Question: Localizing Images in Visual Studio 2005


I've created a website that is available in both english and italian.

I've gotten the page translated and the text portion works fine.

However, I have a couple images that needed to be translated because they contained some text so I have an english version of the image and an italian version of the image.

How do I go about localizing these images and displaying it on my page based on the browser default language?

I went into my english resource file, then instead of the "strings" view, I went to" images" and simply dragged the english version of the image into this window. I did the same in my italian resource file except I dragged the italian image over.

My question is this... how do I call the image into my .aspx page?

Hi, the quickest and easiest way to do this is to actualy store the images as Global Resources, not local. Take the following action:

  • Create a global resource file as you have local ones, in a global resource folder.
  • Enter the files and type an identifying string such as "HeaderLogo"
  • In the next column enter the url of the image (i.e. I have all project images in my project within a folder called "IMG")
  • Do the same for the other language.
  • Go to your aspx page
  • Place some image tags on your page where you wish to display.
  • For each image, go into its properties and click on "Expressions".
  • A box will appear for your image
  • Find the 'Navigate URL' option
  • Set the 'ClassKey' to the name of your resource file (just the text, no file extension or text you have specified a language with E.G page: resource.hi-IN.resx become resource).
  • For the resource key, this will be the entry text you placed in the resource file ("HeaderLogo")

Thats it, done. Let me know if it works.

Running Visual Studio .NET 2003 and Visual Studio 2005 on the same machine.
Hi there,   I have many projects i develop and continue to maintain on my server. Visual Studio .NET 2003 is currently installed and is what i use to do this. I'd really like to install Visual Studio 2005 and give that a whirl on the same machine, and perhaps develop upcoming sites with it also.I understand that upon installation of VS 2005 it will install the 2.0 Framework. Will this effect my 1.1 sites at all? Does the 2.0 Framework upgrade the 1.1 framework, or does it leave the 1.1 framework intact so older projects can still use it?Any advice would be welcome! :)Thanks,Cr...

Visual Web Developer Express 2005 and Visual Studio .Net 2005
I have Visual Studio .NET installed and have purchased a textbook for learning that uses examples, cases, and projects which reference use of Visual Web Developer Express 2005 (VWD). I have discovered that there are some nuances of differences between the Web UI in Visual Studio .Net 2005 and VWD. Therefore, I want to install VWD. I downloaded VWD and started to install it but stopped as I noticed the intallation as about to copy all it's files into the same directory the contained Visual Studio. I'm scared I'm going to screw up my Visual Studio installation, so I thought I&...

Autos, Locals in VB.NET/Visual Studio
There may be a more appropriate forum to ask this, but I figure since the only time I am really dealing with VB.NET is in DNN, I'd ask here. I have been making a C# module and everything is going smoothly. But in working with VB.NET code in Debug mode, I keep having a problem. In the Locals, and Autos windows when I am debuging something in C#, I can drill down and see the properties of the particular object and see its bases and so on. When I am in VB.NET code, I can't drill down any object. I can access particular properties by using the command window, and printing them ,but it...
