Icon Reader Utility

By Ms. Jean Thomas, Swarthmore, PA

Getting Application Icons

Whenever I receive a number of new programs, one of the things I most look forward to is seeing the new icons. Normally this would require a trip to the Finder, but even there you can’t see any related document icons until you open the application and create a file (or use ResEdit). If you don’t happen to have 120k free on your disk, you can use this little IconApp utility to view application and document icons.

Even though every application on the Desktop has an icon, applications that haven’t been ‘bundled’ or set up to display a specific icon (along with other information) take on a generic application icon which is stored in the Finder. Applications which have been bundled and have a file reference number, used by the Finder to associate applications with their icons (BNDL and FREF), can have a unique icon on the Desktop. The Finder copies the file’s icons into the destkop file and keeps track of each icon set per each file creator tag. Thus if another applicaton is loaded with the same creator as a previous application, it’s icon will change to the wrong icon on the desktop. This is why creator tags must be unique. Also, the deskto never forgets, so even if you have a unique creator tag, it may be necessary to force the Finder to rebuild the desktop file by holding down the cmd-option keys during a re-boot. This program opens an application’s resource fork and displays the program’s bundled icons in a small dialog box.

An icon is a quickdraw object that is defined as a small 128 byte bitmap four bytes wide living in a small rectangle 32 by 32. In our program we define a bitmap to hold the icon as follows:

iconmap:  dc.l   ; pointer to bit image base address
 dc.w ; integer of row bytes (4)
 dc.w ; rect  top 0
 dc.w ; rect left 0
 dc.w ; rect bottom 32
 dc.w ; rect right 32

We read in the icons and store them in our iconmap, then call PlotIcon to display them in our dialog box.

Getting access to the icons of an application requires that we open its resource fork. Given a filename, _OpenResFile returns the file reference number of the selected file. In order to simplify things, I used the standard file reply dialog to get ‘rname+appreply’ or a filename from the dialog reply record. _OpenResFile also returns -1 to the stack if an error occurred in opening the resource file, such as ‘no resource file’,etc. Normally you would call _ResError to check for the specific error code if anything went wrong, but since we are only dealing with applications, I skipped that step. Unless the file has been corrupted, every application will have a resource fork with at least one resource of type ‘CODE’. In the event of corruption, however, IconApp will simply beep and return. One important thing to remember is that _OpenResFile assumes that the resource file to be opened resides on the default volume, so we have to get the volume reference number from the sfreply record before opening any resource first.

SearchIcon
     clr     -(SP)     ; room for resource file ref num
     lea     rname+appreply,A1    ; get filename
     move.l  A1,-(SP)
     _OpenResFile                 ; open resource file 
     move    (SP),D7              ; D7=refnum
     cmpi    #-1,D7               ; error?(no resources)
     bne     ValidName            ; no,get filename
     bra     NoRez                ; yes,beep and return

Once we know the application has a resource fork, its time to look for any icons. Given a resource type, ‘ICN#’ in this case, _CountResources will return the total number of resources in the chosen file. Applications with unique icons always have at least one ‘ICN#’ resource, but larger applications often have file or document icons as well.

ValidName
    CheckDItem    #3              ; get statictext handle
    move.l   theItem(A5),-(SP)   
    pea      rname+appreply       ; get our filename
    _SetIText                     ; print it in dialog
    clr      -(SP)                ; room for # of icons
    move.L   #’ICN#’,-(SP)        ; resource type
    _CountResources 
    move     (SP),D5        ; get # of icons in file
    subq     #2,D5
    cmpi     #1,D5          ; is there at least one icon?
    blt      NoIcon         ; no, say so
    bra      DoIcon         ; otherwise,prepare to plot it

At the beginning of IconApp, the handle of a generic icon bitmap was stored in A4. If an application doesn’t have an ‘ICN#’ resource, both the filename and the generic icon will be plotted in our dialog box.

Since the total number of icons in the selected application was stored in D5, creating a loop to plot each icon is straight forward. D6 will be an index to the next plotted icon. Any application which has reached this point will contain at least one ‘ICN#’ resource, so D6 is initialized to 1. _GetIndResource can be used to call a number of resources consecutively, so passing D6 and a resource type to _GetIndResource returns a handle to the resource. Each time an icon is plotted, the index to the last icon is compared to the total number of resources in the file. I only included frames for three icons, so if the last plotted icon is not the third one, D6 is incremented and we return to plot the next one. The reference number of the most recently opened resource file was saved in D7 when the file was first opened, so we pass that same refnum to _CloseResFile before dealing dealing with another application.

Fig.1: Reply Record Equates

In order to draw both a generic icon and any icon resources in an application, I used _BlockMove (register-based), where A0 points to a source, A1 points to a destination and D0 is the number of bytes to transfer from one rectangle to another. In this case, A0 is a handle to the icon and A1 points to a 128-byte bitmap which will hold the icon. Since we want the entire icon, D0 contains 128. In order to transfer the icon bit map to the screen, we call _Ploticon which will draw the icon in a pre-specified rectangle in the dialog box.

MACRO       IconDraw     IRect    =
       clr.l      -(SP) 
       move.L     #’ICN#’,-(SP)  
       move       D6,-(SP)
       _GetIndResource 
 
       move.l     (SP),A0 
       movea.l    (A0),A0
       cmpa.l     #0,A0 
       beq        CloseRez

       lea        iconmap,A1
       movea.l    (A1),A1
       move.l     #128,D0
       _BlockMove  

       pea        {IRect}
       lea        iconmap,A1
       move.l     A1,-(SP)
       _PlotIcon

_BlockMove is a useful way to transfer bitmap images to the screen. It is also a neat way to achieve flicker-free animation without resorting to the dreaded alternate screen buffer.

User Notes

IconApp is a very simple application, but it demonstrates how to use bitmaps and manipulate resource files effectively. Using the program is easy: just click on the ‘Icons’ button and select a file in the normal way. Both the application and document icons of the selected file, along with the application name, will be printed out in the dialog box. IconApp will search for and draw up to three icons in the frames.

Some corrupted applications which have been bundled and have a unique icon will appear on the Desktop with a generic icon. IconApp will plot the correct icon in the icon frames instead of the one that appears in the Finder. This is because it reads the icon from the application file and not the desktop file, so even if two applications have the same file creator tag, our utility will display the proper icon.
