I am trying to localize a sandboxed visual webpart (part of the SP2010 development powertools released by MS), but as soon as I add


to for instance a label's Text property, the generated file (webpartname.ascx.g.cs) with the ascx's contents as actual C# code is cleared, as in completely empty!

The resources are of course deployed using a module with the deployment target set to AppGlobalResource.

Any ideas?

You can't use AppGlobalResource or <%$Resources:RESXFILE,RESOURCEKEY%> in Sandboxed solutions.

See Localization in SharePoint 2010 Sandbox Solutions for how to use resources in Sandboxed solutions.
