What makes the icon appear in the toolbox for a new control?

P: n/a

I created a control and added to my toolbox and it worked fine including the controls icon until I decided to merge the
project that contains the control into an existing project. I have included the Toolbox statements in the code, it is an
embedded resource and the bmp location is set right. I have recompiled the control but even though the control appears
in the toolbox the icon stubbornly refuses to appear. I just get the default cog.

Does anyone have any ideas what exactly it is that causes the icon to appear? It is very frustrating.

Thanks, steve
