How to list the items in a Resource class

When you want to enumerate through the items in a Resource class, you find that its ResourceManager class doesn't have a method for it, only GetString or GetObject for when you know the key. The solution to get all of the items in a Resource class comes with the GetResourceSet method of the ResourceManager, which returns an IEnumerable class, but not a collection. The enumerator can be of different types, but by default it is a HashTable, therefore the items the enumerator returns are of the type of DictionaryEntry.

So the code is as follows:
var resourceSet = ResourceClass.ResourceManager.GetResourceSet(CultureInfo.CurrentCulture, false, true);
foreach (DictionaryEntry resource in resourceSet)
{
DoSomethingWith(resource.Key, resource.Value);
}
