|Resource_t::Resource_t||(||stringliteral *|| library_name =
If library_name is NULL, initializes a resource pool for the main application. If library_name is not NULL, initializes a resource pool for a library of the specified name. The ".dll" or ".so" extension should not be included. Resources cannot be guaranteed to be available before main has been called or after main has returned, so no resource objects may exist at those times or an assertion failure will occir. When a module is unloaded, there can be no stale Resource_t objects referencing it. If any remain, an assertion failure will occur.
|const String_t& Resource_t::ModuleName||(||)|| const
Returns the name of the module represented by the resource. The module name will be an empty string if the resource object was constructed with a library name of NULL, representing the main application.
Loads an arbitrary glob of data into the buffer provided by the caller. Specific loader functions for dialog, png, and jpeg contents are included in the UTgfx and UTgui libraries. The resource content must fit in the provided buffer as specified by max_size, otherwise an assertion failure will occur. The actual size of the resource content is returned.
Loads an arbitrary glob of data into the Buffer_t provided by the caller. Specific loader functions for dialog, png, and jpeg contents are included in the UTgfx and UTgui libraries.
Loads an arbitrary glob of text classified as being a string into the String_t provided by the caller. This mechanism should NOT be used for localization. For that purpose, use GetLocalizedString instead.
|void Resource_t::SetLocale||(||stringliteral *||locale,|
Selects the locale used by this instance of Resource_t. If global is true, new resource instances will default to that locale.
The locale-specific string mappings are specified with an ISO 639-3 language code followed by an underscore, followed by * to specify any territory or an ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code, for example "eng_US" for English (U.S.), "eng_GB" English (Great Britain), "deu_DE" for German (Germany), "spa_ES" for Spanish (Spain), "fra_CA" for French (Canada), or "eng_*" to match and provide translations for any english language locale including "eng_GB", "eng_US", or other locales beginning with "eng_".
Some locales have mutiple 3-character identifiers corresponding to a single 2-character identifier, due either to common but incorrect usage, or deprecation. Linux version 2.6.22 returns 2-character language identifiers, so those identifiers are mapped to a single 3-character identifier for locale strings lookup purposes.

Because the specified locale cannot be guaranteed to be supported by the application and all of the libraries that it makes use of, locale selection is fairly complicated. In general terms, the selection logic is as follows:
A language set by Resource_t::SetLocale (not global) is preferred if it is supported.
A language set by Resource_t::SetLocale (global) is preferred if it is supported.
The system default language is preferred if neither of the above are supported.
The first language supported by the application is preferred if none of the above are supported.
Within the language chosen above, if the specified country is supported, it is used.
Within the language chosen above, if the specified country is not supported, the first country supported by that language is used.
Retrieves a localized string based on the supported locales included in the application's resources and the current locale. See SetLocale for information on locale selection.
|bool Resource_t::IsSystemDefaultLocaleSupported||(||bool|| support_language_only =
Returns true if the native locale of the system is supported by the module. This would typically be called once at startup for the application, to determine whether a locale selector dialog should be displayed. If support_language_only is true, then even if the default locale is not supported, true will be returned if the language (not country) portion of the system default locale is supported.
Returns the number of locales supported by the application or library which this resource instance refers to.
Returns the name of a locale supported by the application or library, at the specified index.
