Summary: In this video, we will discuss global resources. A local resource
is limited to a page. A global resource, however, can be used on multiple
pages. When you create a global resource you put it under App_GlobalResources
(placed in the root of the application). We will create a simple page that
contains a question (you can think about it as simulating exam questions in
different languages). Then, we change the text property of the label to
reference the global resource. That way
the text we need will show up when we load the page. After that we will add another
Spanish global resource. We change the Page's UICulture to refer to
"es". Now when we load the page, we will get the question in Spanish.
Finally, we will look at the code to retrieve a resource programmatically.
of the development of example: Good coding standard
and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
