Some dialogs have a bitmap on the left-hand side. I want to replace this bitmap with my own. So I add a new string ID called "BITMAP_PATH" that holds the file path to the bitmap: BITMAP_PATH="d:\setup\mybmp.bmp".
Now I want ALL relevant dialogs to use this string ID as their bitmap's file path, so that if I have to change this path tomorrow, I will only have to modify the path in one place (the string table).
So I browse all dialogs and look for those with the left-hand side bitmap. I click on the FileName property of the bitmap and choose "string table", then "browse" and then the "BITMAP_PATH" string ID. I click Select and then OK. The file path appears in the "FileName" property.
NOW: I *leave* the dialog and do something else. I go BACK to the dialog and the FileName property returns to what it was before. Also, sometimes the FileName property is OK, but whe I click on it to modify it, I see it has returned to be a "file system" property, and not a "string table" one.
What's going on?
