BamlLocalizer Class

Extracts resources from a BAML file and generates a localized version of a BAML source.


Namespace:  System.Windows.Markup.Localizer
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public class BamlLocalizer

The BamlLocalizer type exposes the following members.

Public methodBamlLocalizer(Stream)Initializes a new instance of the BamlLocalizer class with the specified BAML source stream.
Public methodBamlLocalizer(Stream, BamlLocalizabilityResolver)Initializes a new instance of the BamlLocalizer class with the specified localizability resolver and BAML source stream.
Public methodBamlLocalizer(Stream, BamlLocalizabilityResolver, TextReader)Initializes a new instance of the BamlLocalizer class with the specified localizability resolver, BAML source stream, and TextReader.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodExtractResourcesExtracts all localizable resources from a BAML stream.
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.)
Protected methodOnErrorNotifyRaises the ErrorNotify event.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodUpdateBamlApplies resource updates to the BAML source and writes the updated version to a specified stream in order to create a localized version of the source BAML.

Public eventErrorNotifyOccurs when the BamlLocalizer encounters abnormal conditions.

This class is the primary entry point to the BAML localization API. You must create an instance of this class for each BAML source that you localize.

The following example demonstrates how to use a BamlLocalizer.

// Obtain the BAML stream.
Stream source = entry.Value as Stream;

// Create a BamlLocalizer on the stream.
BamlLocalizer localizer = new BamlLocalizer(source);
BamlLocalizationDictionary resources = localizer.ExtractResources();

// Write out all the localizable resources in the BAML.
foreach (DictionaryEntry resourceEntry in resources)
    BamlLocalizableResourceKey key = resourceEntry.Key as BamlLocalizableResourceKey;
    BamlLocalizableResource value = resourceEntry.Value as BamlLocalizableResource;
        "    {0}.{1}.{2} = {3}",
