I'm wondering how to retrieve the strings of the resx files from the Razor View

<li>@Html.ActionLink("Contact", "Contact", "Home")</li>

Open in new window


I'm triying to call the resx file and retrieve the corresponding string this way:

<li>@Html.ActionLink([namespace.resourcefolder], "Contact", "Home")</li>

Open in new window


but I don't see the App_LocalResources in the Intellisense list after namespace

There is no much specific information about this on the internet

Thank you, I have read that article before.

I found this way easier ASP.NET 4 MVC 5 Multi language web-application  however I cannot manage neither calling a custom folder named "Resources" containing  the resx files nor an ASP.NET special folder "App_GlobalResources"

If I create a project from scratch I manage to call the resx files with no issues but then I continue creating other classes and loss all links to these files getting this error: The name 'Resources' does not exist in the current context

Will try this as well and test:

Bringing in Resource Files
Resource files as we all know are xml files with .resx extension and have a dedicated designer to manipulate them in Visual Studio.

Now in the olden days, one would drop resource files in the App_LocalResources folder. However that prevents you from sharing Resources in the Domain layer for example. To avoid this scenario, we add a new Class Library project to our MVC solution and add a new Resource file to it.
