Displaying .rc files
I am following the windows tutorials on sunlightd.com and cannot get the .rc file to show when I execute it. I made the resource with MSVC++ and added it to the project. My resource file doesn't show that it has defined anything for my .rc file at all.
I hope I am not causing you guys too much grief, if it helps I did do a search but none of those seemed to help me very much.
What do you mean, executing an .rc file? Do you mean, accessing it in the resource editor?
erm the thing is Visual C++ doesn't really show you much when it comes to resource files. If I were you I would open your resource file in notepad so you can see what is being defined and what is not. I program all my resource files in notepad because I hate the way visual C++ does it and it adds loads of code to your rc files that does not need to be there.
I agree. I hate the resource editor. I had a trick working a while back to edit the .rc file in text mode, but I can't remember it now. It involved creating the .rc normally, then opening it in notepad, changing stuff around, then Visual Studio would just open it as text. I'll post again when I remember how to do it.
