Modifying the Resources Files from Code behind? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-220297608 posted

    hi all,

     i have a Webproject that is developed using ASP.Net 2.0 and i am using Localization for it using a Global resource file.
     my question is: i want to change the values of the Resource files .resx programmatically from the code behind file, i don't want to go the the .resx file manually and look for the string i want to change then change it by hand. because my project is hosted on a web server and it takes a long time to download the file (.resx) , change it and then upload it again. its better if i just made a page in the administrator menu to directly change the resources i want.


    Thanky you for your time,

    you can use the ResXResourceWriter in the System.Resources namespace.

    thank you for your reply but there is another problem, the resxresourcewriter writes a new file to the application, it doesnot modify the existing one.

    so is there a way to use it to modify an already existing resource file

    What resource files conatin are just xml formatted name/value pairs. So, why not just try open it as an XmlDocument and modify?
