Try this :

#include <WinAPI.au3>
#Include <Array.au3> ; Just for _ArrayDisplay()
 
$aIcon = _GetDefaultIcon(".txt")
_ArrayDisplay($aIcon)
 
Func _GetDefaultIcon($sExt)
    Local $aRet[2]
    If NOT StringRegExp($sExt, "^\.") Then $sExt = "." & $sExt
 
    Local $sFileType = RegRead("HKCR\" & $sExt, "")
    If $sFileType = "" Then Return SetError(1, 0, "")
 
    Local $sDefaultIcon = StringReplace ( RegRead("HKCR\" & $sFileType & "\DefaultIcon", ""), '"', '')
    If $sDefaultIcon = "" Then Return SetError(1, 0, "")
 
    If StringRegExp($sDefaultIcon, ",-?\d+$") Then
        $aRet = StringRegExp($sDefaultIcon, "(.*),(-?\d+)$", 3)
    Else
        $aRet[0] = $sDefaultIcon
        $aRet[1] = 0
    EndIf
 
    ; Replaces each environment variable by its expanded value
    $aRet[0] = _WinAPI_ExpandEnvironmentStrings ($aRet[0])
    Return $aRet
EndFunc

This is a totally different solution. A system image list is used to store icons, which are extracted from files/folders with _WinAPI_ShellGetFileInfo. File/folder names are specified by PIDLs. The code contains a version of _WinAPI_ShellGetFileInfo that supports PIDLs. Then the icons are shown in a listview.

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <WinAPICom.au3>
#include <WinAPIShPath.au3>
#include <WinAPIShellEx.au3>

Opt( "MustDeclareVars", 1 )

Example()


Func Example()
  ; Initialize COM
  _WinAPI_CoInitialize()

  ; Create GUI
  Local $hGui = GUICreate( "Drop files or folders (one at a time) on the listview to show icons", 550, 300, 300, 200, -1, BitOR( $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES, $WS_EX_TOPMOST ) )

  ; System image list
  Local $hImlLarge = _WinAPI_ShellGetImageList()

  ; Create ListView
  Local $idListView = GUICtrlCreateListView( "", 0, 0, 550, 300 )
  GUICtrlSetStyle( $idListView, BitOR( $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_LISTVIEW, $LVS_ICON ) )
  GUICtrlSetState( $idListView, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED )
  Local $hListView = GUICtrlGetHandle( $idListView )
  _GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle( $hListView, $LVS_EX_DOUBLEBUFFER )
  _GUICtrlListView_SetImageList( $hListView, $hImlLarge, 0 )

  ; Show GUI
  GUISetState( @SW_SHOW )

  ; Message loop
  While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
      Case $GUI_EVENT_DROPPED
        Local $sFile = @GUI_DragFile
        Local $iImage = GetIconIndex( $sFile )
        Local $sText = StringRight( $sFile, StringLen( $sFile ) - StringInStr( $sFile, "\", 0, -1 ) )
        _GUICtrlListView_AddItem( $hListView, $sText, $iImage )
      Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ExitLoop
    EndSwitch
  WEnd

  ; Cleanup
  _WinAPI_CoUninitialize()
  GUIDelete( $hGui )
  Exit
EndFunc

Func GetIconIndex( $sFileName )
  Local $pPIDL = _WinAPI_ShellILCreateFromPath( $sFileName )
  Local $tSHFILEINFO = DllStructCreate( $tagSHFILEINFO )
  Local $iFlags = BitOr( $SHGFI_PIDL, $SHGFI_SYSICONINDEX )
  _WinAPI_ShellGetFileInfoEx( $pPIDL, $iFlags, 0, $tSHFILEINFO )
  Local $iIcon = DllStructGetData( $tSHFILEINFO, "iIcon" )
  _WinAPI_CoTaskMemFree( $pPIDL )
  Return $iIcon
EndFunc

Func _WinAPI_ShellGetFileInfoEx($pPIDL, $iFlags, $iAttributes, ByRef $tSHFILEINFO)
  Local $aRet = DllCall('shell32.dll', 'dword_ptr', 'SHGetFileInfoW', 'ptr', $pPIDL, 'dword', $iAttributes, 'struct*', $tSHFILEINFO, 'uint', DllStructGetSize($tSHFILEINFO), 'uint', $iFlags)
  If @error Then Return SetError(@error, @extended, 0)
  Return $aRet[0]
EndFunc

Take a look at System Image Lists if you want to show state information (overlay icon (eg. the small link overlay in lower left corner of an icon), ghosted state (used for protected system folders) or compressed state (blue text color if compressed file)).

      Hi, i searched some topics but cannot found a simple way to do that:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 438, 192, 124) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; I tried this but user reported that it work in 2006, not seems work actually $filemenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu ("&File") $fileitem = GUICtrlCreateMenuitem ("Open",$filemenu) GuiCtrlSetImage($fileitem, "shell32.dll", 4) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd Also tried:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 438, 192, 124) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) $filemenu = TrayCreateMenu("&File") $fileitem = TrayCreateItem("Open",$filemenu) ;GuiCtrlSetImage($fileitem, "shell32.dll", 4) ;GuiCtrlSetImage(TrayItemGetHandle($fileitem), "shell32.dll", 4) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd Well.. thanks in advance!
       
      Ok. I found this working example from Yashied. If i cannot find a simple then i will go with it

      Hi All,
      I'm using UseTraySetIcon("shell32.dll", xx) to set my tray icon to a specific icon while running, is there a way I can specify this icon when I compile my script into an exe so my exe icon is the same?
      Thanks!

      Preferably in a separate list within the resourceFor example myIcons

      I have a simple script that switches between IE and Chrome for the default browser, I even made a custom half chrome half ie icon for it. Question is, can I have the script toggle between two icons to signify the last browser it changed to? I would have the active browser's half of the icon in color, and inactive half grey scale. As a workaround, I put link next to it, and refresh the icon cache after it runs.

      Hi all,
      Can the default Koda icon for forms be changed? If so, how?
      Thanks
