First you need the full SciTE4AutoIt3 package which you download from here. (Jos, another 10% please! :( )

Then you add the following lines at the top of your script before you compile it:


Then when you want to use the icons in the script, you code like this:

TraySetIcon(@ScriptFullPath, -5) ; this will use icon_1
GUICtrlSetImage($h_Button1, @ScriptFullPath, -6) ; this will use icon_2

Why -5 and -6? AutoIt automatically puts its own icons in positions 0 to 4, so your icons are put in positions 5 and 6. Why "minus"? Ask Bill Gates! :)

No, Billi nothing to do with, WinAPI_... functions works as expects. Here is the translation icon indexes for GUICtrl... functions.

If $Index < 0 Then
    $Index = -$Index
    $Index = -$Index - 1
