    Adding Resources

    Ok how do you add resources with MSVC++'s editor.


    This is what I have so far, you make a regular win32 project.
    Then you go to new and create resource script....right? What should I name it?

    How do I include it to my main .cpp file? Thanks in advance.

    If I understand your question correctly, all I do is select: Insert|Resource
    and then select the 'type'... dialog, menu or whatever you want.

    Or do you mean to add one you created earlier...
    Project|Add to Project

    Hope this helps!

    I got it thanks, you know how you have to specify the name of the resource when you register windows class and stuff that's what I meant. Also how you have to put #include "resource.h" at the top. Thanks though I got it.........it works cool.
