Hi...I would appreciate some suggestions...here's my problem...
I have an app which used to be a pure OS9 app, created in CW8.
Recently, I've learned the rudiments of carbon, and carbonized the app.
So, now my app runs (relatively) nicely in OSX without needing
Classic/OS9. I say "relatively" nicely, because, though perfectly
functional, it's missing fancy icons (for one) and still looks like an
My carbonized app is really just a single application (like in OS9
days)...all resources are built-in to the app's own file...no package,
no external graphics files, no external icons, no property lists, just
the plain old (but carbonized) app of yesteryear. It works fine, as a
real OSX app, but I call it my "low class app".
I'd like to bring the class, so to speak, of the app up a notch, but
not yet ready to port the whole thing to Apple's new XCode or even the
old Interface Bulider and Project Builder and basically start from
scratch again. Can I add some newer touches (fancier icons, for
instance) to my old-style-but-carbonized app without having to
completely re-do my app so as to use nibs, and project builder and all
that jazz? How would I do that?
I know XCode and/or Project/Interface Builder are in my future for this
app, but I'm looking for a quicker interim step to embellish my
Any suggestions appreciated.
