Returns pointer to a named raw resource.

void *GetResource(
  const char *name,
  int resgroup = 0


Raw resource name.
Resource group identificator.

Return value

If successful, returns pointer to the raw resource in memory. Otherwise returns 0.


You could use the name defined in the resource script or just a plain file name, either absolute or relative to the application folder or resource package root.

If the resource hasn't been loaded yet, it will be loaded. Otherwise pointer to the existing object will be returned.

The resgroup parameter is only used if you specify plain file name. When loading resources defined in resource script, resgroup is taken from the script. Use the value passed here with Purge to free the resource. If =0 or omitted - no specific group will be assigned to the recource.
