ASP.NET: Edit App_GlobalResources with precompiled web


Is there any options to editing the resources in the App_GlobalResources folder? Once compiled, the directory is not included as part of the precompiled folder.

I read online that the App_GlobalResources Resources are compiled into a DLL for easy access. However, I want the administrator to be able to update the content of these files. Is the only way to convert these GlobalResources .RESX into LocalResources?

I don't know of any way to edit the files "in place" once they're compiled - but why not just make your changes, precompile the web again, and then just deploying the App_GlobalResources.compiled and App_GlobalResources.dll separately to your website? That should update the global resource DLL and should achieve what you're looking for, I think.
