Spring.NET 1.3.0 RC1 for .NET 2.0 API Reference

IMessageSource.GetMessage(String, CultureInfo, Object) Method

Resolve the message identified by the supplied name.

[Visual Basic]
Public Sub GetMessage( _
   ByVal name As String, _
   ByVal culture As CultureInfo, _
   ParamArray arguments As Object _
string GetMessage(
   string name,
   CultureInfo culture,
   params object[] arguments


The name of the message to resolve.
The CultureInfo that represents the culture for which the resource is localized.
The array of arguments that will be filled in for parameters within the message, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if there are no parameters within the message. Parameters within a message should be referenced using the same syntax as the format string for the Format method.

Return Value

The resolved message if the lookup was successful (see above for the return value in the case of an unsuccessful lookup).


Note that the fallback behavior based on CultureInfo seem to have a bug that is fixed by installed .NET 1.1 Service Pack 1.

If the lookup is not successful, implementations are permitted to take one of two actions.
