NTLK PROG Q: how to display PICT resource

  I want to import a PICT resource as a SHAPE, for use with HitShape.
I've got the following commands in the Project Data file:

DefConst('kPicture, GetNamedResource("PICT", "mapBw", 'picture));

Then in a viewClickScript, I call DrawShape(kPicture,<style frame>), and
at run-time it gives me a an error -8804, which the Inspector says is
evt.ex.graf. I assume this means I can't display a 'picture object from
a resource using DrawShape?

  BTW, the project this is for is a version of Quickwriting for the Newton.
