Description

TShellResources provides forward compatibility for programs that use system animations in Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Windows Vista or Windows 7 shell animations are no longer accessible outside of the system; programs must now store local copies of these animations instead of linking to them as was done in the past.

Placing TShellResources onto a form copies the following system animation resources into the program:

  • CopyFile.res
  • CopyFiles.res
  • DeleteFile.res
  • EmptyRecycle.res
  • FindComputer.res
  • FindFiles.res
  • FindFolder.res
  • RecycleFile.res

TShellResources should only be used in programs that are run on Vista and Windows 7 and use animations from the common library; otherwise, this function adds unneeded overhead.
