I'm using Login controls to authenticate users.
On one page (already localized), I use ChangePassword control to send emails to users to notify them with MailDefinition.BodyFileName property.
But how can I localize text using BodyFileName attribute?

Just bind the property to a key in your page's localresource file. The page's local resource file is the file located in a subdirectory called app_localresources in your page's directory. Just use visual studio's "tools -> create local resource" option
in design view for it be created for you.
In that file, create a string key/value pair with something like
Then bind this to the BodyFileName property of the login control with something like
<asp:ChangePassword id="myControl" BodyFileName='<%# (String)GetLocalResourceObject("MyBodyFileName") %>'>
Then just create the sattelite local resource files for other cultures and map that key/value pair in those resources to other body text files.

By the way, if you used visual studio to create the resource file for you, then the binding may have been done for you automatticaly. Just search for a "MyChangePasswordControlResource1.BodyFileName" key in the resource file or something similar.

Thanks for the answer.
Unfortunatly no, it did not create an entry for BodyFileName in the generated resource file.

It is ok to enter manually the key CreateUserWizard1Resource1.MailDefinition.BodyFileName in the resource file.
So problem is solved, thanks.
