IMap<winrt::hstring, RandomAccessStreamReference> ResourceMap();
public IDictionary<string, RandomAccessStreamReference> ResourceMap { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property ResourceMap As IDictionary<string, RandomAccessStreamReference>

Property Value

IDictionary<string, RandomAccessStreamReference> IDictionary<string, RandomAccessStreamReference> IDictionary<string, RandomAccessStreamReference>

Specifies a name/value pair that specifies the an HTML path with a corresponding StreamReference object.

HTML content often contains references to other files. The most common example is an img tag that refers to a specific file. To ensure that the image is sent with the rest of the HTML content, you need to use ResourceMap, which maps the URI string to the actual data. You can learn more about this in How to share HTML.
