using MessageBox MessageBoxIcon.Exclamation

I have ordered the book .NET Framework Solutions, In Search of the Lost
Win32
API by John Paul Meuller which I think will help answer some of my questions
I have regarding making custom MessageBoxes, but that isn't going to be here
for a few days. So, I thought I would ask you guys how to put one of hte
standard MessageBox icons, such as MessageBoxIcon.Exclamation, into my
custom MessageBox.

Thanks,

Dennis

Hi Dennis,

The MessageBox class that's built into the Framework supports that already.

MessageBox.Show("Hello, World", "My Message Box", MessageBoxButtons.OK,
MessageBoxIcon.Exclamation);

one doesn't. Additional Buttons, for instance.

Hi Dennis,

You can find this icon in the "C:\WINDOWS\system32\user32.dll".
As a small trick, you can view the icon in a dll or exe file through the
"change icon"
window of short cut file.

To get specified icon in a file, using ExtractAssociatedIconEx API.

Sample like this:(I set the form's icon to this icon)
try
{
IntPtr iconindex=(IntPtr)1 ;
IntPtr iconid;
IntPtr icon=ExtractAssociatedIconEx(this.Handle
,@"C:\WINDOWS\system32\user32.dll",ref (IntPtr)iconindex,out
(IntPtr)iconid);
this.Icon=Icon.FromHandle(icon);
}
catch(Exception ex)
{
MessageBox.Show(ex.Message );
}
Because this icon is the second icon in user32.dll, you should set the
index to 1.(start from 0)

Hope this helps you.

Thanks Jeffrey:

That is what I was looking for. I wonder why system sounds and icons weren't
made easier to access from .NET? That's pretty basic stuff for building user
interface stuff, don't you think?

Thanks,

Dennis

Hi Dennis,

I am glad what I provided helps you.
I think the system sound and icons are platform related, so you need use
windows API to retrieve it.
Also, the .net is focus on the web application and it is platform
unrelated, so
.net provided no class for getting these system information.

Hope this helps.

Jeffrey:

Here is a follow-up question for you. I was able to extract the icons from
the dll with one of the many icon editors available out there. Each of the
icon images in this dll has about 9 different formats for different sizes
and colors. If I don't edit the icon and delete all but the image I need,
VS.net will always use the first (?) image type for that icon. In this
instance a 16/16 bit icon. And the properties for that icon in the image
properties pane of VS.net is grayed out so I can't change it. How does
VS.net decide which format of the image it will use and how can I
programmatically change it besides deleting all the formats that I don't
want it to use?

Thanks,

Dennis

Hi Dennis,

You can find this icon in the "C:\WINDOWS\system32\user32.dll".
As a small trick, you can view the icon in a dll or exe file through the
"change icon"
window of short cut file.

To get specified icon in a file, using ExtractAssociatedIconEx API.

Sample like this:(I set the form's icon to this icon)
try
{
IntPtr iconindex=(IntPtr)1 ;
IntPtr iconid;
IntPtr icon=ExtractAssociatedIconEx(this.Handle
,@"C:\WINDOWS\system32\user32.dll",ref (IntPtr)iconindex,out
(IntPtr)iconid);
this.Icon=Icon.FromHandle(icon);
}
catch(Exception ex)
{
MessageBox.Show(ex.Message );
}
Because this icon is the second icon in user32.dll, you should set the
index to 1.(start from 0)

Hope this helps you.

..NET also support Windows Forms applications, which are not web based. I
think .NET supports a number of other platforms besides web applications.

Hi Dennis,

I use VS.net resource editor to open the user32.dll and set the icon's
image type to
48X48 and export it as an .ico file.
But after I import this ico file into button's image property, I found that
the ico was displayed
in 16X16 type and just as you said its properties was black and readonly.
I used ACDSee to open the ico file and found that its still had 9 image
types associated with it.

I do not know how you deleted the other 8 image types.

As a workaround, I found that if you use ExtractAssociatedIconEx to load
the icon and convert it
into Icon class then you can adjust its size as you like.
Sample code like this:

FileStream fs=new FileStream(@"C:\ico101.ico",FileMode.Open );
fs.Position=0;
Icon newicon=new Icon(fs,48,48);
Button1.Image=(Image)newicon.ToBitmap();

I think the reason that at design time the image property only display
16X16 icon is that
the VS.net IDE default use Icon class's default constructor(16X16 size) to
load the icon.

Hope this helps
Best regards,
Jeffrey Tan
