System.Resources.Tools Namespace


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

The System.Resources.Tools namespace contains the StronglyTypedResourceBuilder class, which provides support for strongly-typed resources. Beginning with the .NET Framework version 2.0, this compile-time feature encapsulates access to resources by creating classes that contain a set of static read-only (get) properties, thus making it easier to consume resources.


Provides support for strongly typed resources. This class cannot be inherited.


This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Defines an interface that enables the strongly typed resource builder (StronglyTypedResourceBuilder object) to determine which types and properties are available so it can emit the correct Code Document Object Model (CodeDOM) tree.

For more information about strongly-typed resources, see StronglyTypedResourceBuilder.
