Global resources become non-editable after compile, workaround? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User828841783 posted

    Whilst I realise the benefits of compiling gloabl resources into DLL files, this does not suit my needs. I require editability in my distribution so that end-users can change the text throughout the application and even add extra languages; however the core code of the application must be compiled. I know that local resource files remain editable, which is great, but it still leaves problems with application-wide text - I really don't want to translate the same pieces of text in every local resource. I am using multiple master pages, so many application-wide bits of text can be placed in the local resources for the master files, however this still results in repetition between the master file local resources.

    Is there any way to attach an extra local resource file programmatically, ie. I have a local resource file names ApplicationWide.resx (plus language derivatives) which I attach to every master page (or detail page using a BasePage class)?

    Any other ideas also welcome!
