       resourceEditor  -  Resource  editor  used as part of the PythonCard GUI


       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 application.

       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

       -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

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