Embedding images for runtime use

Recommended Posts

FileInstall lets you embed a file—an image, for example—and deploy/install it at runtime for use by the script.  I use it often.

But I recall reading months ago about a way to embed an image and then use it directly ... without ever placing it on the runtime directory.

Am I remembering right?  (I've been unable to find such a post.)

Thanks in advance for any help.

Or perhaps Zedna's Resources UDF? :)

Open spoiler to see 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

Thanks to you both.

I found what I need (at this point) in the very first Resources UDF example.  But the Base64 String Code Generator looks very interesting and might well be the answer for the longer term.  I'll put on my R&D cap for a while.
