How to Mix two Icons ? (how to add an icon to another one ?)

Hi,



How can I "mix" two Icons (or add an Icon to another one.) ?

I would like to make a system like Windows's shortcuts that add a little curved black arrow in a white square to the icons that represent a shortcut on the window desktop.



Thanks for any help !

Look at the Image/Bitmap classes. You should be able to load an icon as an image and perform simple bitmap operations on it.

Ok. I want to settle this once and for all. After looking at the source for various, rather sizeable (but not all were so big) web sites that use icons that show up in the addressbar beside the address itself. Just about all websites that use said icons use one of these two methods (some use both even) to make them appear (in the code of a webpage.) : <LINK REL="icon" HREF="/icon.ico" TYPE="image/ico"> <LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON"...

Hi, I have an MDI application that uses a generic "ShowPage" routine in a module that is called when I want to display a child form.

I'm trying to create a windows explorer like app and the problem I'm having is getting the proper icon for the folders and items. In windows explorer there are many different icons and most seem to be in the shell32.dll. The problem is that there also seems to be custom icons that are installed by applications. For example, "My Music" In My Documents has an icon that is different from the normal folders. I have installed an application...
