Custom Resource Files Using Property Bags


Introduction



Have you ever wondered where the icons, pictures, cursors etc. from your forms are stored when Visual Basic isn't open? They are stored in form's .frx-file. All the infomation is stored in binary format using a method called property bags, and you can also use this extremely simple interface to store and extract multiple sources of data.

Text, numbers, boolean values, icons, pictures, fonts - you name it, it can handle them all! It's almost too simple, just read ahead.

Very nice tutorial! I always thought the property bag was for custom controls only. This looks like a nice replacement for .ini files.
