    How to read a Resourced file?


    my previous question about reading Resource Assembly info was greatly honoured and solved.

    but I'v encountered another issue.

    I simply access an .xml file from my application.
    But after publishing and installing my application it misses my xml file....
    So thinking being smart (;-)) I added this .xml file as a resource to my solution.

    But now I wonder how I programatically should access this xml file from the resource.

    Re: How to read a Resourced file?

    Hi Henk,

    Just let me answer myself... ;-)

    When accessing a resource which is an xml file then it will return a STRING to the CONTENTS of the resourced xml file.

    So to get the xml contents we need:

    string s = MyNameSpace.Properties.Resources.MyXmlFileName;

    To convert the data to an internal computer memory XML document we do:

    XmlDocument.InnerXml = s;

    thats all,

    thanks for listening anyway.
