ResourceKey Class

Provides an abstract base class for various resource keys.

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

public abstract class ResourceKey : MarkupExtension

The ResourceKey type exposes the following members.

Protected methodResourceKey Initializes a new instance of a class derived from ResourceKey.

Public propertyAssemblyGets an assembly object that indicates which assembly's dictionary to look in for the value associated with this key.

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 methodProvideValueReturns this ResourceKey. Instances of this class are typically used as a key in a dictionary. (Overrides MarkupExtension.ProvideValue(IServiceProvider).)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

This class provides no functionality except to supply a common base class for simple key detection in resource components.

Resource keys are either strings or instances of a type. This class provides support for classes that base key values on other object values, where the objects passed in assure uniqueness of the generated resource keys.
