Public Enumeration UltimateResourceFallbackLocation

Member nameDescription
MainAssembly

Fallback resources are located in the main assembly.

Satellite

Fallback resources are located in a satellite assembly.

The UltimateResourceFallbackLocation enumeration is used with the NeutralResourcesLanguageAttribute.NeutralResourcesLanguageAttribute(String, UltimateResourceFallbackLocation) constructor to specify whether a ResourceManager object retrieves the resources of the app's default culture from the main app assembly (the default), or from a satellite assembly. In a localized application, the resources of the default culture are used if no culture-specific resources are found after using the resource fallback process. For more information, see the "Resource Fallback Process" section in Packaging and Deploying Resources in Desktop Apps.

If you specify a value of MainAssembly or no value to the NeutralResourcesLanguageAttribute attribute and resource manager cannot load a resource set that belongs to the default culture, it throws a MissingManifestResourceException exception. If you specify a value of Satellite to the NeutralResourcesLanguageAttribute and resource manager cannot load a resource set that belongs to the default culture, it throws a MissingSatelliteAssemblyException exception.
