AppDomain.ResourceResolve Event

Occurs when the resolution of a resource fails because the resource is not a valid linked or embedded resource in the assembly.

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

public event ResolveEventHandler ResourceResolve



The ResolveEventHandler for this event can attempt to locate the assembly containing the resource and return it.

Important noteImportant

This event is not raised if resolution fails because no file can be found for a valid linked resource. It is raised if a manifest resource stream cannot be found, but it is not raised if an individual resource key cannot be found.

Beginning with the .NET Framework version 4, the ResolveEventArgs.RequestingAssembly property contains the assembly that requested the resource. For more information, see ResolveEventArgs.RequestingAssembly.

To register an event handler for this event, you must have the required permissions, or a SecurityException is thrown.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.
