    Also.. you can use a bitmap image list for the images and draw such an image to a new DC/bitmap with numbers and replace it in the imagelist.

    I am not sure but these controls should allow mask stuff.
    Like the shortcut (arrow) symbol for a file.

    So maybe you'll need 32 icons but in an imagelist shown above an ordinary image.

    You can always resort to ownerdraw stuff though.

    If you are supposed to click on these things.... sounds like "the place" for an "owner-drawn" button control......

    (I notice in another thread you are currently all enthused re owner-drawn listbox.... well, here is the GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY to see what you've learned about owner-drawing!!!)

    > 1-32 exact icons whose only difference is the number (menu number in this case

    Um, I think you only need ten (10) icons, "0" thru "9"

    To make a "32" you put a "3" next to a "2"

    But seriously....

    Make your control as a registered window class with a CreateBrush() or CreatePatternBrush() as the WndClassEx.hBrBackGround, then on WM_PAINT select some cool font into the hDC and DrawText() the number in the center!

    OR...

    I can't believe "someone" has not made up a set of "digit" icons/bmps or something you can download for free.

    That is, it doesn't have to BE an icon, it just has to LOOK LIKE an icon!

    BTW, thanks for your starter "Send Email via Outlook via COM" code I found here. It's what I used in a customer application, and will soon be posting a simplified for demo here (showing how to include attachments).

    started a topic Adding text numbers to icons on the fly

    Adding text numbers to icons on the fly

    Is it possible to create a icon in 32x32 or 16x16 and store it in the resource file. Then when it comes time to use it in a treeview for example, is it possible to add a text number and center it in the icon itself.

    Being lazy, I'm trying to avoid creating 1-32 exact icons whose only difference is the number (menu number in this case).
