Icon help

7 posts in this topic

ok... im trying to compile a script using an icon that i made/modified. Im using the Aut2exe converter.

when i try to convert the file it says the icon is in the wrong format. i saved it with .ico and it was a 24-bit bmp

ive tried all i could think of...does autoit require a special format?

all input is appreciated

thnxs,

Polaris :)


PS: this is what part of the alphabet would look like if Q and R were eliminated

A bmp is not an ico, so saving a bitmap as a file with an ico extension will not work. Also, many programs have trouble with icons that are bigger than 64 x 64.


Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

You have to actually convert the bmp to ico format. Renaming a file does not change the file format.

You can convert the format with many image editors or icon editors. You could also use a simple viewer like IrfanView to do it. Personally I use IconWorkshop.
