ResourceExpressionFields Class

Contains the fields from a parsed resource expression.


Namespace:  System.Web.Compilation
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public sealed class ResourceExpressionFields

The ResourceExpressionFields type exposes the following members.

Public propertyClassKeyGets the class key for a parsed resource expression.
Public propertyResourceKeyGets the resource key for a parsed resource expression.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

When a page is parsed, the values contained in a resource expression are parsed and stored in an instance of the ResourceExpressionFields class. This ResourceExpressionFields object contains two fields, ClassKey and ResourceKey. These fields are drawn from the values of a resource expression in either the explicit (<%$ Resources: ClassKey, ResourceKey %>) or implicit (meta:resourcekey="ResourceKey") form.

The ClassKey property identifies the class name of a resource that is mapped to a resource file. For example, to reference a resource file named Financial.resx, or a localized version such as Financial.en-GB.resx, the resource expression would appear as <%$ Resources: Financial, ResourceKey %>. After parsing, the ClassKey property would return "Financial" as its value.

The ResourceKey property identifies the particular key/value pair to be retrieved from the file. If the Financial.resx file contains a key called Currency, that value could be specified with the resource expression <%$ Resources: Financial, Currency %>. After parsing, the ResourceKey property would return "Currency" as its value.

The resource expression is parsed through the ParseExpression method.

Caution noteCaution

Sensitive information should not be stored in a resource file.
