Since we have recently changed management of resources in SharpDevelop project, our good old WinForms-based ResourceEditor needed a review. So we chose rewriting its UI in WPF to implement a better architecture and solve some focusing issues:
Basically our editor for *.resx files works in the same manner as before:
- You can add new string resources or load image resources from external files through context menu.
- Cut/Copy/Paste resource items, even between two open resource files.
- Edit contents of a resource item by selecting it and using the view area below the list.
- Edit comments for resource items (through context menu)
But there is one new helpful feature: Now you are able to filter the list using the text field at the top:
After pressing Enter key or clicking the "Update" button the filter text is applied to list. When pressing Escape key in the text field, current filter is reset.
Now it should be much easier to work with big resource files.
