winforms and .resx files - 1.1 - $ appearing and .resx not linked?

P: n/a
Working on a handed off C# project and pretty much my third time dipping into
C#. In my solution file, I have a collection of .resx files in their own
folder, several .cs files, and my winforms .cs files. From what I understand
the .resx files house embedded resources, such as images and buttons texts.
When I open up my winforms however there is nothing there!

When I open up my winforms code behind, I see code such as:

this.$ = new Button();

and from what I am used to seeing it is supposed to be:

this.button1 = new System.Windows.Forms.Button();

Nothing is appearing on the form, it looks like the run of the mill blank
one when you create a new winforms project. The .resx files are in another
folder, so I try to replace those and still nothing appears on the form, the
..resx files before I replaced them were blank.

My question is, I believe that the link between the .resx and winforms file
is "lost" per se, because it doesn't have the programmtic name for the
buttons, text boxes etc. and looks like they have been replaced by a $ sign.

I might be completly wrong so am just looking for any advice. Any links to
tut's on the subject would be appreciated as well.

Thanks for looking, and TIA for any responses.
