public string TypeName { get; }
[System.Obsolete("This property is obsolete. Use StringResourceClientTypeName instead.")]

Public ReadOnly Property TypeName As String

Property Value


The name that is used in client script when retrieving the values in the resource file.



The following example shows a ScriptResourceAttribute attribute for a script file named CheckAnswer.js that uses resources from the VerificationResources resource files. The name Answer is used to reference these resources. In this example, the TypeName property returns "Answer".

[assembly: System.Web.UI.WebResource("LocalizingScriptResources.CheckAnswer.js", "application/x-javascript")]
[assembly: System.Web.UI.ScriptResource("LocalizingScriptResources.CheckAnswer.js", "LocalizingScriptResources.VerificationResources", "Answer")]
<Assembly: System.Web.UI.WebResource("LocalizingScriptResources.CheckAnswer.js", "application/x-javascript")> 
<Assembly: System.Web.UI.ScriptResource("LocalizingScriptResources.CheckAnswer.js", "LocalizingScriptResources.VerificationResources", "Answer")> 

The following example shows how to use the resources in client script. The resource keys (Correct and Incorrect) are prefixed with Answer to identify the script resource definition that contains the values.

function CheckAnswer()
    var firstInt = $get('firstNumber').innerText;
    var secondInt = $get('secondNumber').innerText;
    var userAnswer = $get('userAnswer');
    if ((Number.parseLocale(firstInt) + Number.parseLocale(secondInt)) == userAnswer.value)
        return true;
        return false;


The TypeName property contains the value that is used for retrieving localized resources in client script. The client script must include the TypeName value and the key name for the resource to be localized.
