    assign icon to forms in VB 6.0

    hi,

    How do i assign icons to forms in VB 6.0? when i select my form and i double click on 'icon' property, the load icon is displayed, from where should i select an icon, in which forlder, how does it look like? Can i select the icon of 'My Documents' or can select a picture from 'my pictures' folder? When i double on a picture in My pictures folder, nothing happens. Give me an example please.

    Thanks.

    You need an Icon file. Usually ending in .ICO. On my system, when I installed Visual Studio 6, the following folder contains lots of icons you can use:
    \Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\Graphics\Icons

    Also u can use a software to transform any picture to an icon , there is lots of them ..

    If u want to plot it your self, and u have the complete VS 6.0 , you can do that from
    Visual C++ , by choosing new file >>> icon file .

    also there is many sites that offer a good collection of icons if u search over internet you will find lots of them .

    P.s Ron's specified location contains the default icons used by microsoft products like "Open" , "Save" , and so on ; u can use them in your buttons too .
