Description

This function does not do anything in Vectorworks 2015 and later. This is because the resource system changed. See more at: Vectorworks VWR Resources

As of Vectorworks 2015, resources are accessed directly by specifying full resource path (resource identifier) and using VS:GetVWRString

Pre Vectorworks 2015: Sets the active resource file for a script. The resource file is opened for the duration of script execution.

The name of the resource file should be specified without the file extension.

FUNCTION SetVSResourceFile(
fileName  :STRING) : BOOLEAN;
def vs.SetVSResourceFile(fileName):
    return BOOLEAN

Parameters

fileName STRING The name of the resource file to be opened.

Return Value

A BOOLEAN value indicating the success of the file open operation.

Remarks

Specify the file name without an extension. However, the file must exist in the plug-ins folder WITH an extension. Use .rsr on Windows and .rsrc on the Mac.
