  • Ressources with more than 1 Icon

    Just added to a program 3 icons and 4 bitmaps. 1 bitmap was added by PBForms. Now I am a little confused: At first, everything was allright, my program-icon on the desktop was the first I compiled into the script.

    After adding the other ones, the desktop icon changed into another. So I thought, "Ok, the last or the first one you tell the script to compile, is the program-icon!" After a few trys I realized, that I was wrong
    So I added numbers in the constantnames- maybe the first or the last one in the alphabetical order of the names have something to do with it.

    But the strange thing is, the icon with the constant name in the middle is shown to me. Sometimes, he shows the right one, and everytime I change my folder view, the icon is changing, too. Maybe it has something to do with the resolution of the icons?

    How can I tell the compiler, to take exactly this or that icon for my exe?

    Windows chooses which icon it uses to display in Windows Explorer and elsewhere, not the compiler.
    The icon with the lowest numeric ID is used. If the icons use string identifiers, then it uses the lowest alphabetical icon.
