01/30/2004 VB TechMail

by cedpm In reply to Visual Basic Forum

For those wishing to learn more about using LoadResData in a resource file to play a WAV file, an excellent article details how to accomplish this.

Perform a Google search on the term "RS21980" and looked at the CACHED result with the title "How to store/retrieve .wav files in .res files." If you click on the active link to the site (and not the cached link), you will receive numerous pop-up ads but no article. (It seems the web site is no longer available.)

I tested the instructions in the article and it works great.

Unfortunately, that question reads much like other, more formal specifications that I've read. After reading it, and re-reading it, I'm not sure what the spec is.

It *appears* that the developer wants to create an application that produces a false login screeen - and captures the users' login info for other sites. That would be exeptionally unethical and probably illegal.

It would, however, be very simple to do... so the answer to the question is to start learning how to program GUI's with VB.
