AssemblyResourceLoader Class

Provides an HTTP handler used to load embedded resources from assemblies. This class cannot be inherited.


Namespace:  System.Web.Handlers
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public sealed class AssemblyResourceLoader : IHttpHandler

The AssemblyResourceLoader type exposes the following members.

Public methodAssemblyResourceLoaderInitializes a new instance of the AssemblyResourceLoader class. This constructor supports the ASP.NET infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Explicit interface implemetationPrivate propertyIHttpHandler.IsReusableInfrastructure. Gets a value that indicates whether another request can reuse the IHttpHandler instance.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIHttpHandler.ProcessRequestInfrastructure. For a description of this member, see ProcessRequest.

The AssemblyResourceLoader class is an HTTP handler that enables an ASP.NET page or control to load embedded resources, such as client script, images, and data files, from a compiled .NET assembly. For more information on how to embed resources in a .NET assembly, see the documentation for the compiler that you use.

The AssemblyResourceLoader handler responds to requests made to URLs generated by the GetWebResourceUrl method. Before responding to the request, the AssemblyResourceLoader handler ensures that the resource should be available directly over the Web.

The handler responds to requests of the form

WebResource.axd?d=<encrypted identifier>&t=<time stamp value>

where <encryped identifier> uniquely identifies the requested Web resource and <time stamp value> is the time stamp for the requested assembly so that changes to the assembly can be detected and the cached resource invalidated.

This class supports the ASP.NET infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.
