How to create a .RES file?

Hi Experts.

I am trying to use cursors that I have created but I am having a hard time to find out how to create the RESOURCE file (.RES) needed to use them. I use Delphi 5.
Can you help me out?

Thanks!

Hello.

I'm not sure about Delphi, but Builder is just about the same and there - I would try the following:

res files are basically compiled .rc files - which can contain lines like:

CURSOR  DISCARDABLE     "help.cur"

So - what I would do in Builder is to make such a file, add some entries like the one above and add it to the project for compilation. Then - try LoadCursor.
If that is N/A try to look for other file types for Pascal in the Delphi directory that contain such entries.

Hope this helps.

In Delphi res-compiler is brcc32.exe. Just launch him with one parameter - name of your rc-file :
brcc32 rc_file.rc
