Icon Help
« on: July 29, 2009, 06:35:52 am »
Hello I am new to Code Blocks, c++ and Win32 programming. i need help on Icons i have an icon in my project's root folder with a icon named o.ico. in my .rc I typed:

#include "Resource.h"

IDI_main ICON "o.ico"

In my resource file I typed:

#define IDI_main 1000

And in my .cpp file I typed:

..........More code.......
   WndClsEx.hIcon         = WndClsEx.hIconSm       = LoadIcon(hInstance,
                 MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_main));
   WndClsEx.hCursor       = LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_ARROW);
   WndClsEx.hbrBackground = (HBRUSH)GetStockObject(WHITE_BRUSH);
   WndClsEx.lpszMenuName  = NULL;
   WndClsEx.lpszClassName = ClsName;
   WndClsEx.hInstance     = hInstance;
   WndClsEx.hIconSm       = WndClsEx.hIconSm       = LoadIcon(hInstance,
                 MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_main));
..........More code.......
 
But when i compile i get the following:

||warning: `-x c' after last input file has no effect|
||preprocessing failed.|

First of all -> this error is not related to your code. I assume your project setup / compiler options, linker options etc. are mis-configured. Please enable full compiler logging and post the result here (see my sig how to do that).
Compiler logging: Settings->Compiler & Debugger->tab "Other"->Compiler logging="Full command line"

I did what you said and in the build log I got the following message:


-------------- Build: Debug in test ---------------

windres.exe -i C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\Desktop\CTESTS~1\test\1.rc -J rc -o obj\Debug\1.res -O coff -I"C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\C Tests\test\"

gcc: warning: `-x c' after last input file has no effect
gcc: no input files
windres.exe: preprocessing failed.
Process terminated with status 1 (0 minutes, 0 seconds)
1 errors, 1 warnings
  


Is this what you wanted?

P.s. I am using the gcc compiler which is included with the installation package

That's what I wanted. And as you see: You have an issue with spaces in the path. Some resource compilers do *not* support that - as yours.

You now have the following options:
1.) Move your project to a folder without spaces in the path
2.) Update the compiler suite to a more recent one - especially the resource compiler (which depends on the other compilers, to so do *n ot* only update the resource compiler).
3.) In the compiler setup under "other settings" click on the "advanced options". Then select the tab "Others" and enable "force quotes for filenames in compiler command-line", probably the same for the linker.

The latter may not work or even break the compilation, too if not done with care.
