    Menu problems

    Just when I thought I was beginning to understand...

    Another problem from this tutorial, http://sunlightd.virtualave.net/Windows/GUI/

    I don't understand why I'm having trouble with the Menu
    I did a search here and found this link: http://www.praxis1.vic.edu.au/home/dcola/teeeee.zip but my browser can't navigate to it. Site problems maybe?


    How can these following errors say 'undeclared identifier'.

    Don't I have it entered right?

    Anyway here are the errors I'd really appreciate any pointers:

    c:\programming\tutorials\sunlight tutorial\win apps\complete app\complete app.cpp(109) : error C2065: 'ID_OPEN' : undeclared identifier
    c:\programming\tutorials\sunlight tutorial\win apps\complete app\complete app.cpp(109) : error C2051: case expression not constant
    c:\programming\tutorials\sunlight tutorial\win apps\complete app\complete app.cpp(120) : error C2065: 'ID_EXIT' : undeclared identifier
    c:\programming\tutorials\sunlight tutorial\win apps\complete app\complete app.cpp(120) : error C2051: case expression not constant
    c:\programming\tutorials\sunlight tutorial\win apps\complete app\complete app.cpp(123) : warning C4060: switch statement contains no 'case' or 'default' labels
    c:\programming\tutorials\sunlight tutorial\win apps\complete app\complete app.cpp(166) : error C2065: 'IDR_MAIN' : undeclared identifier

    Error executing cl.exe.
    Complete App.exe - 5 error(s), 1 warning(s)




    and this is my Resource.h file

    //{{NO_DEPENDENCIES}}
    // Microsoft Developer Studio generated include file.
    // Used by ResourceCompleteApp.rc
    //
    #define IDD_DIALOG1 101
    #define IDR_MAIN 102
    #define IDC_FILE 1000
    #define IDC_BROWSE 1001
    #define IDC_VIEW 1002
    #define ID_EXIT 40002
    #define ID_OPEN 40004

    // Next default values for new objects
    //
    #ifdef APSTUDIO_INVOKED
    #ifndef APSTUDIO_READONLY_SYMBOLS
    #define _APS_NEXT_RESOURCE_VALUE 104
    #define _APS_NEXT_COMMAND_VALUE 40005
    #define _APS_NEXT_CONTROL_VALUE 1003
    #define _APS_NEXT_SYMED_VALUE 101
    #endif
    #endif


    'code snippet' all include it all if you like.

    Code:
    BOOL MainWindow_OnCommand(HWND hWnd, WORD wCommand, 
    
    WORD wNotify, HWND hControl)
    {
    	switch (wCommand)
    	{
    	case ID_OPEN:
    
    		if (hBitmap != NULL)
    			DeleteObject(hBitmap);
    
    		GetBitmapFileName(szBitmapFilename, sizeof(szBitmapFilename) / sizeof(TCHAR), hWnd);
    		hBitmap = LoadBitmapFile(szBitmapFilename);
    		RedrawWindow(hWnd, NULL, NULL, RDW_INVALIDATE | RDW_ERASE);
    		break;
    
    	case ID_EXIT:
    		DestroyWindow(hWnd);
    		break;
    	}
    	return TRUE;
    }

    Cannot open include file: 'resource.h': No such file or directory

    I've fixed several problems in my code. Now my only error is: Cannot open include file: 'resource.h': No such file or directory
    Error executing cl.exe.

    Any Ideas?

    MSVC++6, Win XP.

    Code:
    // Bit Map Viewer
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <tchar.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    #include "resource.h"

    Try checking the working folder settings

    Project -> Settings

    Click the Debug tab,

    ensure the folder containing 'resource.h' is the one listed in the 'working directory' edit (not the 'executable for debug session' edit)

    repeat for the release.

    or

    supply the full path to the file in the #include

    Just a thought. Did you try to remove resource.h from the project then re-add it? Sometimes i would have this problem with VC6 but it stoped that when I finally downloaded SP5.
