[UWP]Are any tools for automatic strings resource generation? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Not sure if I have missed something obvious. When I develop UWP application, I have to manually add x:uid to a control and also manually add a corresponding entry to Strings\resources.resw. This is quite tedious and error prone.

    Do I miss something in Visual Studio? If VS does not provide helpful functions to automate this process, are there any 3rd party tools for this purpose?

    Ignorance is blissful

  • Hi,

    Well, I'm not sure if there is such a tool that could automatically add x:uid to a control and add corresponding entry to Strings\resources.resw. But I suggest that you may try to search for some third party Extensions to do this in the MarketPlace For Visual Studio.

    Best regards,
