    Problem solved

    I used the string identifier to load the icon, because in vc there
    was no way I could find a place to set the ID. I presumed that I could
    use the string identifier.
    But after a look in the resource.h file I found the ID of the icon.

    After using this the icon finally showed up.

    Anyway thank you for your tips.

    Not icon_big but small.
    The loadicon call returns 0 so the next line doesn't work at all.

    Probably, you used lower-case letters for HOCKEY in .RC ?

    No completely upper case and I use NT4.


    Do you
    get an application instance handle from GetWindowLong()? Did you
    use RC.EXE to create the RES file and then PBRES.EXE to create the
    PBR file?
    No I used vc to create the res file and after that I used pbres to
    create the pbr file. I do get an instance handle back from the
    getwindowlong call. By the way I borrowed this icon code from your
    poffs program.

    Tried the same code with a 16x16 icon and it worked fine. Do you
    get an application instance handle from GetWindowLong()? Did you
    use RC.EXE to create the RES file and then PBRES.EXE to create the
    PBR file?

    But LoadIconEx might help you out.
    Or search for my post about loading icons. (by Groupindex)
    Adapt it slightly to load small icons.

    Form icon doesn't work

    Maybe something I'm doing wrong, but I can't get an icon attached
    to my form.

    I created my resource file with msvc6. This is the part of my .rc
    file where the icon is named:

    HOCKEY ICON DISCARDABLE "hock.ico"

    I saved it as a res file and converted it to a pbr file.
    In my program I call the icon with :

    hIco = LoadIcon(GetWindowLong(hDlg, %GWL_HINSTANCE), "HOCKEY")
    (hico returns 0 !)
    IF hIco THEN DIALOG SEND hDlg, %WM_SETICON, %ICON_BIG, hIco

    Strange thing is that the compiled file has the icon attached to it.
    The icon is of a 16x16 format.

    What is wrong ?

    (I only see the standard windows icon attached to my form)
