In this quick Silverlight tip Alex Golesh shows how to use localized resources from the RESX files.

Here I already explained how to create the RESX files for Silverlight (by the way the article is relevant also for Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 & Silverlight 3), and how to use those resources from XAML. In some cases, though, it is needed to use those resources from code behind. In my scenario I had to create value converter, which converts some Boolean value to string representation and for localizes application I had to provide localized value.

In order to use resources from code behind one need to get instance of ResourceManager class, and the use its methods to get the resource by name for any supported culture.
