How to handle multiple idioms? - Resources

while1forkwhile1fork Posts: 1Member

I need to use multiple idioms in my program using resources but I need some help..
I have a strings.txt (taken from an example..) with:

promptCulture = Please select the culture you wish to view this example in ==>
promptName = Please enter your name ==>
promptAge = Please enter your age ==>
promptDegrees = Please enter the current temperature,
promptMissing = Please ensure you enter a valid value.
promptValidAge = Please enter a valid age for an adult (15 and up)
promptDist = Please tell us how far you travel to work
promptValidDist = Please enter a valid distance (greater than zero).
promptValidDeg = Please enter a viable outside temperature (-100 to 140).
promptEntries = You entered the following information:

And the code:
private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

rmIdiom = new ResourceManager("strings", System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly());
ciInfoIdiom = new CultureInfo(CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture.Name);
MessageBox.Show(rmIdioma.GetString( "promptName", ciInfoIdioma ));

It's supposed I have to have one dir per idiom then with its dll.. but as I execute the above code I get an exception:

How do I add my "strings.resources" to the project? I've tryied the Dos compilation using /res:.. and it doesn't work. :((
I've read something about 'the neutral idiom', is this involved too?

Sorry I'm making so many questions. Big thankies in advance.
