     Hmmm, another one for usercontrol lovers maybe. I wanted a way for a UC to get the resources from a host's RES file during IDE. This way the UC can use host images and display them during design time. The biggest problem was parsing the res file, the 2nd biggest problem is being able to access it during IDE design, IDE Run, and Compiled all from a UC and not the host. For a UC during IDE, you would need to have a way for the user to supply you the path to their RES file and, in a few days, I will be posting an example of that along with other methods too. The functions in the attached class allow image resources to be extracted as stdPictures or arrays -- this way I can use my c32bppDIB class with it too :)

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
