What is an SBRES file?
An SBRES file is a resource file created by LitDev, an extension for the Microsoft Small Basic programming language. It contains binary data used to add resources to a Small Basic program. SBRES files are typically named for the program they are used with. For example, a Small Basic program named ExampleApp.exe may use an SBRES file named ExampleApp.sbres.
Microsoft Small Basic is a programming language designed to help students transition from block-based coding to text-based coding. LitDev is a Small Basic extension that provides additional objects and classes programmers can add to their Small Basic programs.
LitDev's LDResources class allows a developer to save their program's resources, including ImageList images, all audio files played with Sound.Play, and other resource files, in one binary file. That file is named ProgramName.sbres. The SBRES file is then used to load the program's resources when the program is executed as an .EXE file. SBRES files are typically stored in a Small Basic program's root directory, alongside their associated EXE file.
How to open an SBRES file
SBRES files are not meant to be opened. If you need to adjust the resources included in an SBRES file, you should open the project that created the SBRES file in Microsoft Small Basic (Windows) with the LitDev extension installed. Then, you can edit your program's LDResources class, before recompiling the program.
