How to get resources from webapplications App_GlobalResources directory in workflows ?

Is it only way to put resources in to 12/Resources directory and get them with above method?


Thank you in advance

It is my experience that resources in App_GlobalResources can not always be accessed as it relies on the HttpContext being present, which is not always the case, e.g. after a 'wait for' or 'wait until' workflow action.

Yeas you are right! Nevertheless I have to use GetLocalizedString() to get resources from 12 hive in a workflow that works perfect... – SAV Nov 18 '10 at 8:50
