Return Value

The name of the generated intermediate .resources file.


Designers require the value of ResourceFileName to use the following format: <RootNamespace>.<ClassName>.Resources, where <RootNamespace> is the root namespace for the project and <ClassName> is the name of the class in the associated form file. If the resources are localized, then the locale needs to be part of the name as well. For example, French resources would use <RootNamespace>.<ClassName>.fr.resources.
