Setting app wide icon?

I'd like to use the same icon for my project's EXE file and forms. The
icon may change so I need a way to put the icon file name in a variable
and assign it to the icon propery of all forms. When assigned at
design time, the following code is generated:

this.Icon = ((System.Drawin g.Icon)(resourc es.GetObject("$ this.Icon")));

How can I do this dynamically at run time via a variable.

Thanks,
Brett

Make sure that the icon file always has the same name and that it is located
in the same directory as the program. If you want to replace the icon with
a new one then just copy the new icon to the program directory and make sure
that it has the same name. You will of course have to delete the old icon,
or move it first.

Apologies in advance for the long post - I wanted to be sure I included all the relevant details. The answer is probably very, very simple. I am doing something stupid here, but I don't know what it is. I'm writing an application with a Tkinter GUI (Python 2.4, Tcl/Tk 8.4.) and I want to put a custom icon on the main window. I've followed (so far as I understand it) the recipe in the eff-bot's splendid Introduction to Tkinter - see:...

The following program simply sets the icon of a form called form1. When I get the name of the embedded icon using GetManifestResourceNames(), I store the name in a string variable called s. The value of s is "test2.icon1.ico". This program will compile and run just fine from visual studio .net 2003 using .net 1.1 and also will compile and run just fine using csc form1.cs /resource:icon1.ico. Now, I created a new string called s2 and...

I have a shared project that contains icons and bitmaps that are used throughout my suite of applications. I have to set Form.Icon, PictureBox.Image, etc. using code because the form designer can't see the icons and bitmaps unless they're in the local project. This is only slightly inconvenient compared to the benefits from managing the icons and bitmaps centrally. However, I can't see how to do set the Application Icon using code. It...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
