Description raheem52 2016-05-06 11:40:49 UTC
I am working on Xamarin for Mac and working on resx localization. Default resource file by name “AppResources.resx” is detected and works well but when any other language is added ex: ”AppResources.fr.resx” its not detected.

I am using below code to loop and check through Resource file

var assembly = typeof(AppResources).GetTypeInfo().Assembly;

foreach (var res in assembly.GetManifestResourceNames()) 

System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("found resource: " + res);

But other language resource is not shown.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Could you please attach a small example project showing how you have things setup? 

In particular how you are compiling your resources and AppResources.resx and AppResources.fr.resx files.
