Examples

This example is based on scenario 13 of the Application resources and localization sample. See the sample for the more complete solution.

// Create a ResourceContext.
var resourceContext = new Windows.ApplicationModel.Resources.Core.ResourceContext();

// Set the specific context for lookup of resources.
var qualifierValues = resourceContext.qualifierValues;
qualifierValues["language"] = "en-US";
qualifierValues["contrast"] = "standard";
qualifierValues["scale"] = "140";
qualifierValues["homeregion"] = "021"; // Northern America

// Resources actually reside within Scenario13 Resource Map.
var resourceIds = [
    '/Scenario13/languageOnly',
    '/Scenario13/scaleOnly',
    '/Scenario13/contrastOnly',
    '/Scenario13/homeregionOnly',
    '/Scenario13/multiDimensional',
];

var output = { str: "" };
resourceIds.forEach(function (resourceId) {
    renderNamedResource(resourceId, resourceContext, output);
});

function renderNamedResource(resourceId, resourceContext, output) {
    output.str += "Resource ID " + resourceId + ":\n";
    // Lookup the resource in the mainResourceMap (the one for this package).
    var namedResource = Windows.ApplicationModel.Resources.Core.ResourceManager.current.mainResourceMap.lookup(resourceId);

    // Return a ResourceCandidateVectorView of all possible resources candidates
    // resolved against the context in order of appropriateness.
    var resourceCandidates = namedResource.resolveAll(resourceContext);

    resourceCandidates.forEach(function (candidate, index) {
        renderCandidate(candidate, index, output);
    });
    output.str += "\n";
}

function renderCandidate(candidate, index, output) {
    // Get all the various qualifiers for the candidate (such as language, scale, contrast).
    candidate.qualifiers.forEach(function (qualifier) {
        output.str += "qualifierName: " + qualifier.qualifierName + "\n";
        output.str += "qualifierValue: " + qualifier.qualifierValue + "\n";
        output.str += "isDefault: ";
        output.str += (qualifier.isDefault) ? "true\n" : "false\n";
        output.str += "isMatch: ";
        output.str += (qualifier.isMatch) ? "true\n" : "false\n";
        output.str += "score: " + qualifier.score + "\n";
        output.str += "\n";
    });
}

An example of matching an ms-resource string URI identifier format: isResourceReference('ms-resource:Hello') returns true, but isResourceReference('Hello') returns false.

LoadPriFiles(IIterable<IStorageFile>) LoadPriFiles(IIterable<IStorageFile>) LoadPriFiles(IIterable<IStorageFile>) LoadPriFiles(IIterable<IStorageFile>)

Loads one or more resource index ("PRI") files and adds their contents to the default resource manager.

Remarks

The LoadPriFiles(IIterable<IStorageFile>) method accepts files only from inside the app package or dependent packages. See How to load string resources.

If resource packs are used by an app, this method will always fail.

Unloads one or more resource index ("PRI") files.
