String table resource type




Base abstract resource class




This class represents a resource of type RT_STRING.

A string table is a resource containing strings, identified by an integer id in the range 0-65535. A string table contains exactly 16 strings, and its name is an ID in the range 1-4096, determined by the highest 12 bits of the strings ID it contains, plus one. That is, a string table with 1 as name holds strings with IDs from 0 to 15, string table 2 contains strings with IDs from 16 to 31 and so on. There is no difference between an empty string and a non-existant string.

For these reasons, it is not possible to set the name of a string table: it is autogenerated from the value of FirstID property. Moreover, Count property is always 16.

Strings property is provided to access and modify individual strings.

Remark: This class doesn't allow its type to be changed to anything else than RT_BITMAP. Its name can't be changed too. Attempts to do so result in a EResourceDescChangeNotAllowedException.
