public abstract class ResourceProviderFactory

ResourceProviderFactory is an abstract class that serves as the base class for objects that return global and local resource providers. Classes must derive from ResourceProviderFactory to implement its functionality.

The following code example shows a customized resource provider factory that retrieves cached values.

[
    DesignTimeResourceProviderFactoryAttribute(
        typeof(CustomDesignTimeResourceProviderFactory))
]
public class CustomResourceProviderFactory : ResourceProviderFactory
{
    public override IResourceProvider
      CreateGlobalResourceProvider(string classname)
    {
        return new CustomResourceProvider(null, classname);
    }
    public override IResourceProvider
      CreateLocalResourceProvider(string virtualPath)
    {
        return new CustomResourceProvider(virtualPath, null);
    }
}

// Define the resource provider for global and local resources. 
internal class CustomResourceProvider : IResourceProvider
{
    string _virtualPath;
    string _className;

    public CustomResourceProvider(string virtualPath, string classname)
    {
        _virtualPath = virtualPath;
        _className = classname;
    }

    private IDictionary GetResourceCache(string culturename)
    {
        return (IDictionary)
            System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Cache[culturename];
    }

    object IResourceProvider.GetObject
        (string resourceKey, CultureInfo culture)
    {
        object value;

        string cultureName = null;
        if (culture != null)
        {
            cultureName = culture.Name;
        }
        else
        {

        }

        value = GetResourceCache(cultureName)[resourceKey];
        if (value == null)
        {
            value = GetResourceCache(null)[resourceKey];
        }
        return value;
    }

            }

            return new CustomResourceReader
                (GetResourceCache(cultureName));

    }
}
