VS2005 C# Resource woes continued.

Bob
Hi,
My app is now successfully accessing the default Resources.resx.
I have made a Resources.fr-FR.resx
yet ..
#if (French)

Thread.CurrentT hread.CurrentUI Culture = new CultureInfo("fr-FR",
false);//Definitely being executed

Thread.CurrentT hread.CurrentCu lture = new CultureInfo("fr-FR", false);

#endif

this.Text = Resources.Strin g1;

Is giving the String1 out of the default Resources file.

In a fit of desperation I translated the project into VB and this 'logic'
works fine.

Any suggestions as to why this doesn't work in C#?

My Initial feeling is that it is because the default resources are sitting
under properties.

ie. The full access path is Projectname.pro perties.Resourc es ( I have a
'using Projectname.pro perties' statement in the class header)

The added Resource file Resources.fr-FR is sitting under the project
directly seeing thats where the IDE places them

So it seems to me that the project probably can't see Resources.fr-FR so it
falls back to the default.

If this is case how can you get exta language resource files to be easily
seen?

If this is not the problem then any clues as to what is the problem would be
appreciated.

(Form localizable property is true) language set to Default and
French(France) have both been tried.

Thanks

Bob

Is it me or has anyone noticed that F1 is really dumb in VS2005. Since VB3 I have been able to click F1 on an ambiguous method in code and the IDE automatically determines the type based on the code itself and shows the right help topic. This even worked more or less in VS2003. But in VS2005, if I highlight the "Host" method below and hit F1 I get a help topic on the "UriBuilder.Host" property. Huh????? That's dumb. Dim o as New...

I originally posted this in microsoft.public.xml ... my apologies to those to who read both groups ... Someone please tell me if I'm missing something here. The XML Comment generator in VS2005 seems to be woefully incomplete. I created a test solution with 2 classes in different namespaces XTest.Derived.DerivedClass XTest.Base.BaseClass

Hello, I posted this in the C# group but thought maybe the better place would be here since it is happening with website projects so please forgive any cross posting. In my website projects I can set a breakpoint, run the app, the breakpoint gets hit, and I can step through or check some variables or what not, and if I hit stop it appears that the rest of the method (and any calling method) continues to execute. I know this because...

This question has been posted before, but without any response so therefore I'm trying once more. I'm trying to embed .resource files into a Windows application in VS2005, and then compile and run the program from VS2005. This does not work because the debugger seems not find the resource files, and I keep getting the following error: "MissingManifestResourceException:

(I know this is a great big newsgroup no-no, but I originally only posted to microsoft.public.dotnet.general and that newsgroup doesn't seem to have near the readership of these - so I thought I'd also post this info here for the benefit of the greater dotnet programming community.) Well, after looking at this list, I'm thinking of staying with XP/VS2005 for a while longer. At least until SP2 is out and Vista has been burped a few...

Hi all, This post is sort of tangentially related to my earlier posts on configuration files for DLLs. Does anyone know how to create typed DataSets using VS2005's new DataSet designer, but with the ability to configure the connection string via a config file? The designer seems to hard-code the connection string into the dataset itself, which just can't be right.

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,...

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.
