The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Provides the base functionality for writing resources to an output file or stream.

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

public interface IResourceWriter : IDisposable

System_CAPS_pubmethodAddResource(String, Byte[])

Adds an 8-bit unsigned integer array as a named resource to the list of resources to be written.

System_CAPS_pubmethodAddResource(String, Object)

Adds a named resource of type Object to the list of resources to be written.

System_CAPS_pubmethodAddResource(String, String)

Adds a named resource of type String to the list of resources to be written.


Closes the underlying resource file or stream, ensuring all the data has been written to the file.


Performs application-defined tasks associated with freeing, releasing, or resetting unmanaged resources.(Inherited from IDisposable.)


Writes all the resources added by the AddResource method to the output file or stream.

Resource writers are used to write resources to files in a particular file format. Implement this interface if you want to control the way in which a resource file is written (for example, to store resources in something other than a .txt, .resx, or binary .resources file). Otherwise, use the default ResourceWriter class, which writes resources to a binary .resources file, or the ResXResourceWriter class, which writes resources to an XML resource (.resx) file.
