I want to get resources that are kept at directory in my visual webpart "User Control" for SharePoint 2007:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\Resources

At the moment I am doing something like this but its not working,

<div style="float:left; width: 35%;">
      <asp:Label ID="lblabc" runat="server" Text="How to get resources here ??" />   

1 Answer 1


you have to pass like below in your code

<asp:Label ID="lblabc" runat="server" Text="<%$ Resources:SampleFile,keyName %>"/>
  • this doesn't work until I add Resources folder in my solution and also copy resource files to App global resources in Virtual directory of app Oct 19, 2012 at 9:41
