PublicResXFileCodeGenerator automatically includes an attribute that is not available in Compact FrameWork 2.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • The "PublicResXFileCodeGenerator" Custom tool is a great option to provide public accessibility for the ResX strings generated automatically into designer.cs.  However, when using this custom tool - a new attribute is placed on the main class in designer.cs:


    The addition of this attribute causes the device project file (.designer.cs) to fail compilation because our target platform is Compact Framework 2.0, and this attribute is not defined in 2.0 (was only added with Compact Framework 3.5 and up).  

    Note that the original tool ResXFileCodeGenerator (which generates 'internal' accessibility) does not have this attribute issue (either it doesn't generate the attribute, or it is paying attention to the target setting in the project).

    Why can't Public version also pay attention to the platform setting?
