How to use custom ico

6 posts in this topic

Hi How do I use customized icon in the following example. I have an icon file call Wexplorer.ico and I believe I just need to replace it with the "^!t". I have the script and icon file in the same folder but the icon does not change. Please help. Thanks

; Create a shortcut on the desktop to explorer.exe and set the hotkey combination Ctrl+Alt+T or in AutoIt ^!t.
FileCreateShortcut(@WindowsDir & "explorer.exe", @DesktopDir & "Shortcut Example.lnk", @WindowsDir, "/e,c:", "Tooltip description of the shortcut.", @SystemDir & "shell32.dll", "^!t", "15", @SW_MINIMIZE)

; Retrieve the details of the shortcut.
Local $aDetails = FileGetShortcut(@DesktopDir & "Shortcut Example.lnk")
If Not @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "FileGetShortcut", "Path: " & $aDetails[0] & @CRLF & _
            "Working directory: " & $aDetails[1] & @CRLF & _
            "Arguments: " & $aDetails[2] & @CRLF & _
            "Description: " & $aDetails[3] & @CRLF & _
            "Icon filename: " & $aDetails[4] & @CRLF & _
            "Icon index: " & $aDetails[5] & @CRLF & _
            "Shortcut state: " & $aDetails[6] & @CRLF)
EndIf

The function is used like this for custom icon:

FileCreateShortcut(@WindowsDir & "\explorer.exe", @DesktopDir & "\Shortcut Example.lnk", @WindowsDir, "/e,c:\", "Tooltip description of the shortcut.", "PATH TO YOUR ICON HERE", "^!t")

I added #AutoIt3Wrapper_Icon=Wexplorer.ico  and also replaced Wexplorer.ico with ^!t. Everything is in the same folder but still not working though. Thanks

Look in the post I made, and copy the line of code. Paste it in your editor. Replace the part that says "PATH TO YOUR ICON HERE" with the full path to your icon. So if your icon is "C:Wexplorer.ico" then it would look like this:

FileCreateShortcut(@WindowsDir & "\explorer.exe", @DesktopDir & "\Shortcut Example.lnk", @WindowsDir, "/e,c:\", "Tooltip description of the shortcut.", "C:\Wexplorer.ico", "^!t")
