_Layout resx file

JStus 41 Reputation points

I have simple MVC app
In my _layout I would like to display

@azzedinehtmlsql .ActionLink( SomeValue, "Index", "Home")

where some value will display text in specified language(possibly from model file). So I learned how to use .resx files for different languages, but how can I use it in Layout file?

Let's say I have a model file that has

[Display(Name="SomeValue", ResourceType = typeof(Company))]
public string SomeValue{get;set;}

and I have to Company files Company.resx and Company.Fr.resx

    Hi @JStus ,
    First you need to put Company.resx and Company.Fr.resx in the Resources folder, then add the reference of the Resource project to the Web project.

    In _Layout.cshtml, add a using statement at the top of the page:

    @using mvcdemo1.Resources  

    Then replace the string that needs to be replaced:

       @Html.ActionLink(Company.SomeValue, "Index", "Home", new { area = "" }, new { @class = "navbar-brand" })  

    Best regards,
    Lan Huang
