I want to know how to load a ressource from a DLL created with Delphi 3.
For example, with the TAnimate control I want to load a .AVI from my DLL.

Hi!

To load resources you must use the LoadLibrary function to create a handle to the dll. And then read the AVI file.

If you didn't understand just leave me a comment.

Can't you get it with LoadResource?

It seems to work but it takes the resource from it's own executable.

Try this (haven't tested it! Just a guess!) :

 DllHandle := LoadLibrary({name.dll});

And use this DllHandle with

 AviHandle := LoadResource(DllHandle, {....});

Have fun,
