This is the original description by the creator:
One of the great new features of the Visual Studio 2005/2008 .NET IDE is a custom tool called ResXFileCodeGenerator that is automatically associated with resources (.resx files) every time they are added into a project. Whenever your project is rebuilt, a resource file is saved or a custom tool is run manually; the tool in question generates a managed class that exposes every resource you have in the .resx file as a strongly typed static property. Now, any type of resource supported -- including images, icons, strings, etc. -- is a piece of cake to retrieve.
