Setting Window.Icon to Vista 256x256 PNG icon causes a FileFormatException

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
If I set the Icon property to a Vista icon, I get a FileFormatException stating that the image format is unrecognized. If I try the same thing with an old Windows XP icon (without PNG compressed images) it works correctly. I simply cannot believe that WPF doesn't support Vista icons. Asbjørn

Setting form icon from embedded resource in layout

I have no trouble embedding resources into my project into the resx file and using them for things like ImageLists. For example selecting a background image for a control, I simply click on the [...] button in the properties window for background image and a popup window allows me to select "Project resource file: Resources.resx" and lists the selectable images I've already embedded to choose from.
Yet how come when I select a Form and click [...] to select its icon it forces me to browse on my hard disk for a file instead of linking directly to the already-embedded resource? I don't want to have to keep adding copies of the same icon for every form I want to apply it to. Is there a reason for this or a way around getting this to work properly using the layout manager? I've found some pages that talk about how to code it into the source and force it to work that way but I'd like to know how to do it in the designer.

C# Having trouble setting the form icon!


Hi i ma developing one application in C# for desktop system.

Can't get an Icon to show for Desktop shortcut and Program Menu



I've created a SetupWizard, but can't get it to show the Icon for the shortcut on desktop and program menu. The installation goes fine without any errors, the only problem is the icon.

I've made a shortcut of my exe file in the Application Folder and dragged the shortcut to the Desktop folder, then on the shortcut properties, I assigned it an icon picture located in Application Folder.

Any suggestions will be very much appreciated.


Windows 2000 UI Innovations: Enhance Your User's Experience with New Infotip and Icon Overlay Shell


Windows 2000 includes some helpful new UI features you can customize and implement in your own applications. In this article you'll see how to provide infotips for files, after making the appropriate registry entries. Then create a custom column handler extension, resulting in a new column for the Explorer's Details view. In order to further extend the shell, additional UI goodies will also be examined and implemented including: search handlers, cleanup handlers, folder customizations using property sheet handlers and icon overlays, and context menu shell extensions. All the code samples are rolled up into a handy package which we've named, by tradition, ShellToys.

display an icon in gridview - selectively


I've created an ExpenseReport application which allows users to attach receipts to Expense Report Lineitems. These are contained in a gridview using a template field:

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="File" InsertVisible="False">
                    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink" ImageUrl='<%# Eval("filename", "~/workflow/Images/attachment.jpg") %>'
                runat="server" NavigateUrl='<%# Eval("filename", "http://workflowserver/AtWork/workflow/ExpenseReport/retrieveattachment.aspx?attachment={0}") %>' Text="" />  

The trouble I have is that the 'attachment.jpg' icon shows for every lineitem (even one that does not contain an attachment).

I would like to be able to selectively display this icon or show a different icon if there is NO attachment.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm kind of stuck... ;-)

Thank You.

Where is Format Document icon to add to toolbar in VS2010


For years now, I always added the "Format Document" icon to my HTML Editing toolbar.  It always was difficult to find this in VS2008 and VS2005.  It seem it has been completely eliminated in VS2010.

Does anyone have any idea where is might be in the Customize toolbar myriad of commands?

I realize it is available under the Edit drop down menu as well as keyboard command Ctrl K, Ctrl D.  But is is just so much more helpful to put it on the toolbar.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Set Site Icon in Site Definition

Hi,I am trying to set the default Site Icon in my custom site definition.I have changed the titlegraphic.gif in my master page to a new name but that didn't work.In the site definition I have also set the SiteLogoUrl to an image, but that didn't work either.Some people suggest that you should replace the default titlegraphic.gif file with your own image and give it the same name, but I don't see how this could be any good since an update to the sharepoint installation might just overwrite the image again with the default one.Any help would be appreciated!Thanks

Display image icon in HyperLinkField of Gridview

 Hello everyone! Can someone please tell me how to display an image in a HyperLinkField of a gridview?  Instead of words, I just want to show a simple little icon that can be clicked on and pass a query string to the next page.  The first hyperlink field I have set up works perfectly and passes the querystring to the next page.   The second hyperlinkfield is my attempt at showing the image but it's giving me a squiggly and telling me "the element img cannot be nested within the element hyperlinkfield" I got this technique from this brief article   - I would like to accomplish exactly what it says it is suppose to do. Thanks!   <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="clientID"> <Columns> <asp:BoundField DataField="clientFirstName" HeaderText="First Name" /> <asp:BoundField DataField="clientLastName" HeaderText="Last Name" /> <asp:HyperLinkField HeaderText="More Info" Text="View more info..."

Treeview - how to change node icon depending on node contents

I have a treeview in an MVVM application: <TreeView ItemsSource="{Binding RootNodes}"> <TreeView.ItemContainerStyle> <Style TargetType="{x:Type TreeViewItem}"> <Setter Property="IsExpanded" Value="{Binding IsExpanded, Mode=TwoWay}" /> <Setter Property="IsSelected" Value="{Binding IsSelected, Mode=TwoWay}" /> <Setter Property="FontWeight" Value="Normal" /> <Style.Triggers> <Trigger Property="IsSelected" Value="True"> <Setter Property="FontWeight" Value="Bold" /> </Trigger> </Style.Triggers> </Style> </TreeView.ItemContainerStyle> <TreeView.ItemTemplate> <HierarchicalDataTemplate ItemsSource="{Binding Children}"> <TextBlock Text="{Binding NodeName}" /> </HierarchicalDataTemplate> </TreeView.ItemTemplate> </TreeView> The treeview is bound to an ObservableCollection called RootNodes. Elements in the RootNodes collection expose a member "NodeName" which is the text for the nodes in the treeview at runtime. They also expose a member called "NodeType", effectively an enumeration that indicates what type of icon should be displa

How Do I Not Include: myControl.GetType.GetProperty("Text") When No Property Window Setting?

Hi All, Posted below is code I'm using to generate a list of controls that have either a "Text" or "Caption" property. However, for certain controls in the resulting list, the property setting (Text/Caption) does not appear in the "Property Window" of the IDE when that control is selected. One example of this is the Systems.Windows.Forms.PictureBox control. Is there a way I can determine this and if so - how do I exclude these control(s) from my list?     Private Sub cmdValidateControls_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdValidateControls.Click         txtResults.Clear()         For Each ctrl As Object In Me.Controls             LogControl(ctrl)         Next     End Sub     Private Sub LogControl(ByVal ctrlIn As Object)         If System.Diagnostics.Debugger.IsAttached Then             If (Not ctrlIn.GetType.GetProperty("Text") Is Nothing) Or (Not ctrlIn.GetType.GetProperty("Caption") Is Nothing) Then                 txtRes
