Resource File Woes

P: n/a
Hey All,

I'm trying to add a resource file to my app but it's not working.

I have done the following:

-- Added a .resx file
-- Added some strings
-- Named the file "MyStrings.en.resx"
-- Add the file as a resource to the "Project" "Properties" "Resources"
-- Tried to call the strings using:
Dim rm As ResourceManager
rm = New ResourceManager("StringTable", Me.GetType().Assembly)
MessageBox.Show(rm.GetString("String1"))

Clearly I'm missing something. How do these .resx files need to be added in
order to work properly?

I've looked at the documentation online and I don't see it.

Please advise.

Thanks,

TC

Why aren't you using 'My.Resources.*'?

Hey Herfried,

Thanks for the info. Now I see!

I added the strings under the project properties and Voila!, I could call
the data in code via intellisense.

However, the above said, what about all of this stuff:

Dim rm As ResourceManager
rm = New ResourceManager("StringTable", Me.GetType().Assembly)

Message = New StringBuilder()
Message.Append(rm.GetString("String1"))
Message.Append(rm.GetString("String2"))
Where does code like the above come into play?

Regards,

TC
