Introduction

Resource control is used to edit the value of resource type data in property group panels.

Usage

There are two types of control that resource control offers:

  • Basic operations, and
  • Perforce operations.

Basic operations

To access basic operations click with LMB.png on the value field of the resource type data you want to edit and the dropdown menu on the right opens.
New
Creates a pointer to a blank set of resource properties.
Info 16x16.png Note: The data type of the edited resource type data defines the resource properties that are created.
Browse
Opens the Obtain some data Dialog that lets you point to a saved resource.
Locate
Opens the Obtain some data Dialog with the resource, that is currently pointed to, highlighted in its folder.
Share/Unshare
Changes the state of the resource, that is currently pointed to, from shared to unshared and vice versa. For more information on shared/unshared resources see Resources.
None
Deletes the current resource pointer.
Save
Saves the resource, that is currently pointed to, under its name. If the resource has not yet been named the Save as Dialog is opened.
Save as...
Opens the Save as Dialog.
Additional
Opens a dropdown menu with Perforce operations (see below).
Templates
Opens the Obtain some data Dialog. The saved resource that is chosen in this dialog will be created as a local resource of the edited resource data.
History → SEd3.5 or higher
To do: Add description.
Recent files
Opens a dropdown menu that contains a list of recently used resources of the required data type.

Perforce (P4) Operations

To access P4 operations click with RMB.png on the value field of the resource data you want to edit and the dropdown menu on the right will open.

Perforce operations are used for multi-user editing of files and need to be set up properly first. They appear to be nonsensical in custom mapping.
