Any .rc resource script Editor recommendation for non-VS IDE?

Do you have a question about makefiles, a compiler or IDE you are using and need to know how to set it up for wxWidgets or why it doesn't compile but other IDE's do ? Post your questions here.

Any .rc resource script Editor recommendation for non-VS IDE?

Post by tomay3000 » Sun Sep 12, 2021 10:22 pm

Hello,
I need a good ".rc" resource script Editor for non-VS IDE?

I have used "ResEdit" but it is constantly crashing, also I found out that it has been classified as PUA by many antivirus scanners.

I also tried "Resource Hacker", but it messed up the resulting ".rc" file after saving it (e.g. if I create ".png" files inside a "res" folder it will recreate all these files in the root directory ignoring all the created sub-folders and rename all these ".png" files to ".bin" ones and convert all the filenames to UPPERCASE) and this is very annoying.

If anybody has a good experience working with ".rc" files, please share it with me.

And BTW, how was "wx.rc" created!? using a tool or just a text editor, because when using the later, you have to remember all the ".rc" definitions.

TIA.

Hi,
What kind of resources you want to edit?
And what IDE, if any you are using?

Thank you.

I want to edit an .rc file to embed some resources like ICO, CUR, PNG, JPEG in the EXE file under windows using Code::Blocks.

This is trivial to do with a text editor. I don't think you need a dedicated resource editor for that.

I know, but to avoid any errors when typing, I thought of using a dedicated resource editor for that.
But if wx.rc has been created/edited by just a text editor like Notepad++ or Sublime text editor or even the IDE editor, then I will go this way too.

Thank you.
