Image in GUI loaded from resource of executable

Recommended Posts


I am beginner in AutoIT. I tried create some functional scripts.

Now I want to create program with GUI. I tested SampleControls.au3.

The problem is that image is loaded from external file.  

GUICtrlCreatePic("logo.gif", 0, 0, 120, 284)

I read wiki, tried google, but nothing relevant I did not find.

My question: Is it possible to load image from resource of executable (new created .exe from .au3 script)?

If yes, please give me link to wiki or write me, how can I do it.

I can see it in recource of another programs.

I know this thread is old, but I'm having trouble getting things working the UDF. I made sure I have the full version of SciTE and AutoIT3Wrapper.

I tested with the first sample script (as-is with a specific image defined) that sets the jpg to the resource, then sets GUICtrlCreatePic to "" and pulls with _ResourceSetImageToCtrl.  

Resource Hacker is showing TEST_JPG_1 in the file,  but when I run the compiled exe it returns  Error: Subscript used on non-accessible variable.

Any idea what the issue could be?

If you use latest version of AutoIt then use updated ResourcesEx UDF (link is in my signature and also at end of my original topic/thread).

My original Resources UDF works with older versions of AutoIt and is not updated/improved.
