Use VS string resources in XAML

Ribbon for WPF Forum

Hi, I was able to create a ribbon button with the follwing line...
<ribbon:Button Label="Open" Command="MyAppCommands.Open"/>

Now I am trying to use the VS's string resources feature (Resources.resx) to replace the Label (for the localization purpose). I replaced the above code with the following line...
<ribbon:Button Label="{x:Static properties:Resources.MyOpenString}" Command="MyAppCommands.Open"/>
But then I got this error...
"Unknown build error, 'Key cannot be null, Parameter name: key Line xx Position xx.'"

Can I refer the resource in the XAML like that? Any idea?

Hi Maggie,

That error probably means that your "properties" xmlns isn't defined.

Oops.. yes, thank you!
The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 3 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
