#1752 closed Bug (Wont Fix)

GUICtrlCreateIcon doesn't work with higher index than 0 in WinXP x64 / Win 2003

Reported by: JFX Owned by: Jon
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


None of the Icons create with GUICtrlCreateIcon will be display under XP x64 (compiled as x86 or x64)

Seems to work fine with XP x86 / Win7 x64

GUICreate("", 600, 250)
For $Y = 1 To 4
    For $X = 1 To 4
        GUICtrlCreateIcon('shell32.dll',$x + $y * 4 -4, 5+$X*74-64, 5+$Y*64-64, 32, 32)
        GUICtrlSetImage(-1, 'shell32.dll',$x + $y * 4 -4)


While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        If $msg = -3 Then ExitLoop

Same problem seems to be with Win 2003. Maybe also similar issue with

I cannot repro your problem as I don't have access to WinXP/64 or Win2003.

For the .icl I don't know what have change but it is true it is not working anymore since a lot of AutoIt releases. Certainly the support of ordinal numbering have change the behavior.

In fact I retest the related topic and found that .icl is working under Win7

I get access to a WinXP64 and I can confirm that The Windows API used for GUICtrlCreateIcon has been fixed by Microsoft (LoadImage)
The difference with Button CtrlSetImage is the fact an extractIcon is used which allow to have the right centering in a button but using 16x16 or 32x32 icon.
As Win7 and Vista as been Fixed by Microsoft, I will not do any change to AutoIt code
Sorry for this non fixing
Perhaps a global reengineering of GUI see #376 will change this behavior for this old Windows X64 release
