  • Icon of dialog

    I am trying to change the icon of a dialog in PBForms. When going to the general tab of the properties of the form, I can change the icon.
    Whe I click 'Apply', the icon on the dialog changes. But when I click 'OK' afterwards, the default icon comes back again.

    This behaviour is also true when opening an existing sample (fe CSV File Editor) where I first select the icon and then confirm with 'OK'.

    Probably my mistake as I am new to PB but what am I doing wrong?

    It seems that when I click 'OK' after changing the icon. the change is accepted.
    But when I then go back to the properties of the form and change something else (fe the size), and then click 'Apply' and 'OK' afterwards, the icon disappears again.

    Very strange

      Call me a simpleton, but wouldn't this be an ideal place to utilize "PowerBASIC customer support?"

        Hi Chris,

        That's a known problem with PBForms.
        User to user discussions about the PB/Win (formerly PB/DLL) product line. Discussion topics include PowerBASIC Forms, PowerGEN and PowerTree for Windows.

        ( Work around is to not click 'Apply' ).

        PS. You'll need to use a style that includes %WS_SYSMENU to have the icon displayed on the Titlebar.
