#374 Provide a way to use the icon resource from addIcon()


The UserDialog class has an addIcon() method that allows the programmer to add an icon resource to his dialogs. This method is also used in RcDialogs to add icon resources found in a .rc file (a resource script file.)

The icon resources can be used as the application icon for an ooDialog program. However, there is no way provided for the programmer to get the icon for use in other parts of the program. For instance to use in an ImageList, or as the icon for a static control.

There should be a method provided to create an Image object or objects from the the icon resources.
