Based on the article ASP Internationalization, I have created a separate resource file for each locale. I can process all the views and built in code. But how should I process data specified in XML file?

The @Resources.Home doesn't work
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<items>
  <item Text="@Resources.Home" NavigateUrl="~/Home">
    <item Text="@Resources.Dashboard" NavigateUrl="~/Routing/Dashboard"/>
  </item>

</items>

Its actually binding to my menu control.
I came out with a solution to have a xml file for each locale. And then bind the path with a locale helper class.

        public static string GetPath()
        {
            var culture = Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture;
            string letters = culture.TwoLetterISOLanguageName;
            if (String.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(letters))
                return String.Empty;
            return HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath(String.Format("~/App_Data/TopMenu.{0}.xml", letters));

        }

Open in new window


E.g. TopMenu.en.xml, TopMenu.es.xml

.BindToXML(CultureHelper.GetPath(), "/items/*").GetHtml()

Since you can't use @Resource, you would need to find a code solution.  One possible solution would be to use a marker that you can replace with text.

The problem is determining the better approach to replace the resource name with the value (i.e. @Resources.Home with the value from the selected resource file).
