ResourceReader::Close Method ()


Releases all operating system resources associated with this ResourceReader object.

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

virtual void Close() sealed

Close can be safely called multiple times.

The following example moves through a file's resources and displays all the key/value pairs it finds. The code then uses the Close method to shut down the ResourceReader and to release all resources used by it.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Resources;
using namespace System::Collections;
int main()

   // Create a ResourceReader for the file items.resources.
   ResourceReader^ rr = gcnew ResourceReader( "items.resources" );

   // Create an IDictionaryEnumerator* to iterate through the resources.
   IDictionaryEnumerator^ id = rr->GetEnumerator();

   // Iterate through the resources and display the contents to the console.
   while ( id->MoveNext() )
      Console::WriteLine( "\n [{0}] \t {1}", id->Key, id->Value );
