Examples

This example is based on scenario 10 of the Application resources and localization sample. See the sample for the complete solution.

private void Scenario10Button_Show_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    Button b = sender as Button;
    if (b != null)
    {
        // Use a cloned context for this scenario so that qualifier values set
        // in this scenario don't impact behavior in other scenarios that
        // use a default context for the view (crossover effects between
        // the scenarios will not be expected).
        var context = ResourceContext.GetForCurrentView().Clone();

        var selectedLanguage = Scenario10ComboBox_Language.SelectedValue;
        var selectedScale = Scenario10ComboBox_Scale.SelectedValue;
        var selectedContrast = Scenario10ComboBox_Contrast.SelectedValue;
        var selectedHomeRegion = Scenario10ComboBox_HomeRegion.SelectedValue;

Properties

Candidates

Gets all possible candidate values for this named resource.

Uri

Gets a URI that can be used to refer to this named resource.

Methods

Resolve()

Resolves this NamedResource object against the default context and returns the most appropriate candidate.

Note

Resolve may be altered or unavailable for releases after Windows 8.1. Instead, use Resolve(ResourceContext).

Resolve(ResourceContext)

Resolves this NamedResource object against a supplied context and returns the most appropriate candidate.

ResolveAll()

Resolves this NamedResource object against the default context and returns a list of all possible candidates in preference order.

Note

ResolveAll may be altered or unavailable for releases after Windows 8.1. Instead, use ResolveAll(ResourceContext).

ResolveAll(ResourceContext)

Resolves this NamedResource object against a supplied context and returns a list of all possible candidates in preference order.
