Create resx with model properties

Post by figueiredorj » Wed 02 Dec 2015 15:45

Hi,

for our application with are making it bilingue - supporting many languages.

Right now we are doing a tedious task which is transpose all properties in model for a resx where after it there is a tool we use to make translations.

Would it be possible to generate a resx file from T4 of dbcontext with name of entity and all it's properties?
How would I accomplish it?

Any help appretiated

You can try using this template:

  // Settings
  string baseFileName = model.FileName;
 
  foreach (var cls in model.Classes) {
    string rootFileName = cls.Name;
    output.Extension = ".resx";
    output.PushOutputRedirection(Output, "", rootFileName, OverwriteMode.Overwrite, BuildAction.EmbeddedResource, CopyToOutputDirectory.DoNotCopy, "ResXFileCodeGenerator", "");

JIC: this sample shows a simple way to implement such scenario, you can modify and extend it in the way, that is most suitable for you.

Please tell us if this helps.
