Topics: Validation Application Block
Sep 4, 2009 at 12:37 AM

I just wanted to clarify if what I am doing is correct. I am using the validation block and I need language specific error messages. I added 

<font size="2">

MessageTemplateResourceType =

</font>

typeof(Resource.Errormessage)

to my StringLengthValidator for example.

Now I have a Errormessage.resx in my Resource folder. I also have a Errormessage.de.resx and a Errormessage.es.resx.

Is this the correct approach to make the error messages language specific?

Yes, that approach should work. I tried it and seems to work just fine. The validation app block retrieves the message template at runtime based on the CurrentUICulture.
