Custom Control_IDs?

Post by Semmel »

Hi there,
I was wondering whether I could assign Control_ID constants to the controls I dropped on a dialog.
E.g. I like to define a constant for a button IDC_BUTTON_OK.
In my code I Just include a definition header file which contains
#define IDC_BUTTON_OK 101
to use it in function calls as following:
GetDlgItem(hWndParent, IDC_BUTTON_OK)
or
switch (msg)
{
case WM_COMMAND:
if (id == IDC_BUTTON_OK)
// button clicked
}

However with resource builder I just managed to created .rc files with numbers as IDs. Maybe I am missing a point, but to scatter numbers through my code is a nightmare. This way Resource builder is no help to me. Otherwise I like the editor.

Hi,

This feature is not implemented yet, but we're working under it and hope it will be available in new version.

Hi Isiticov,
thanks for the quick reply!
Just to explain my situation: My Visual Studio 2005 Beta2 runs out on May 1st, so I am forced to make a choice between using the free Visual C++ Express together with Resource Builder or go spend approx $ 300 more and buy Visual Studio 2005 Standard. With the 50% discount on Resource Builder there is certainly an alternative since the extra things of Studio Standard, except the Resource designer, like ATL, C#, Basic, MFC.. are not particulary of interest to me.
Concluding, do you have any vague idea when this version you write of will approximately be released ?

Best regards
Semmel

Hi Semmel,

Unfortunately, I can't tell you any ETA now. So I would say: "when it will be ready" (C) Dont_Remember_Who.
Best regards,
