Examples

The following example displays the resources of a file to the console, and then uses the Close method to shut down the reader and to make its resources available for other processes.

#using <system.windows.forms.dll>
#using <System.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Resources;
using namespace System::Collections;
void main()
{

   // Create a ResXResourceReader for the file items.resx.
   ResXResourceReader^ rsxr = gcnew ResXResourceReader( "items.resx" );


   // Iterate through the resources and display the contents to the console.
   IEnumerator^ myEnum = rsxr->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
   {
      DictionaryEntry^ d = safe_cast<DictionaryEntry^>(myEnum->Current);
      Console::WriteLine( "{0}:\t {1}", d->Key, d->Value );
   }


   //Close the reader.
   rsxr->Close();
}

using System;
using System.Resources;
using System.Collections;

class ReadResXResources
{
   public static void Main()
   {

      // Create a ResXResourceReader for the file items.resx.
      ResXResourceReader rsxr = new ResXResourceReader("items.resx");

      // Iterate through the resources and display the contents to the console.
      foreach (DictionaryEntry d in rsxr)
      {
    Console.WriteLine(d.Key.ToString() + ":\t" + d.Value.ToString());
      }

     //Close the reader.
     rsxr.Close();
   }
}

Imports System.Collections

Class ReadResXResources
   
   Public Shared Sub Main()
      
      ' Create a ResXResourceReader for the file items.resx.
      Dim rsxr As ResXResourceReader
      rsxr = New ResXResourceReader("items.resx")

      ' Iterate through the resources and display the contents to the console.
      Dim d As DictionaryEntry
      For Each d In  rsxr
         Console.WriteLine(d.Key.ToString() + ":" + ControlChars.Tab + d.Value.ToString())
      Next d
      
      'Close the reader.
      rsxr.Close()

   End Sub

End Class

Remarks

Calling Close enables the resources used by the ResXResourceReader to be reallocated for other purposes. For more information about Close, see Cleaning Up Unmanaged Resources.
