Can't Find References For FEZ Cobra Resources.GetBytes and Resources.BinaryResources.xxxxx


I can’t seem to find the references for Resources.GetBytes or Resources.BinaryResource anywhere for my FEZ Cobra. I see all kinds of examples referencing these two methods, but have not found a name space or reference for them. I’ve included the following name spaces:

using System.IO;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading;

using Microsoft.SPOT;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Input;
using Microsoft.SPOT.IO;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Net.NetworkInformation;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation.Controls;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation.Media;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Touch;
using System;

using FastloadMedia.NETMF;
using FastloadMedia.NETMF.Hardware;
using FastloadMedia.NETMF.Net.Http;
//using FastloadMedia.NETMF.Crypto;

using GHIElectronics.NETMF.FEZ;
using GHIElectronics.NETMF.Hardware;
using GHIElectronics.NETMF.Native;

And all associated references. But nothing works. Where am I missing the boat?

Pretty sure its under .Native?

RLP class.

These methods are generated depending on the types of resources you have.

I’ve included BMP resources so I can load them and VS cannot find any references.

You don’t need to add a reference or a namespace as long as the namespace in your main Program class and in your Resource class match.

Are you getting compiler errors?

Yes, I;m getting the two following errors:

Error 1 ‘FEZ_Cobra_Web_Server.Resources’ does not contain a definition for ‘GetBytes’
Error 2 ‘FEZ_Cobra_Web_Server.Resources’ does not contain a definition for ‘BinaryResources’

I can’t seem to find the definitions

You need to add a binary resource using Resource editor. VS will generate the missing code. I believe there is a whole section in the beginners guide that has more details on that.

I’ve added several BMP image files to the resource editor.

Look in your Resources.Designer.cs file.

Are trying some code example? BMP files are treated differently. Create something like “test.bin” and try to add it.
