    Question Icon in taskbar question.

    I've got a form that I have assigned an icon to, and thats fine.
    When I ALT/TAB thru my open sessions I was expecting to see this icon displayed for my program, but I don't.
    I get the standard white screen with a blue line across the top.
    Am I missing a setting on the form somewhere ?
    I've looked but can't see anything obvious.

    Yes it does. And thats what I presumed it used, which is why I am confused !
    Well ... one of the reasons anyway.

    Re: Icon in taskbar question.

    I DID however create the icon using Icon Maker. It was originally a .jpg file.
    Would this be the issue ?

    Re: Icon in taskbar question.

    Are you running from compiled exe ? The icon will not show in Alt+Tab window in design time.

    Edit: Goto Project>Project1 Properties>Make
    Make sure correct form is selected in the icon combo.

    Re: Icon in taskbar question.

    I converted the picture with 2Icon. Works fine.

    Goto Project>Project1 Properties>Make
    Make sure correct form is selected in the icon combo.

    Edit: Attatchment removed. Use Static's icon. It is better.

    Static ? What is that ? Check the attatchment.
    TheBionicOrange, did you changed the attatchment ?

    Re: Icon in taskbar question.

    ha ha ... sorry been in a meeting so came back to about 10 replies.
    Granted the pic is a bit of a weird one, but the program is "Store Audit", so you try thinking up a relevant picture for a splash screen !
    Thanks all for the help ... now gonna take a look at these icons I've had made for me
