ResourceWriter.Close Method ()


Saves the resources to the output stream and then closes it.

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

public void Close()

Exception Condition

An I/O error has occurred.


An error has occurred during serialization of the object.

Generate is called implicitly by Close, if required.

The following example uses the Close method to write all resource objects in a ResourceWriter class to the output stream. The code then shuts down the writer.

using System;
using System.Resources;
using System.IO;

public class WriteResources 
    public static void Main(string[] args) 
        // Create a file stream to encapsulate items.resources.
        FileStream fs = new FileStream("items.resources", 

        // Open a resource writer to write from the stream.
        IResourceWriter writer = new ResourceWriter(fs);

        // Add resources to the resource writer.
        writer.AddResource("String 1", "First String");
        writer.AddResource("String 2", "Second String");
        writer.AddResource("String 3", "Third String");

        // Write the resources to the stream, and close it.
