Hi Guerrilla,

You might enjoy Ewayne's 'ResEdit' on his website:

hehe.. Ewayne is adding new features such as extracting resources from PE file and RES files to his resedit. Should be worth the wait

Btw... i just use the editor that comes with the vc

Good to hear Guerrilla !
I really think a modern, independant of any IDE and well written IDE is something that is missing in the windows programming world.

It is true that there is others resource editors but they are all old, or not very user friendly, or, part of a whole development environment and can't be separated from it...

That's indeed what I tought, but I'm not quite sure about the IDE yet.
Any good ideas here?

Anyway, I attached a sample proggie I made
It's just ment as a test, not as IDE

RadASM's resource editor allows you to either drag-resize or input pixel sizes directly. The others probably do as well. For RadASM you have only to edit the left/right/width/height fields directly.

Right click in the project window select "Add New" and choose dialog. A SaveAs dialog box will ask you for a name of the dialog type in something like "main" press OK. A dlg file will be added to your project, double click on it to open the editor. A project must be opened for the Add New menu to be enabled.

Once you have the dialog editor open and have created a dialog, on the toolbar is a button that looks like a Hammer and Wrench in an X, press it to display the editing tools. In the dialog editor there is a properties box that allows you to edit the specific styles and properties.

Anyone who tried Open Watcom's resource editor?
Posted on 2003-03-28 02:11:26 by Vortex
Can you tell me were I can download it?

Guerrilla: Open Watcom is a great freeware IDE that can target many platforms. It even has an assembler "Wasm" that uses much of the Masm syntax. I had trouble openning it's resource files with standard resource editors, and I'm not sure if the res file can be linked with other non-Watcom object files.

No problem. BTW, TheFreeCountry is back online and has a nice page on various freeware resource editors: http://www.thefreecountry.com/programming/resourceeditors.shtml
