Help: Incorperate images with compiled script

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Sorry, i looked all over the place and am quite suprised that i was unable to find any information on this.

Mainly I'm curious as to how i can incorperate images used in the gui with the compilex exe without having the image extracted to a temporary folder for use.

Thx and sorry for the dumb question.

how do you go about making images useable with compiled exes on any machine?

For example place near top of script:

If @Compiled Then
    If Not FileExists(@ScriptDir & "\myimage.gif") Then FileInstall( "myimage.gif", @ScriptDir & "\myimage.gif")
EndIf

SciTE for AutoItDirections for Submitting Standard UDFs

 

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

hrm, if i set the destination of the file to a temp directory and the location of the image to be the temp directory would that work?

how often/when is the temp folder cleaned?

Most definitely -- this is how I handle GUI images in my scripts.

It is best practice to delete this file yourself when your script is exiting:

local $picPath = @tempDir & "\guiPic.bmp"
guiCtrlCreatePic($picPath, ...)
...
fileDelete($picPath)
