There is even room left over for Klingon! Let's back up a step. You have certainly worked with the ASCII table. Consider the following piece ofVB code: Dim letter As String Dim number As Integer letter = Chr(65) number = Asc("A") 29 Chapter2 This code converts an ASCII number to its character representation and back again. In ASCII the capital letter A is 65. If you have ever intercepted a key press event from one of the VB controls you have had to use the ASCII conversion routines to see what letter was pressed.
There is no intermediate text file generated. How do you get a few thousand strings translated using this method? This would be very difficult, user-intensive, and prone to error. The next problem is one of syntax. The resource file mechanism in VB is number-driven. This means that you can only refer to a string resource by its number. As I have said in Chapter 2, it is much better and more maintainable to refer to a resource by a literal constant. As all good programmers know (and I know you are all good programmers), using hard-coded numbers as references is not good programming practice.
