System Icons?

Is there a way to access icons within Windows XP for use in projects?

There are 10 types of people in this world; those who understand the

There's no place like 127.0.0.1.

Hello TyBreaker,

If you want the Msgbox icons, you can get them with SystemIcons, e.g.
SystemIcons.Error

If you want to use icons from explorer then you would have to load them
from the proper DLL or EXE file.

Best Regards,

OK thanks for that. I'm a bit green around the edges, can you provide a
bit more detail eg sample code that makes use of icons in Explorer or
perhaps a reference site I can read up on it please?

Also, if I did use such icons would they automatically change if I ran
my application under Vista i.e. are the icons embedded in my project or
do they remain references to whatever the particular OS uses?
