Adding resource

This message is probably out of topic but I get no response from the less
popular microsoft.publi c.dotnet.genera l newsgroup.

Is there a resource manager of some sort in VS C# .NET which you can use to
add resources such as icons, textfiles, etc. ? AS far as I see it, pictures
can only be added through the properties of controls such as
"BackgroundImag e". I opened up the resource view and it is always blank. I
tried creating a .RESX file but when opened it, it is just some creepy

Hi Bern,

I've found the community member have provided some resource on the
ResEditor tool in dotnet.general group:

Resource Editor (RESEDITOR)
/html/resource_editor __reseditor_.as p

It is a managed application which can help generate .resource file via
adding different kind of resource files(image, script file ...)
Also, we can also use the Assembly linker (al.exe) to emebeded resources
into assembly

#Assembly Linker (Al.exe)
ources.asp?fram e=true
In addition, if you're using VS.NET, we can use the "Add existing item"
menu to add a existing resource item( image , txt file ...) into the
project , then, set the file's "Build Action" as "embeded resource" so
that the item will be compiled as resource into our project's main assembly:
#HOW TO: Embed and Access Resources by Using Visual C# .NET

Hope these helps. Thanks.

I am resurrecting this question (since it got bumped down by more recent posts). This is probably very simple - I need to add a version resource to a DLL project in MSVC++ 2005 Express in order to have version info, copyright, etc. when checking the DLL file properties from Windows Explorer. Any guidance is appreciated.

I have a situation, where I need to add 4 or 5 data files (they change every time I build) in my project during build time and somehow I need a way to access these files during runtime. So I have 2 questions 1. Is it possible to identify all the files in the resource file during runtime by name of the file? 2. Is it possible to add files to a project at build time to make an exe with those files? Thanks.

Is there such a thing as storing icons or bitmaps into a resource file, and adding more icons or bitmaps into the resource file at runtime? I want to store a bunch of icons into a resource file, and at runtime I want to be able to add more icons as I need to add. I don't want to use an imagelist because that will be a set number of icons in the program.

Just curious, When you are in IDE, you are able to add a resource to the project through resource tab. Later this resource can be accessed using the resource manager. One good thing about this approach is that, the resource file is build into the exe and using resource manager you can later get already added resource file back. Now is it possible to do that through programatically? I want to add a resource to the default resource (if I use...
