       resourceEditor - Resource editor used as part of the PythonCard GUI framework


       resourceEditor [file] [switches]


       The  resourceEditor  is  the  most  common  starting  point  for constructing a PythonCard
       application. Using this tool, you can create, position, size,  describe  and  connect  not
       only  your  application's windows and all of the components they contain (buttons, fields,
       and other controls), but also its menus  and  supporting  dialogs.  A  direct-manipulation
       interface  enables  you to create, drag, and size window components in the grand tradition
       of Integrated Development Environments (IDEs). The resourceEditor also incorporates a menu
       editor  and a background editor for managing the non-component portions of your PythonCard

       Scripting is not integrated  into  the  resourceEditor.   Instead,  you  should  use  your
       favorite  Python  script  editor  to  write  the  code  that  gives  your  application its
       intelligence and behavior (for instance, you could use codeEditor(1),  also  part  of  the
       PythonCard GUI framework).


       Note that switches must come after any filename in order to be recognized.

       -p     Show property editor

       -m     Show message watcher

       -l     Enable logging

       -s     Show shell

       -m     Show namespace

       -d     Show debug menu


       The resourceEditor utility also provides additional functionality that is not discussed in
       this manpage, because it is somewhat difficult to  completely  describe  usage  of  a  GUI
       program  in  a  text-based  manpage.   For  more  detailed  usage instructions or for more
       information on the PythonCard GUI framework in general, you should install the pythoncard-
       doc  package  and take a look at the various walk-throughs, tutorials and samples included
       with it.

       Once  the  pythoncard-doc  package  is  installed,  the  documentation  is  installed   to
       /usr/share/doc/pythoncard-doc,  and is also available via Debian's doc-base infrastructure
       - find it in the Devel section using dwww(1), doc-central(1) or dhelp(1).

       If you would rather not install the pythoncard-doc package, you can find  essentially  the
       same information on the PythonCard website:


       Although it is considered to be stable, this is still development-level software.

       Please  report  bugs in this or any PythonCard component to the Debian Bug Tracking system
       using reportbug(1).
