .Designer.vb. To fix a project file I'd create a .designer.vb file and move code from .vb to it. I also had to change the .vbproj file

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,...

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.
