Joe,

I don't understand something:
on MACOS 9, to add new file type (like "****" to indicate "all files") you
have to add (complete) resources fork named "BNDL" : 129, 130,...
On MACOS X, the logical is different : the resource "plst" contains plenty
of file's information like file's type.

is it possible to update automatically the "plst" for MACOS X during a build
? (specially add new files type inside)

Thanx,


Dominik Fusina
Captain of NEMO

Right.

Well, it's different in that this information is in the plist rather
than the BNDL resource, yes.

Yes, that's exactly what happens.

But How to do that ?
Could you quickly explain me, because it doesn't work for me.
The plst contains all datas by default.
Perhaps I made a mistake.

I would like to update automaticaly the type "****" into my MACOSX app...

Thanx,

I'm sorry, I don't understand what you mean. The file types put into
your plst resource are exactly the same ones put into the BNDL
resource, i.e., the types defined in your File Types dialog with the
Icon checkbox checked.

HTH,

OK !
I understand now. The Icon checkbox wasn't checked.
Sorry for the disturbing.
