ResourceReader.Close Method

Releases all operating system resources associated with this ResourceReader object.

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

Public Sub Close



Close can be safely called multiple times.

The following example moves through a file's resources and displays all the key/value pairs it finds. The code then uses the Close method to shut down the ResourceReader and to release all resources used by it.

Class EnumerateResources

   Public Shared Sub Main()
      ' Create a ResourceReader for the file items.resources. 
      Dim rr As New ResourceReader("items.resources")      

      ' Create an IDictionaryEnumerator to iterate through the resources. 
      Dim id As IDictionaryEnumerator = rr.GetEnumerator()

      ' Iterate through the resources and display the contents to the console.  
      While id.MoveNext()
         Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.NewLine + "[{0}] " + ControlChars.Tab + "{1}", id.Key, id.Value)
      End While 


   End Sub
