This syntax works everyone, I discovered by trial and error.

But the file I used for this example is a dot ico (.ico) file.  

I had hoped a dot bmp (.bmp) file could be used, but it can’t.

Does anyone know how to generate a dot ico (.ico)

From a dot bmp (.bmp)?

 

$Icon = new Win32::GUI::Bitmap("C:\\Bibles\\icon.ico",1);            #    1 specifies icon type

$W->SetIcon($Icon,0);              #  0 = small icon, 1 = big icon

$W->Show();

$W->BringWindowToTop();

 

            Thanks,

            Eric

Peter, thanks, but what I am really needing is an icon for a Window or DialogBox.

Not needing an icon for the system tray.  I was hoping to be able to use a small bitmap file

For the icon since I do not have an icon generator.

 

$Icon = new Win32::GUI::Bitmap("C:\\Bibles\\bible.bmp",1);     #    1 specifies icon type

$W->Show();

$W->BringWindowToTop();

$W->SetIcon($Icon,0);              #  0 = small icon, 1 = big icon

$W->ChangeSmallIcon($Icon);

 

Does not do the trick.

my $icon = new Win32::GUI::Icon("Icon.ico");

 

my $ni = $Window->AddNotifyIcon(
 -icon => $icon,
 -id => 1,
 -name => ni,
 -tip => "Mouseover shows this",
);

Can someone show me an example how to

Change the camel (perl) icon to a user-defined icon?

In both Windows and DialogBoxes?

 

I tried using Windows/DialogBox option       –icon  =>  $myicon,

 

Where $myicon is either defined as…

 

$Icon = new Win32::GUI::Icon("C:\\Bibles\\bible.bmp");

     (or)

$Icon = new Win32::GUI::Bitmap("C:\\Bibles\\bible.bmp",1);

 

But neither work. 

 

Thanks,

Eric
