    Help needed about form icon

    Hello, I've found a good tutorial about creating predefined icons on this page:

    http://www.vb-helper.com/howto_net_systemicons.html

    The code puts visual basic icons on form. I wonder if it's possible for me to use (one of) these icons as icon of my form.

    If you have an icon then you can use it wherever an icon can be used. It's that simple.

    The thing is, that code you linked to does not create predefined icons. It uses system icons by drawing them onto a control surface. If you want to use an icon in a different context then do so. Whether it's a system icon or not is irrelevant. A form has an Icon property to which you can assign an Icon object. Where that Icon object comes from is irrelevant.

    Moderators don't cruise the forums looking for threads where people have requested a deletion. If you want a thread deleted because you don't need an answer then use the Report Post icon at the bottom of your post to send a message directly to the mods.

    We also don't typically delete threads. That link is likely to prove useful to someone so it might as well stay up there. No need to throw good information away.
