The following sample files are required by this example and can be found in this zip file, under the \Dialog Builder\TempConv subfolder.
Open Watcom project file.
Open Watcom target file.
Open Watcom resource script file.
Open Watcom source file.
Origin C workspace file.
Origin C source file for handling the dialog.
Header file containing IDs for the dialog and its controls. This is used both by Open Watcom and by Origin C.
It is possible to open a resource in Origin created using a resource editor/compiler other than Microsoft Visual C++. The topics in this section describe how to build a Dialog Builder resource using Open Watcom C/C++ v1.2 and access it in Origin with Origin C. The following sample files are shipped with Origin and can be compiled by Open Watcom C/C++ to create a resource-only DLL that is accessible in Origin. The Open Watcom C/C++ software is not owned or distributed by OriginLab Corporation. To find out more about Open Watcom C/C++ and to download a copy please visit http://www.openwatcom.org/.
Follow the steps below to build a Temperature Converter DLL using Open Watcom C/C++.
A resource-only DLL named TempConv.DLL is created in the same folder as the sample files. See the next topic Accessing an Open Watcom Resource-only DLL with Origin C to learn how to open and access the resource in Origin.
