ResourceReader Class

Enumerates .resources files and streams, reading sequential resource name and value pairs.

Namespace: System.Resources
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
public sealed class ResourceReader : IResourceReader, IEnumerable, IDisposable
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public final class ResourceReader implements IResourceReader, IEnumerable, 
	IDisposable
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public final class ResourceReader implements IResourceReader, IEnumerable, 
	IDisposable

The ResourceReader provides a default implementation of the IResourceReader interface.

You can use resource readers to read resource name and resource value pairs from .resources files. The resources can be enumerated by traversing the IDictionaryEnumerator returned by the GetEnumerator method. The methods provided by the IDictionaryEnumerator are used to advance to the next resource and read the name and value of each resource in the .resources file.

NoteNote

IEnumerable.GetEnumerator returns an IEnumerator object, not an IDictionaryEnumerator object.

The following code sample displays the content of "myResources.resources" files on the console:

using System;
using System.Resources;
using System.Collections;
 
public class ReadResources {

   public static void Main(string[] args) {

      // Opens a resource reader and gets an enumerator from it.
      IResourceReader reader = new ResourceReader("myResources.resources");
      IDictionaryEnumerator en = reader.GetEnumerator();
      
      // Goes through the enumerator, printing out the key and value pairs.
      while (en.MoveNext()) {
         Console.WriteLine();
         Console.WriteLine("Name: {0}", en.Key);
         Console.WriteLine("Value: {0}", en.Value);
      }
      reader.Close();
   }
}

import System.*;
import System.Resources.*;
import System.Collections.*;

public class ReadResources
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Opens a resource reader and gets an enumerator from it.
        IResourceReader reader = new ResourceReader("myResources.resources");
        IDictionaryEnumerator en = reader.GetEnumerator();

        // Goes through the enumerator, printing out the key and value pairs.
        while(en.MoveNext()) {
            Console.WriteLine();
            Console.WriteLine("Name: {0}", en.get_Key());
            Console.WriteLine("Value: {0}", en.get_Value());
        }
        reader.Close();
    } //main
} //ReadResources
