Visual Studio Resource Editor Bugs

    Help! I'm an undergraduate doing an MFC assignment using Visual
    Studio 7 and the resource editor has suddenly starting doing strange
    stuff. I created a number of new menu items, and the Resource.h file
    now contains #define statements for them that just don't work, for
    instance:

    #define ID_EDIT_INCR 0
    #define ID_EDIT_ADD 0

    All new Menu IDs are given the value of 0 instead of 130 or whatever
    they should be. Does some intelligent person out there know why this
    is happening, how I can stop it from continuing, or how I can find out
    what values they SHOULD be so I can manually change the values in the
    Resource.h file? I can't ask my tutor because it's the weekend and I
    can't continue work on my assignment until I get this fixed. I've
    searched Google archives for hours and can't find anything of use.

    Thanks in advance for any help that is offered.

    Rowena.

    This is off-topic. I suggest you post in

    microsoft.public.vc.language or
    microsoft.public.vc.mfc

    (there are newgroups focussing specifically on the IDE or resource-editor
    but there is not much activity on them).

    For what it is worth, I would suggest deleting and re-creating your .rc file
    and resource.h and, if that fails, doing the same for the entire project
    (while preserving the non-resource source files of course). Apparently
    something has become corrupted and I don't like your chances of fixing it by
    any other means.

    Sorry for posting this off topic. I'm not accustomed to using
    newsgroups for study-related purposes, and there are so many groups
    around that I didn't know which one(s) to post to. Thanks for
    pointing me in the right direction.

    I'd already tried your suggestions above with no success. I even
    re-installed Visual Studio but have the same error. There must be
    something I've not done right. I have reposted to the relevent groups
    and hopefully will receive some useful advice. Failing that, it's a
    trip into uni to see the tutor tomorrow.

    Thanks for your help, John.

    Rowena.
