How to create Resource file for ProToolkit Application?

Hello,

     I have created a resource file from my Visual studio make file project, it saving with the format (.rc) and it not working with toolkit application.

I also tried with some third party applications (ResEdit, Resource Hacker) which produces (.res) files but it also not working with CREO Toolkit.

Anybody help me to to create resource file in (.res) format.

In pro/toolkit .res file background is different when compared with generic applications in visualstudio.

In toolkit it follwed a special syntax followed in order to create user inerface (GUI) for applications.File to be placed under 'text' folder in resource directory.

.res file name to be linked in toolkit code for Dialog API's to work with.If any error in .res file dialog can not be dislays in creo session,it does not give any error returns.

Follow any sample applications by PTC you can understand in detail.I recommend geardesign smple is best one to start even it is hard to follow but it has all the required info to know.

Hope this can help to work further.

regards,
