About {$R *.res}...
« on: October 03, 2008, 09:56:27 pm »
Hi All,

To polish my application (WinCE, KOL-CE) I wanted to add an icon to the executable.

I was suggested to create a resource-file in Delphi, add a Mainicon to it and copy the res-file in my application source dir.

After that, I inserted a {$R *.res} in the .lpr et voila, after compiling my app showed a beautiful icon.

But... after quitting and restarting Lazarus and opening my project-file, the IDE outcomments the resourcce-directive :

{$R *.res} becomes
//{$R *.res}

It looks like using a resourcefile this way is allowed by the compiler (2.2.0) but not allowed by the IDE?

I would suggest that you ask this in the lazarus mailling list.
