Remarks

The caller must not call the ResourceWriter.Generate() and ResourceWriter.Close() methods, because these methods are called by ModuleBuilder.Save when the dynamic assembly is written to disk.

Use this method to embed a managed resource. To embed a manifest resource blob, use the DefineManifestResource method. For a summary of embedding and linking managed resources and manifest resource blobs, see the DefineManifestResource method.

Note

Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1, this member no longer requires ReflectionPermission with the ReflectionPermissionFlag.ReflectionEmit flag. (See Security Issues in Reflection Emit.) To use this functionality, your application should target the .NET Framework 3.5 or later.
