public sealed class AssemblyResourceLoader : System.Web.IHttpHandler


The System.Web.Handlers.AssemblyResourceLoader class is an HTTP handler that enables an ASP.NET page or control to load embedded resources, such as client script, images, and data files, from a compiled .NET assembly. For more information on how to embed resources in a .NET assembly, see the documentation for the compiler that you use.

The System.Web.Handlers.AssemblyResourceLoader handler responds to requests made to URLs generated by the System.Web.UI.ClientScriptManager.GetWebResourceUrl(Type, string) method. Before responding to the request, the System.Web.Handlers.AssemblyResourceLoader handler ensures that the resource should be available directly over the Web.

The handler responds to requests of the form


WebResource.axd?d=<encrypted identifier>&t=<time stamp value>

where <encryped identifier> uniquely identifies the requested Web resource and <time stamp value> is the time stamp for the requested assembly so that changes to the assembly can be detected and the cached resource invalidated.

This class supports the ASP.NET infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.
