very new to asm. which resource editor is the best one to use?

Notepad.exe Seriously, every resource editor kinda sucks for ASM. I mostly use a Symantic editor I got somewhere. It makes an uneditable .rc file (and two other artifacts you can't toutch), so I'm used to making a copy and running THAT thru Notepad (actually I use Quick Editor for text files). I only use editors for dialogs. Everything else is kinda simple enough to do in a text editor.

smurf, Download the file called NRE.EXE, its old but it does the job OK. Be careful and only use numeric IDs for controls and dialogs, its the recommended method by Microsoft anyway, it will do dialogs, icons and bitmaps OK, its worth learning to edit menus manually as its faster and easier to edit. the trick with it is to delete out the C++ junk and put the include to the resource.h file in the masm32 include directory.

Try the one included with Borland C++ 5.5, it's free at :)

Clip, Unless they changed it recently there is no Resource editor included with the BC++ 5.5 free download. James

really? I know this may sound silly but have you tried accessing it in File>New>Resource Project (access is through there)? I've downloaded my copy about a year ago and it included it. clip

james, I got it from the borland museum. Now I can't find the link to the musuem. I got in via a search engine link but then I can't find the bcc 5.5 download link just the c++builder download (or i overlooked it?). Anyway, that's the only place where i could've possibly got it. led me to it about a year ago. :)

What I believe Clip is talking about is the Borland Trial CD that contains Delphi 5.0, Borland C++ Builder 5.5, The Command Line Tools, and other Trial Run Items. This would allow you to use the C++ Builder Resourse builder. I could be wrong, but I think I am right.

ok, here is where the Borland site hold the resource editor:- goto : Now, register/login, then click on C++ at the top, it takes you to a scarey looking picture of the guy in charge, next to him is the blurb, saying 'get Borland 5.5 here free' select it... off you go.... umbongo
