How to implement the "message catalog" in a metro DLL? RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the suggested method for implementing a “Message Catalog” in a Metro DLL?  We currently use we the mc and rc tools to create the message catalog and the Win32 APIs LoadLibrary, FormatMessage, GetThreadLocale at run-time.

  • Hi Devinder,

    According to your description, I'd like to move this thread to Building Metro style apps with C++ Forum for better support.

    Thanks for your understanding.
    Best regards,

  • LoadPackagedLibrary is the closest equivalent to LoadLibrary for Metro style apps.

    Win32 resources including message catalogs are not supported for Metro style apps.   The Application Resources and Localization sample covers the use of the Metro resource management system.
