Create Shared Resource Assemblies in Visual Studio 2008

Couple of months ago in this post I described how to overcome the fact that resources in Visual Studio 2005 are compiled by default as internal. The need for public resource classes and shared resource assemblies is obvious in larger projects that span across multiple Visual Studio projects.

A new feature in Visual Studio 2008 allows developers to set the access modifier of the resource classes directly from the resource designer.

Another small but good reason to move forward to Visual Studio 2008.

This approach doesn’t work for designer mode. Is any way to use shared resources in designer?
