Definition

Adds a resource to the list of resources to write.

Overloads

AddResource(String, Object) AddResource(String, Object) AddResource(String, Object) AddResource(String, Object)

Adds a named resource specified as an object to the list of resources to write.

AddResource(String, String) AddResource(String, String) AddResource(String, String) AddResource(String, String)

Adds a string resource to the resources.

AddResource(ResXDataNode) AddResource(ResXDataNode) AddResource(ResXDataNode) AddResource(ResXDataNode)

Adds a named resource specified in a ResXDataNode object to the list of resources to write.

AddResource(String, Byte[]) AddResource(String, Byte[]) AddResource(String, Byte[]) AddResource(String, Byte[])

AddResource(String, Object) AddResource(String, Object) AddResource(String, Object) AddResource(String, Object)

Adds a named resource specified as an object to the list of resources to write.

public:
 virtual void AddResource(System::String ^ name, System::Object ^ value);
public void AddResource (string name, object value);
abstract member AddResource : string * obj -> unit
override this.AddResource : string * obj -> unit
Public Sub AddResource (name As String, value As Object)

Parameters

name

Examples

The following example creates a .resx file named CarResources.resx that stores six strings, an icon, and two application-defined objects (two Automobile objects). To store the icon and the Automobile objects, it calls the AddResource(String, Object) method. Note that the Automobile class, which is defined and instantiated in the example, is tagged with the SerializableAttribute attribute.

Remarks

The resource is not written until Generate is called. The resource that was added must be serializable.

If the resource being added is a string, it is written as a string; otherwise, the resource is serialized and stored in a binary format.

AddResource(String, String) AddResource(String, String) AddResource(String, String) AddResource(String, String)

Adds a string resource to the resources.

public:
 virtual void AddResource(System::String ^ name, System::String ^ value);

abstract member AddResource : string * string -> unit
override this.AddResource : string * string -> unit
Public Sub AddResource (name As String, value As String)

Parameters

name
String String String String

The name of the resource.

value
String String String String
