Title: Where to download the Pelles resource editor ?
Post by: vmars316 on July 04, 2012, 11:46:42 pm
Greetings,
Where can I download the Pelles resource editor.
Is there a diff between dialogEditor and resourceEditor?
Is there also a resource hacker?
Thanks...vm

Greetings,

FAIK, there is no separate downlad, it's part of Pelle's C IDE...

Don't know what exactly you are asking but a dialog is just one of many possible types of resources...

Ralf is correct... the resource editor is an inegral part of Pelles C IDE (POIDE).  If you have Pelles C, you have the resource editor... look in the help file.

As for Resource Hacker that's a separate program ... you can download it HERE (http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/)

If you want a program to change resources of an EXE, DLL, RES, ...
You can do this with the IDE (poide.exe). Open an EXE, change the resources and save it again. ;)

Pelles Resource Tab:
Wow what a great program.
I didn't realize this was available
Tinkering with this should keep me busy for a while.

Is there a way to keep the 'Resource' tab always visible?
I have trouble finding it.

Thanks...Vernon

No.  It opens automatically when you load a .dll, .exe or .res file or when you do New -> Resources to create from scratch.  ( It may have problems loading some RC files, though. )

Mind if I ask what you're using it for?

Ummm... the IDE is named POIDE  and it includes a lot more than resource tools...
I trust you know that you have a complete windows developer system there.

Good luck with C... if you have any problems or questions, post them up in the Beginner's section and we'll see what we can do to help you along...

:D Get thee into the help file! :D

Seriously... you need to take a long look around in the help file... You have a complete build system for x86 and AMD64 console and GUI programs, complete with a compiler, linker, all resource editors, source editors... everything you need.
