View Full Version : Icons for eVB applications

05-17-2002, 08:03 PM
Hi, after long hours of trying I figured out the following and perhaps it might be interesting to you developers:

If you want to have a custom icon with an eVB application you need to write an eVC application that works as a starter for the eVB application. The eVC application gets the custom icon. Then you need a tool to put it all together. I use IConShip, which works great.

Ok, here comes the problem: the custom icon needs to be an icon ressource that has two icons in it: one 32 x 32 px, 256 colors and one 16 x 16 px, 16 (!) colors.

... I thought that the small icon needed 256 as well, but I was wrong. It took me quite a while to figure that out ... especially as there MUST NOT be another 16 x 16 x 256 icon in the ressource. :wink:

Have fun :-)

Here are a couple of additional resources for accomplishing this.
