IResourceReader Interface

Provides the base functionality to read data from resource files.

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

public interface IResourceReader : IEnumerable, 

The IResourceReader type exposes the following members.

Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkCloseCloses the resource reader after releasing any resources associated with it.
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkDisposePerforms application-defined tasks associated with freeing, releasing, or resetting unmanaged resources. (Inherited from IDisposable.)
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkGetEnumeratorReturns an IDictionaryEnumerator of the resources for this reader.

Public Extension MethodAsParallelEnables parallelization of a query. (Defined by ParallelEnumerable.)
Public Extension MethodAsQueryableConverts an IEnumerable to an IQueryable. (Defined by Queryable.)
Public Extension MethodSupported by the XNA FrameworkCast<TResult>Casts the elements of an IEnumerable to the specified type. (Defined by Enumerable.)
Public Extension MethodSupported by the XNA FrameworkOfType<TResult>Filters the elements of an IEnumerable based on a specified type. (Defined by Enumerable.)

Resource readers are used to read a stream of resource files in a particular file format. Implement this interface when you need to control the way in which a resource file is read (for example, if the resouce file was written using a customized ResourceWriter). Otherwise, use the default ResourceReader or ResXResourceReader.

See Encoding and Localization for details on the default resource file format.
