In my application I have to use XML for some Sharepoint ribbon definition.
This is all working fine but the XML is in Strings.
I found it difficult to maintain and read XML in strings, I would like to use xml files and convert those file to string at runtime.
How can I use xml files in the project to be used as string??
Also I don't want those file to be deployed, I just need to use those files within the project.
I've tried to put those files in a resource file and use something like that:
Dim a As String = My.Resources.Resource.mainTab (mainTab is an XML file in resources.resx)
But this implied a deployment to sharepoint resources and anyway it doesn't work.
Any help appreciated.
