How can I get the Root Namespace programatically of my assembly?

I'm trying to use a Resource Manager object to get localized string from a resource file, but I have to specify the root namespace in the constructor of the Resource manager.

I assume you mean "root type" or "root assembly". The resource manager does not need a reference to the root namespace, instead, it needs a reference to a Type that it can use to locate the *.resources file inside the loaded assembly. In other words, it depends on what typename you used to "bind" the resource to the type and that Type is the one you should use in the constructor.

However, if you have a Resources.resx file in your WinForms application, it is actually much easier to let Visual Studio take care of everything for you. Simply use the following statement to get something from your resources:

Bitmap myPicture = Properties.Resources.MyPicture1;
Or use the following to get the ResourceManager that is currently associated to your default resources:

ResourceManager resMgr = Properties.Resources.ResourceManager;
