Not applicable.

Parameters

className

A string representing a ClassKey.

A string representing a ResourceKey.

Return Value

An object representing the requested resource object; otherwise, a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Application-level resources are stored in the App_GlobalResources folder. For more information, see Resources in ASP.NET Applications.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the GetGlobalResourceObject method to access a string named GlobalResourceString1 from a global resource named MyResource.resx in the App_GlobalResources folder. The className parameter is MyResource without the .resx extension.
