I was working on a project some days ago and I fall into a trap. Then I forgot to ask here until now.
I need to put a folder (with images) into the application before running it
I cannot run the application in the IDE because these files are not there. I can add them after the Standalone is built, but annoyin to do that so many times an hour.
I looked at the pdfs (documentation)
I do not found something useful.
Any idea on how I can write a script that copy the folder (and its childs
images) into the application at build time ?
This have to be done for OS X and Windows (Linux too, eventually).
Use IDE copyfiles script. Menu>Insert>Build Step>Copyfiles
You can use separate CopyFiles per platform.
While running the debugbuild, they’re stored on a different path, obviously.
Post the debugbuild path of the pictures into the source code.
if DebugBuild then
f=GetFolderItem("").Child("vb Intel Stuff").Child(app.pictpath).Child("Main").child("EckeVorneDunkel.gif")
f=GetFolderItem("").child("Abandoned Castle.app").Child("vb Intel Stuff").Child(app.pictpath).Child("Main").child("EckeVorneDunkel.gif")
Alexander, Detler: Thank you !
I do not had the idea to search there !!! I will explorate that this afternoon
