Compiled script Icon doesn't display in Explorer window

Hi everyone,

So i have this weird, utterly inconsequential problem but I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix it.

I'm using #pragma compile(Icon, C:\Users\eagosta\Documents\Max_GUI\watchdog.ico) so that my compile script has a nice little icon.

Problem is, while it does work no problem and the icon shows up in the task bar when running the script as well as the top-left corner of the GUI window, it simply just does not want to display in the Windows Explorer window.

I don't really need to fix that problem but figured I'd ask if anyone has seen that before and how to fix it as it is kinda bugging me.

Thanks!

 

In the Explorer:

Yet when I run the script:

This is likely your cache playing up here and should be fixed after reboot or Explorer restart, assuming the file really contains the ico.
This can easily be checked with ResHacker.

Hi @spacebanana,

in case @Jos answer would not lead to the expected behavior, you also could try:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Icon=C:\Users\eagosta\Documents\Max_GUI\watchdog.ico

as an alternative to the "pragma" 😀 . Maybe this helps too.

Well... the directive's name is a sort of give-away: #AutoIt3Wrapper_  Which mean AutoIt3Wrapper.au3 is required to be used as the shell around Run/Compile!
... and Autoit3Wrapper come with the Full SciTE4AutoIt3 installer. That is why this isn;t mentioned in the AutoIt3 helpfile where #Pragma is. ;)

Makes totally sense!
