ResourceSet Constructor (String)

Creates a new instance of the ResourceSet class using the system default ResourceReader that opens and reads resources from the given file.

Namespace:  System.Resources
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
	String^ fileName


Type: System::String

Resource file to read.


The fileName parameter is nullptr.

The following code example defines a new instance of the ResourceSet class for a specific file, iterates through the resources used by that file, and displays their contents to the console.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Resources;
using namespace System::Collections;
int main()

   // Create a ResourceSet for the file items.resources.
   ResourceSet^ rs = gcnew ResourceSet( "items.resources" );

   // Create an IDictionaryEnumerator* to read the data in the ResourceSet.
   IDictionaryEnumerator^ id = rs->GetEnumerator();

   // Iterate through the ResourceSet and display the contents to the console. 
   while ( id->MoveNext() )
      Console::WriteLine( "\n [{0}] \t {1}", id->Key, id->Value );
