ResOrg 2.0 update

Thursday 15th December, 2011

We released a new beta of ResOrg 2.0 this morning. This one has a new and slightly more up to date look and feel than its predecessors, as you can probably see from the screenshot below:

One small but significant improvement is the ability to renumber IDs in the .mfcribbon-ms files used by the Visual Studio 2010 Ribbon Designer:

If the value of a symbol which appears in a .mfcribbon-ms file associated with the same .rc file is changed, ResOrg will now automatically update the contents of the .mfcribbon-ms file when the symbol file is saved.

The symbol highlighted in yellow above is an example - if you change the value of IDB_BUTTONS in the left hand pane and the save the file, the corresponding value in the ribbon.mfcribbon-ms file will be updated automatically and the IDE will then prompt you to reload the ribbon.mfcribbon-ms file.

We still have a handful of things to change in ResOrg 2.0 before releasing it publicly, but it's now just about there.
