Properties

AllResourceMaps

Gets a map of ResourceMap objects typically associated with the app packages, indexed by package name.

Current

Gets the ResourceManager for the currently running application.

DefaultContext

Gets the default ResourceContext for the currently running application. Unless explicitly overridden, the default ResourceContext is used to determine the most appropriate representation of any given named resource.

Note

DefaultContext may be altered or unavailable for releases after Windows 8.1. Instead, use ResourceContext.GetForCurrentView.

MainResourceMap

Gets the ResourceMap that is associated with the main package of the currently running application.

Methods

GetAllNamedResourcesForPackage(String, ResourceLayoutInfo)

Gets a list of all named resources for an app package.

GetAllSubtreesForPackage(String, ResourceLayoutInfo)

Gets a list of all collections of resource subtrees for an app package.

IsResourceReference(String)

Determines whether a supplied string matches the resource reference format (an ms-resource string URI identifier).

LoadPriFiles(IIterable<IStorageFile>)

Loads one or more Package Resource Index (PRI) files and adds their contents to the default resource manager.

UnloadPriFiles(IIterable<IStorageFile>)

Unloads one or more Package Resource Index (PRI) files.
