C# Having trouble setting the form icon!

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

Hi i ma developing one application in C# for desktop system.
here i am applying icon for one form . I have applied it from properties window , but its not showing me the newly selected icon when i run the application for taskbar.

Also, i have tried applying icon from Resources path(Resource.resx) file still its not giving me the result.

This is happening for only one form in my application. Other forms are working perfectly well. These all forms are derived from one base class(Windows form)..
Can u pls suggest some solution for achieving this .?


Thank in advance

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.

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

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 Task Field Values in Custom .aspx Edit Form and accessing through ExtendedProperties


Since we're using WSS 3.0 and not MOSS 2007, we have to create and use ASP forms for any custom Workflow Task Edit pages instead of being able to use InfoPath forms (which would be nice...maybe some day we'll step up to MOSS). The custom Workflow Edit Pages are used for custom Task Content Types that we create so that our Workflow Tasks can have additional fields beyond the standard Workflow Task fields. Once you've collected the values for the Task fields from the user on the ASP Workflow Task Edit form, the typical procedure is to create a hashtable and fill the hashtable with key/value pairs that represent the names of your Task fields and their associated values, as such:

// This function is called when the user clicks the Save/Submit button
// on the Custom Task Edit ASP form
public void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  // Create a hashtable that will be used to update the values of task fields
  Hashtable taskHash = new Hashtable();
  // For each field, create two values in the hashtable. If the field name 
  // matches a field in the Task content type, the field name will not be 
  // searchable as a key within the ExtendedProperties hashtable. So 
  // create a second field that is a duplicate of the first but having a 
  // name that doesn't exactly match an existing field in the Task 
  // content type. That way it will be a searchable ke

http 400 Error when performing item upload after setting custom edit form on content type



What I am trying to do is create custom edit forms for different content types within the same document library.....so basically I have done the following:

  • I have created two site content types and reconfigured my library to use CT's. 
  • I then connected to my site using SPD. 
  • When examining my library I can see that I have the two CT that I added earlier.  I then created a new editform for one the CTs using the top ribbon menu and in the drop down box associated it to the CT.  I did not select this as the default form for the library.
  • I then updated the library CT (not site CT) with the url to form in the editform properties.

When I create a document and edit the properties it works fine - totally as expected.  However when I upload a document the default EditForm for the library is used and I can select the CT to associate the document to.  When I choose the CT with the custom form the new edit form is not found and I get a page not found error - http 400.

The full url for this library is is http://XXXX/functions/ehs/CSI

So the URL I have used is /functions/ehs/CSI/Forms/EditForm2.aspx (EditForm2.aspx) is my form and this is fine.  I have even used CSI/Forms/EditForm2.aspx and this works...  BUT ne

Setting Transparency color of Form disrupts video rendering


I have created irregular shaped media player application. I use WMP ActiveX control to play videos. To make form irregular shaped, I have put a background image on form and have set tranparency color to some color(color of edges of background image).

This works fine in Vista and Win7. But on XP Video screen flickers initially and then there is audio but no video. However if I move my form or minimize it, video screen will appear on monitor at the same location where it should have before moving or minimizing the form. The video appears but not on my form but on whatever was behind of my form.

Also if I disable the hardware acceleration or remove the transparency color change, the video problem will sort but edges of form will no longer be transparent. I understand this has something to do with hardware overlay(VMR7 used by WMP) in XP, but I am not getting whole picture.

Can anyone give some light on this?

Is there any other way to make irregular shaped windows form?

32x32/16x16 Form.Icon = Icon.ExtractAssociatedIcon(Application.ExecutablePath)


I want a template Form which would be using my App icon. The problem is that using Icon.ExtractAssociatedIcon does not work with multiple resolution icons. I did .NET Reflector survey and found, that ExtractAssociatedIcon is using P/Invoke to create Icon through a handle and Form.Icon calls Icon.ctor(Icon,int,int) to get the smaller version, which fails to find 16x16 icon, because the constructor is looking for Icon data stream, does not find it and thus stretches 32x32 to 16x16.

Form.Icon is working fine with embedded resource, because Icon.ctor(Icon,int,int) works fine with this (as Icons from resource carry the data stream).

I'd like to know, how to get Icon with full data stream from my app executable (to make Form.Icon working as I want it to work).

I have a solution, but it's not nice - it is using Reflection:


    private static FieldInfo fiSmallIcon;
    private static FieldInfo FiSmallIcon { get {
      if(fiSmallIcon == null) fiSmallIcon = typeof(Form).GetField("smallIcon"<

JQuery Validate plugin to validate a ASP.NET Form

The first time I used the JQuery Validate plugin, it did not work at all, see JQuery Validate odd behaviour with the ASP.NET Script Manager for reason, but perseverance and stubbornness prevailed and I finally created my first JQuery validated ASP.NET Forms contact form.

How to use getElementById to get the elements in a form

There are many ways of accessing form elements, of which the easiest is by using the cross-browser W3C DOM document.getElementById method. Before we learn more about this method, it would be useful to know something about the Document Object Model (DOM), the concept of HTML nodes or elements, and the concept of containers.

Each time you load an HTML page, the web browser generates an internal representation of the page in the form of an inverted tree structure. Let us look at a simple form. We will use this form later to demonstrate the use of the getElementById method.
