Native UG Bitmaps

Native UG Bitmaps

Hi guys,

can you somewhere extract the native UG bitmaps?
I want to tweak one of the bitmaps, but I cannot find these native UG bitmaps.
I find in the .tbr files these bitmap names, but the location of them??

Working in UG NX 4.0.4 for this moment.



RE: Native UG Bitmaps

They are hard-coded into the software.  If you want to copy one, just do a screen capture with the toolbar open and paste into MS Paint or whatever you'll be using as your .bmp editor.  Crop the image down to whatever size of icons you're using on your toolbars.

RE: Native UG Bitmaps

If you can wait until Wednesday, I can upload a copy of the NX 4 bitmaps to the GTAC scratch area (I'm working from a hotel in the U.P. of Michigan on a wifi connection that is really slow but I'll be back in mm office on Wednesday if you can wait that long).  I also have copies of the NX 5 and NX 6 bitmaps which I can upload for anyone who would like them as well.

RE: Native UG Bitmaps

Thanks for this, the Helpdesk already mentioned these where embedded in some .dll file, and didn't knew how to extract them.
So I would appreciate this much John!

PS. NX5 and NX6 bitmaps are welcome as well...



RE: Native UG Bitmaps

OK, I've uploaded the NX bitmaps for NX 4, NX 5 and NX 6.

They can be found, at least for the next couple of days, in the GTAC 'scratch' area.  The file names are in the following format:

Just replace the '4' with the version number you desire and the '24x24' with the size desired.  Note that for NX 4 there are only three sizes available, 24, 32 and 48, while with NX 5 and NX 6 there are four, 16, 24, 32 and 48.

Anyway, have fun.
