I'd like to set the title and description of a web part in the web part description file to a item in a global resource (located in App_GlobalResources). This is the snippet from my web part description file:
<properties> <property name="Title" type="string">$Resources:MISResources, VideoWebPartTitle</property> <property name="Description" type="string">$Resources:MISResources, VideoWebPartDesc</property> <property name="ChromeType" type="chrometype">None</property> </properties>
It isn't working however. It does work when I use a resource file in the 14 hive (by mapping the Resources folder in my VS project and creating a specially targetted resource file for my project), however I'd like all of my localization resources located in a single file for tidiness. Is this possible or can the web part description file not reference global resources files?
