Resource string handling

The Symbian platform provides support for loading and formatting resource strings through the StringLoader class. To use this class, you must define your strings in the resource file with the RESOURCE TBUF statement.

The syntax for the resource string declaration is as follows:

RESOURCE TBUF r_name34 { buf = STRING_value_in_rls_file; }


  • RESOURCE is the keyword for the statement.

  • TBUF is a utility structure to contain the string.

  • r_name34 is the symbolic ID used in your code.

  • STRING_value_in_rls_file maps to a value in an rls file to support localization and internationalization.

For more information, see TBUF.
