Embedded resources and extended namespaces

Hi there!

I did not know, where this topic fits in, so I put it here.

I have a minor problem with embedded resources, which puzzles me quite a
lot. I'd be glad if anyone can help me on this:

I've added a few files (images) to an assembly as embedded resources.
Within the project folder these files are in a subfolder named "images".

Now while trying to access them I expected to get them this way:
RootNameSpace.N ameOfSubfolder. FileName
i.e.:
NameSpaceOfMyPr oject.Images.My Image.jpg

This is how it is explained in here:
Understanding Embedded Resources in Visual Studio .NET
http://www.codeproject.com/dotnet/embeddedresources.asp
But what I experience under VB.NET, ist that it is not possible to organize
embedded resources this way - meaning: the name space won't extend by the
name of the subfolder.

It's just this way:
RootNameSpace.F ileName
i.e.:
NameSpaceOfMyPr oject.MyImage.j pg

This behavoir fits more to what is discribed this article:
How to Embed Resource Files in .NET Assemblies (cont'd)
http://www.devx.com/dotnet/Article/10831/0/page/2

Ok, so far you'd might think, that one of the authors is wrong.
But the answer is: No, they both seem to be right!

I have downloaded and tried a C#-example from Eric Woodroff:
A Resource Server Handler Class For Custom Controls
http://www.codeproject.com/useritems...edded%7Cresour
ce

As you can see there, the namespace extends, as expected first.

This drives me nuts!!!
*bangingheadtow all*
;-)

Is there a difference how VB.NET and C# handle embedded Resources?
Did I forget to configuere something?
Did I misunderstand something?

Please help me - otherwise I go crazy and won't come back!! ;-)

Thanx!

(P.S.: Actually this is kind of a crossposting. I posted this subject last
week in microsoft.publi c.dotnet.framew ork.aspnet.buil dingcontrols and was
probably kind of offtopic there, since no one answered. Sorry for that!)

I have a question regarding embedded controls in IE. We are looking to replace a small VB ActiveX control with something written in C#. We have written the control and it instantiates correctly in IE using the <object> tag. My question is this. When the browser visits the pages and requests the object from the server, it appears to be making many unnecessary requests for configuration files and resources files as well. I am using the...

I have an assembly (AppResources.dll) which contains a number of embedded resource files. Most of these are key/value pairs of relevant strings; a few are images and sounds; some more are XML files. My application will load the resources into memory as they are needed. I would like to be able to read and write to these embedded resources. Is it possible to write to an embedded resource within an assembly? If so, how? If it's not...

If I embed a resource with filename "test_cs.xslt" in my c# project, Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly.GetManifestResourceNames works as expected. If I change the filename to "test.cs.xslt" I get 0 items. Is there a good reason for this behaviour or is it a bug?

Is there any way to add an embedded resource to a project without copying it to the project's directory? I have shared resources and don't want each project using the images, xml files, etc. to need to be updated with the current copy before being built. I also don't want projects being built with the old copy. Thanks! Bill

I have a project where I need to create a windows .exe by compiling code and linking in some resources. This program thats being generated is somewhat unconventional, and I'll explain how. I'm generating a very simple installer app that embeds referenced .dll files inside it, which are extracted and referenced when the installer app is executed. This works great when the installer app is built with Visual Studio .NET, but it does not work...

I'm having trouble grasping how ASP.NET correctly locates resources. There is plenty of documentation on this subject but some things are not clear at all. In my ASP.NET application, I have multiple web forms. When you compile the application, it creates a DLL. If you view this DLL using ILDASM (the manifest), it shows info about the resources stored in the DLL. There is essentially an embedded resource "section" for each web form. The...

In an ASP.NET project I am setting the content type of my .ascx and ..aspx files to Embedded Resource for a separate reason. When I do this they get embedded as "RootNamespace.Filename" but I would like them to be embedded as "RootNamespace.Folder.Filename". I see that the .resources files are embedded with the containing folder information in the namespace, and I think c# projects work this way, too. Is there any way (a vbc command...

Hello All, I'm getting into nHibernate for a project at work. I've organized my xml files into a folder within the project and have chosen to embed them into the assembly. However, the nHIbernate framework cannot find the xml files because they are in the "folder". Could someone explain how namespaces and folders work with the compiler? Or could offer any tips? Many thanks to all, Patrick
