Changing the Names of Symbol Header Files

 

For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017, see Visual Studio 2017 Documentation.

For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017, see Changing the Names of Symbol Header Files on docs.microsoft.com. Normally all symbol definitions are saved in Resource.h. However, you may need to change this include filename so that you can, for example, work with more than one resource file in the same directory.

To change the name of the resource symbol header file

  1. In Resource View, right-click your .rc file and choose Resource Includes from the shortcut menu.

    If your project doesn't already contain an .rc file, please see Creating a New Resource Script File.

  2. In the Symbol header file box, type the new name for the include file.

For information on adding resources to managed projects, please see Resources in Applications in the .NET Framework Developer's Guide.
