A Type from which the ResourceManager derives all information for finding .resources files.

Exception typeCondition


The resourceSource parameter is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The ResourceManager infers the assembly, the base name, and a namespace for.resources files from the Type. The ResourceManager assumes you will be using satellite assemblies and want to use the default ResourceSet class. Given a type such as MyCompany.MyProduct.MyType, the ResourceManager will look for a .resources file (in the main assembly and satellite assemblies) named "MyCompany.MyProduct.MyType.[culture name.]resources" in the assembly that defines MyType.
