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). Note that the Automobile class, which is defined and instantiated in the example, is tagged with the SerializableAttribute attribute.

Remarks

The ResXResourceWriter writes resources in XML format. To write a binary resource file, use ResourceWriter.

Resources are specified as name/value pairs using the AddResource method. Resource names are case-sensitive when used for lookups; but to more easily support authoring tools and help eliminate bugs, ResXResourceWriter does not allow a.resx file to have names that vary only by case.

To create a.resx file, create a ResXResourceWriter with a unique file name, call AddResource at least once, call Generate to write the resources file to disk, and then call Close to close the file. Calling Close will implicitly Generate the file if required.

The resources are not necessarily written in the same order they were added.

For more information on the format of a.resx file, see Working with .resx Files Programmatically.

Note

This class contains a link demand and an inheritance demand at the class level that applies to all members. A SecurityException is thrown when either the immediate caller or the derived class does not have full-trust permission.

Constructors

ResXResourceWriter(Stream) ResXResourceWriter(Stream) ResXResourceWriter(Stream) ResXResourceWriter(Stream)

Initializes a new instance of the ResXResourceWriter class that writes the resources to the specified stream object.

ResXResourceWriter(Stream, Func<Type,String>) ResXResourceWriter(Stream, Func<Type,String>) ResXResourceWriter(Stream, Func<Type,String>) ResXResourceWriter(Stream, Func<Type,String>)

Initializes a new instance of the ResXResourceWriter class that writes the resources to a specified stream object and sets a converter delegate. This delegate enables resource assemblies to be written that target versions of the .NET Framework before the .NET Framework 4 by using qualified assembly names.

ResXResourceWriter(String) ResXResourceWriter(String) ResXResourceWriter(String) ResXResourceWriter(String)

Initializes a new instance of the ResXResourceWriter class that writes the resources to the specified file.

ResXResourceWriter(String, Func<Type,String>) ResXResourceWriter(String, Func<Type,String>) ResXResourceWriter(String, Func<Type,String>) ResXResourceWriter(String, Func<Type,String>)

Initializes a new instance of the ResXResourceWriter class that writes the resources to a specified file and sets a delegate that enables resource assemblies to be written that target versions of the .NET Framework before the .NET Framework 4 by using qualified assembly names.

ResXResourceWriter(TextWriter) ResXResourceWriter(TextWriter) ResXResourceWriter(TextWriter) ResXResourceWriter(TextWriter)

Initializes a new instance of the ResXResourceWriter class that writes to the specified TextWriter object.

ResXResourceWriter(TextWriter, Func<Type,String>) ResXResourceWriter(TextWriter, Func<Type,String>) ResXResourceWriter(TextWriter, Func<Type,String>) ResXResourceWriter(TextWriter, Func<Type,String>)

Initializes a new instance of the ResXResourceWriter class that writes the resources to a specified TextWriter object and sets a delegate that enables resource assemblies to be written that target versions of the .NET Framework before the .NET Framework 4 by using qualified assembly names.
