I got the String from PslSourceString.Description. This string contains the resource ID from MFC application. How could I extract this number from this text?
The containing numbers could have 1 to more than 5 digits. Also the text in front of the number is not the same
 E. g. : Zeichenkette 15002 in String Table
Instead of interpreting the
property you can directly access the numerical or alpha-numerical resource ID using
I've troubles to identify my MFC IDs correctly:
How2 get the ID of the checkbox in the dialog? The ID of the MFC container (dialog) is correct with PslSourceString.Resource.IDBut how2 get the ID of the checkbox?
Also in strings...
How2 get the ID of the string?
BTW: PslSourceString.Resource.IDName seems to be always empty.
For standard resources in dialogs like the checkbox please use
In MFC StringTable resources that are internally organized in blocks with 16 entries you have to calculate the ID
If PslSourceString.ResType = "StringTable" Then MsgBox "ID: " & ((PslSourceString.Resource.ID - 1) * 16 + PslSourceString.ID) End If
It is true that PslSourceString.Resource.IDName is empty in binary MFC and other resources, but when parsing the RC file this will be set with the mnemonic name from the RC file. The allows you to have both the numerical ID and the mnemonic ID.
