P: n/a

Does anyone have a favorite source for icons that go well with the
various VB controls.

I'm looking for business oriented icons.

If you bought the full version of Visual Studio it comes with a large
collection of icons. It's normally found in the C:\Program Files
\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\VS2005ImageLibrary directory.

Like the other poster suggested, VS2005 comes with an extensive
icon library, though they hide it well.

I would also recommend http://www.iconexperience.com/index.php
Yes, they are pricey, but the quality is consistent and the icons
actually work at 16x16, unlike those of many other packages I have
seen (like the bloatware packages from IconShock, for example).

The problem is usually finding a single collection containing all the
icons needed drawn in a uniform style. Too much stuff out there that
looks very pretty at down to 32x32 or even 24x24 but simply has not
been hand-optimized for 16x16.

Also lots of fun stuff here: http://www.iconbase.com/

You could also hack Office 2003 like everybody else seems to do :)

Does anyone remember the name of the company that created the
Office 2003 icon set? I saw it mentioned somewhere once, but I just
cannot remember where and when.

Hi There,

You can always make your own if you want to too. This is particularly
good for things like your company logo etc...

http://misweb.cbi.msstate.edu/~rpear.../iconedit.html

This software is free and does a very nice job and is simple to use. I
have used it many times for customised icons.

Cheers

IconEdit is so inferior to a product like Axialis IconWorkshop
http://www.axialis.com/iconworkshop/ that even though the
latter will set you back $70 for the full version, this is nothing
when you take into account the time you save using this
product rather than something like IconEdit.

That is, if the original poster values his time and still wants
(abilities permitting) to create his own icons.

I believe a program like Adobe Illustrator is widely used for
creating icons today, with only the tiniest versions of the
results being hand-optimized in a dedicated icon creation
program.
