RESDIR Overview  Group

The RESDIR structure contains information about an individual icon or cursor component in a resource group. There is one RESDIR structure for each group component.

typedef struct tagRESDIR 




        ICONRESDIR   Icon; 

        CURSORDIR    Cursor; 

    } ResInfo; 

    WORD    Planes; 

    WORD    BitCount; 

    DWORD   BytesInRes; 

    WORD  IconCursorId; 




Specifies an ICONRESDIR structure that contains the width, height, and color count of the indicated icon.
Specifies a CURSORDIR structure that contains the width and height of the indicated cursor.
Specifies the number of color planes in the icon or cursor bitmap.
Specifies the number of bits per pixel in the icon or cursor bitmap.
Specifies the size of the resource, in bytes.
Specifies the icon or cursor with a unique ordinal identifier.


One or more RESDIR structures immediately follow the NEWHEADER structure in the .RES file. The ResCount member of the NEWHEADER structure specifies the number of RESDIR structures. Note that the RESDIR structure consists of either an ICONRESDIR structure or a CURSORDIR structure followed by the Planes, BitCount, BytesInRes and IconCursorId members. If the RESDIR structure contains information about a cursor, the first two WORDS the resource compiler writes to the RT_CURSOR resource are the xHotSpot and yHotSpot members of the LOCALHEADER structure.
