Easy way to get resources form DLL file??

In what easy way get files like .jpg ; .ico ; .png from DLL file??

I'm looking something like:

$image_jpg_file_1 = _get_file_from_dll("abcd.dll","1")

Ofcourse I know that it will be not so easy but...

If you use Zedna's Resources UDF, which you can find here, it is surprisingly easy! ;)

However, you MUST read the thread carefully and play with the examples - the UDF is powerful, but you must use the right syntax, etc or it will not work as you expect.

Go and play with the examples that Zedna has provided and came back if you have problems.


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

Minimizing it into something similar to:

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

Local $hGUI, $Pic, $sDll, $hIcon, $hInst

; ...
$Pic = GUICtrlCreateIcon($sDll, 20, 10, 10, 32, 32) ; The 21th icon index

; Similar to
$hInst = _WinAPI_LoadLibrary($sDll)
$hIcon = _WinAPI_LoadImage($hInst, 20, $IMAGE_ICON, 0, 0, $LR_DEFAULTSIZE)
GUICtrlSendMsg($Pic, 0x0170, $hIcon, 0)
