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 .
