getting icon form file

Recommended Posts

corgano

What I need to do is, after you select the file, make an icon controll. I need it to be the icon of the selected file, or the program that opens the select file. What is the best way to do this?

GUICreate("123",100,100)
$file = FileOpenDialog("select file","","all files (*.*)")
GUICtrlCreateIcon()

while 1
    sleep(100)
wend

Rough example of one way to do it. :D I seem to remember another way though... :D

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
;Create GUI
GUICreate(" My GUI Icons", 250, 250)

;Get File
$file = FileOpenDialog("", "", "All Files (*.*)")

;Find Ext
$Ext = StringRegExpReplace($file, "^.*\.", ".$1")

;Read the icon place
$iconplace = RegRead("HKCR\" & $Ext, "")

;Test if icon place exists
If $iconplace Then
;Get icon string format is PATH,ORD
    $icon = RegRead("HKCR\" & $iconplace & "\DefaultIcon", "")
Else
;Get icon string format is PATH,ORD
    $icon = RegRead("HKCR\" & $Ext & "\DefaultIcon", "")
EndIf

MsgBox (0, "", $icon)

;Split string
$split = StringSplit($icon, ",")

;Icon path, replace "
$icon_file = StringReplace ($split[1], '"', '')

;If string contains %SYSTEMROOT% Then we must tell AutoIt to handle it.
If StringInStr ($icon_file, "%") Then
;Save the value so we can set it back
    $old_ExpandEnvStrings = Opt ("ExpandEnvStrings", 1)
EndIf

;Icon
$icon_ord = $split[2]

;Set Icon
$icon = GUICtrlCreateIcon($icon_file, 0 - $icon_ord, 20, 20)

;Set it back
Opt ("ExpandEnvStrings", $old_ExpandEnvStrings)

;Show GUI
GUISetState()

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()

    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
WEnd

I also get %1 useing this:

Func _GetIcon($file, $ReturnType = 0)
    $FileType = StringSplit($file, ".")
    $FileType = $FileType[UBound($FileType) - 1]
    $FileParam = RegRead("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\." & $FileType, "")
    $DefaultIcon = RegRead("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\" & $FileParam & "\DefaultIcon", "")
    
    If Not @error Then
        $IconSplit = StringSplit($DefaultIcon, ",")
        ReDim $IconSplit[3]
        $Iconfile = $IconSplit[1]
        $IconID = $IconSplit[2]
    Else
        $Iconfile = @SystemDir & "\shell32.dll"
        $IconID = -219
    EndIf
    
    If $ReturnType = 0 Then
        Return $Iconfile
    Else
        Return $IconID
    EndIf
EndFunc  ;==>_GetIcon

how do i fix this so the returned value can be used with guictrlcreateicon()?

It should be:

$AutoItIconIndex = -($IconID+1)

I haven't examined this script yet, but it works. Take a look at how this script works.

My previous script was from there. try opening exe's or other files (like .RAR archives). I need one that will always work.

WOW. This will work perfectly. All I need now is getting the icon of an exe. Edited by corgano

Thats the odd thing about that script. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't.

Could you take the part out that gets the icon and put it in a standalone example? I couldnt find what part it was. Edited by corgano

Maybe...

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
GUICtrlCreateButton("my picture button", 10, 20, 40, 40, $BS_ICON)
GUICtrlSetImage(-1, @WindowsDir & "\notepad.exe", "", 1)
GUISetState()

While GUIGetMsg() <> -3
WEnd

8)

Found problem. I am useing guictrlcreateicon()

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI"); will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
;$icon = GUICtrlCreateButton("my picture button", 10, 20, 40, 40, $BS_ICON)
$icon = GUICtrlCreateIcon("","", 1, 2)
$file = FileOpenDialog("123",@DesktopDir,"all files(*.*)")
GUICtrlSetImage($icon, $file , "", 1)
GUISetState()

While GUIGetMsg() <> -3
WEnd

Works fine with button, but doesnt work with icon
