Move String(s) from File(s), Folder(s) or Project

Select File(s), Folder(s) or Project in "Solution Explorer" and call "Refactor This"(Ctrl+Shift+R) to start refactoring.

Choose strings from selected project for refactoring.

Choose resource file and key(s) for the selected string(s).

You can undo changes.

Rename Resource

Move cursor to the resource wrapper usage and call "Rename "(F2) to start refactoring and type a new name.

SafeResx - Strongly Typed Resource Generators

Now you can generate safer code for your resources.

Features

  • Add a comment for the resource line by using comment XML tag.
  • Generated class has public modifier, which allows you to create shared resources between assemblies.
  • For formatting, string generates typed methods for calling String.Format.

Use one of the following custom tools to get safer code:

  • SharedSafeResx - Generates shared resource wrapper, which allows you to use resources in referenced assemblies.
  • PrivateSafeResx - Use this generator to create private project resources.
