I would like to use the resource file and add string values to my project, how do I go about referencing the name in my vb project. I would like to use this to replace hard coded values such as URL's.

For example

Resource file
name = test_url
content = www.google.com

Code Module

Host.Local.OpenBrowser(test_url, "IE", "", False, True)

Is this the proper method to reference the resource file string name?

Hello,

If you want to use variables in your code you can either use global parameters or a data connector instead of the resource file.
If you want to use an external resource file, you can use the methods from the .NET IO Namespace in order to parse the file and save the specific values into you variable.
