read resources on sharepoint site

Dear Experts,
I have a sharepoint solution which should install on some web applications on sharepoint farm.
I want my app to read some values , such as an string value depend on my wep app.
For Example :
I deploy my solution to ports 80, 81.
I want my features on port 80 to show 'first string', and on port 81 show 'the second string'
I want them to change based on a file value, like resources or smth.....

Hi!

You can create a resource file e.g. MyResources.resx and put it in inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\[portnumber]\App_GlobalResources. Then you can read values in page markup like following:
<SharePoint:EncodedLiteral ID="EncodedLiteral1" runat="server" text="<%$Resources:MyResources, MyString_Value%>" EncodeMethod='HtmlEncode'/>

It's just like for other asp.net applications: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms227427.aspx

Dear ivan,
Thanks for reply. I've read some examples of how to work within resources in sharepoint, but non of them worked for me.:(
The problem is: how to store my resource in App_GlobalResources and how can I read from it.:(

Sure, I'll try to help you. What do you mean by "read resource"? Read from code? Or paste resource string in page markup of something else?
Storing is very simple just create resource file in Visual Studio (resx file) and copy to App_GlobalResources folder.
