Change Title Bar Icon

Recommended Posts

zone97

Hello, I'm new here and have a few questions. BTW, Excelent program....

I would like to know if there is a way to change the title bar icon? [found the tray icon setting.]

Can you use and icon file for above?

Can "needed" files be compiled into the exe so you end up with only one file?

Thanks.

BTW, I did search and couldnt find these answers... Thanks.

Hi and welcome to the forums!

The function you are looking for is GUISetIcon ( iconfile [, iconID [, winhandle]] ).

Cheers!

Thank you for the information, however here is a snippit of my code...

TraySetIcon("Shell32.dll",-134)
GUISetIcon("Shell32.dll",-134)

The top works, the bottom does not. the taskbar icon and title bar icon stay the same.

And FileInstall for the second question coincidentally.

Thank you for this info as well. I noticed when reading the help on this command, that on exicution it is extracted to a predefined location. Could I assume then that if you want to clean up after yourself you would need to issue some delete commands to remove these files?

It's work for me:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

$GUI = GUICreate("Test Script", 300, 200)

TraySetIcon("Shell32.dll",-134)
GUISetIcon("Shell32.dll", -134)

GUICtrlCreateButton("Button", 20, 40, 60, 20)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $GUI)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

What version of AutoIt you are using? and on what system?

Could I assume then that if you want to clean up after yourself you would need to issue some delete commands to remove these files?

Yes, you need to delete (FileDelete/DirRemove) manualy all FileInstalls to clean after your app is exit.

Simpler way is here - Just place that 1 line at top of your AU3 script:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_icon=your_icon.ico

And compile your script from Scite4AutoIt3 editor (by F7).

You must have file your_icon.ico at script directory at compile time only.

After compilation is this icon inside output EXE and it's used as main icon also for your GUI window without using GUISetIcon.

It's work for me:

I had to change 2 lines and use the code you supplied, those lines were...

$GUI = GUICreate("Test Script", 300, 200)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $GUI)

I was using only

GUICreate("Test Script", 300, 200)
GUISetState()

Like this.

I tried the #AutoIt3Wrapper_icon=template.ico and it didn't seem to cause the compiled application to have the icon i selected... I used a program to extract the icon file, and put it in the same folder as the au3 before compiling. Nothing happened? Thanks.

As I said:

Download and install latest Scite4AutoIt3 editor first. Here is link: http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/downloads.shtml

Then compile your script from Scite4AutoIt3 editor (by F7).
