Adding resource

P: n/a
This message is probably out of topic but I get no response from the less
popular microsoft.public.dotnet.general 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
"BackgroundImage". 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
editor.

Hi Bern,

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

Resource Editor (RESEDITOR)
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...us/cptutorials
/html/resource_editor__reseditor_.asp

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)
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en...bly_Linker_Res
ources.asp?frame=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:

Hope these helps. Thanks.
