|4.4 Resource View|
Resources are files that can be used in the delivery of a problem, such as images, to better communicate the problem. Some great examples of the usefulness of this feature include uploading circuit diagrams or force diagrams to the problem statement. Resources must be loaded into the Resources View before they can be used in the problem. To create a new resouce, click "New" below the "Resources" list and type a name into the "Name" field. The new item can either be used as a resource or as a folder to organise resources. To create a folder, select "folder" from the "Kind" selection field and click update. To create new resources within this folder, select the folder and click "Create" and name the resource. Then type the file path into the "Upload" field or click the "Browse" button to open a file-browsing window from which the desired file may be selected. Click "Update" to complete the creation of the resource.
To reference an image resource that is not within a subfolder of the "Problems" folder, the following line of code may be inserted: "(IMG style="WIDTH: 200px; HEIGHT: 193px" src="Dynamic/Resources/Problem/BLARG" align=left>". Here, the width and height of the image resource (named "BLARG") upon delivery will be 200 pixels and 193 pixels respectively and the image will be aligned to the left side of the delivery display. The alignment statement may be left out if no alignment is desired. For a more detailed explanation, see HTML documentation.HTML Inline Image Documentation
