Resources UDF

640 posts in this topic

have fun so :)

i've been two days on this and no way

i wonder if i have to use EnumResourceTypes before, to find the correct Icon Index after. Dunno.

I Know that AutoIt uses this with guictrlsetimage, that's why it supports icon from exe.

the pptico.exe is installed with office 2000. You have wordico.exe for Word, xlicons.exe for Excel, and so on....

i can't attach the xe (proxy issue in my firm) but you can try this with any exe i think.

ok i've found the problem ...

the problem seems that you have to use loadlibrary and not getmodulehandle for Exe.

i send a new version of your resource get if you permit this ... when it will work correctly

I know about that.

In your previously posted code was LoadLibrary and GetModuleHandle was changed too so I didn't expected problem in this.

But my UDF is intended only for using with AutoIt own EXE file as mentioned in notes in my first post.

i read this but i've forgotten. :) , sorry about that

there was a mistaker in my previous post because i don't use the handle from loadlibrary but from getmodulehandle. Here was the mistake.

for now i have to understand now the RT_GROUP_ICON.

ok here it is :

I've been trying to get this to work, and I'm guessing I've missed something basic. Anyone spot my mistake?

Here is what I have:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_File_Add=.\Images\Button.bmp, bitmap, button_bmp       ; I have verified this is adding the resource

; this is old code that works with the files external of the EXE
;$Button_Std = GUICtrlCreateButton ("", 119, 588, 179, 25,$BS_BITMAP)
;GUICtrlSetImage (-1, ".\Images\Button.bmp")

; This is trying to use this UDF to do the same, but with internal EXE resource
$Button_Std = GUICtrlCreateButton ("", 119, 588, 179, 25,$BS_BITMAP)
$hBmp = _ResourceGet("button_bmp", $RT_BITMAP)
GUICtrlSetImage (-1, $hBmp)

So, anything just jump out at you?

Read carefully my first post

Notes:

* _ResourceSetImageToCtrl() tested only on picture control (probably don't support buttons,labels for now)

Running your include resource.au3 with Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) I think I have discovered a small bug.

In function _ResourceGetAsString the variable $struct is not initialized thus getting global.

I have changed

$struct = DllStructCreate("char[" & $ResSize & "]", $ResPointer)oÝ÷ ÚÚºÚ"µÍØØ[    ÌÍÜÝXÝHÝXÝÜX]J  ][ÝØÚÉ][ÝÈ    [È ÌÍÔÔÚ^H    [È ][Ý×I][ÝË   ÌÍÔÔÚ[

I never used Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) so such kind or bugs (not affecting functionality) may be in more my scripts.

Anyway thanks for pointing to this bug.

I will fix it in the next version of my UDF.

Updated first post:

2007-10-16

- added _ResourcePlaySound() - thanks Larry

- corrected local declaration of $struxt - was problem when Opt("MustDeclareVars",1)

- updated resource_test.au3 and resource.au3 in resource_au3.zip

EDIT:

Here is post from Larry where I got _ResourcePlaySound() code from

I am fairly sure that setting a variable which has not been declared already to some value inside a function does not give it global scope.

Here is a small test

$c = whatisit()

If IsDeclared("g") Then MsgBox(0,'val of $g is ',Eval("g"))

Func whatisit()
    $g = 99
    Return $g
EndFunc

Thanks for underlining it (I haven't tested it, but I do believe you, of course). Anyway, declaring variables as local helps us - the coders - not to confuse us. The compiler may easily check the variables scopes, but we are not as good as it and we always have to assume they are globals if they have not been declared.

Your sample code points out the compiler implementation details, but does not change the need for clarity and for omitting any possible interference with other libraries variables either with our latest project variables.

From my own experience, I believe that globals should be avoided as much as possible, but - when needed, and in many situations we need to declare and use them - it should be always good practice to declare and later discover them at the beginning of the source.

In such a great library they are simply a need to let every function integrate well, silently, with no issue, but their added functionality.

That is why it is important in this case: you (we) will never have unwanted collisions, with no regard to the coding style that can be completely different and preserved.

;) Wooooohooo suuuper, i found what im looking for !!! Now we can add all resources in 1 exe file !!! THATs cool !!! now my programs, cracks, remote control tools will be better :P) BIG THX !!!

only 2 questions:

> can I extract those resources automaticly by autoit ?

> can I add other executables in resources and then something like unpack them ?

I'm happy that you are happy :P

Read carefully ALL my first post.

- there are still some limitations: for example supports only BMP (not JPG,GIF,PNG)

- there are examples what can be done (extraction/use in AutoIt)

resource_test.au3

What should i see hire? all i see is blank Gui, is this the way it should be?

so i dont get it now, this thing writes 1.bmp into my script.exe & when i double click my script.exe then it does not extract that 1.bmp from the exe, but instead reads the 1.bmp from the exe & can display it on the gui?

or when i run this nothing happens:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_File_Add=image1.bmp, bitmap, TEST_BMP_1 ; Filename,Section,ResName
#include "resources.au3"
 
; save binary data from resource to file
_ResourceSaveToFile(@ScriptDir & "\binary_data.dat", "TEST_BIN_1")

You must run all examples only in compiled form (compiled EXE file) and no directly by Run from Scite.

I think it's your case.
