Image Editor

P: n/a
I am trying to use the Image Editor to add a resource to my VB.Net project.
The instructions from the help file are: (I have Vs.Net 2003, Pro edition)

1)In Solution Explorer, right-click the project folder (for example,
WindowsApplication1).
2)From the shortcut menu, click Add, then choose Add New Item.
3)In the Categories pane, expand the Local Project Items folder, then choose
Resources.

All goes well until STep 3. When expanded, the Categories Pane doesn't have
a Resources Option!

What am I doing wrong?

Dennis,

As far as I know can you not directly use the image editior to add a
recourse to your resx file, when I understand you well is that to make
(change) bitmaps what is it you want to archive?

I'm having trouble finding out how to start the Image Editor! The only
documentation I can find is the instructions in the help file which I can't
seem to get to work. How do you start the damn image editor anyway?

Dennis,

Open a .bmp file as an item and it will directly show up in the image
editor, the same is with an .Ico file.

I hope this is what you was trying to find?

Ok, I got the Icon Editor to start when I add a new item and select Icon
type. However, if I select a "Existing Item", all I get is a binary dump of
the item. What I'm trying to do is add an existing Icon to my project then
edit it.

Tried that and I get "Cannot load any resources from this file". What I did
was to Add an existing item (icon ICO file) then right clicked and selected
"Open With" then selected Resources Editor!
