Generates the name for the resource file for the given CultureInfo.

[Visual Basic]
Protected Overridable Function GetResourceFileName( _
   ByVal culture As CultureInfo _
) As String
protected virtual string GetResourceFileName(
 CultureInfo culture
protected: virtual String* GetResourceFileName(
 CultureInfo* culture
protected function GetResourceFileName(
   culture : CultureInfo
) : String;


The CultureInfo for which a resource file name is constructed.

Return Value

The name that can be used for a resource file for the given CultureInfo.


This method uses CultureInfo 's Name property as part of the file name for all cultures other than the invariant culture. This method does not look in an assembly's manifest or touch the disk, and is used only to construct what a resource file name (suitable for passing to the ResourceReader constructor) or a manifest resource blob name should be.

A derived class can override this method to look for a different extension, such as ".ResX", or a completely different scheme for naming files.
