Custom personalization criteria: Create the localizable resource

After you reference the required assemblies, you create the localizable resources. Every module can have a list of localizable resources. In Sitefinity CMS, you wrap the resources in a class that inherits the Resource base class.

To create the resources class for the custom personalization:

  1. In Visual Studio, open the context menu of your project (for example the DayOfWeekPersonalization project for this tutorial) and click Add » New Item..
  2. In the left pane, select Visual C# » Class
  3. Name the class file CustomPersonalizationResources.cs and click Add.
  4. Make the CustomPersonalizationResources class inherit the Resource class. 
  5. Mark the class with the ObjectInfo attribute.
  6. Define the constructor of the class.
  7. Add the resource entries to the class.
    You create localizable resource entries, which will be used as field and title values in a later step of this tutorial.
