SuperCard FAQ

How do I get SuperCard to recognize stuff in my project's resource fork?

The resource fork of a SuperCard project does not open by default. This decision is based on a limitation within the Mac OS which sets a limit on the number of resource forks which can be open at any given time. For this reason, many common resource types, such as ICON and XCMD resources, are stored in the data fork using SuperCard internal resource management.

But the resource fork of a project can still be accessed. All you need to do it be sure to call the statement "open resources" in any project in which you will be using item from the resource fork.

Note: It is usually a good practice to have your project call "close resource" in its closeProject handler, to avoid potential conflicts with other resources.
