    Troubles Understanding Resources

    Hello All~
    I am having problems trying to figure out how to create and use a resource. Any tutorial would be great... I've checked google, and it usually leads me to the Vb version of this.

    What would be really great, would be an awsome link to a
    Windows API
    Tutorial! I did find one the other day, but the arguments aren't really shown, or any of the math.. Rough examples little help whatsoever..

    If anyone could help in this situation it would be greatly appriciated..

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Thank-You anyway..Any other help?

    There are minor differences in (resource) compiler behaviour so it's always useful to mention which compiler(s) you are using.

    This page seems to provide a brief introduction to resources.

    If you need further help then post any problematic code/resource scripts you are working with.

    Petzold's Programming Windows 5th ed. has a few good chapters on various resources and covers various other aspects of winapi programming, too.

    what type of resource are you trying to include in your project? Because actually including the resource is the easy part, but some resources need code to go along with them...
