Read all keys and values from resource file

I have added Resource1.resx file in my project. This reosurce file contains some key - value entries.

Scenario : Suppose you have localized country list and you have stored localized country list in resource file for performance reason. You can store localized list in sql table but if you want to avoid database hit and read it on server side.

This function reads Resource1.resx file and reads all keys of that resource file.

 public static List<string> GetAllResourceKeyStrings()
            List<string> resourceKeyStrings = new List<string>();
             ResourceSet resourceSet = null;
            resourceSet = Resource1.ResourceManager.GetResourceSet(CultureInfo.CurrentCulture, true, true);
            IDictionaryEnumerator Myenumerator = resourceSet.GetEnumerator();
            while (Myenumerator.MoveNext())
            return resourceKeyStrings;
