This is probably an easy question to answer but here goes:  how do I change the display size of an icon (or set it) on a CButton?  I have a 16x16 icon that seems to be displayed in 32x32 by default.  Thanks.

For converting from 32X32 to 16X16, load the icon through the resource editor and convert
it from 32X32 to 16X16 by setting the target device to 16X16.

To load the Icon, use LoadIcon member function of CWinApp. This will return a handle to the Icon object (HICON). Use the SetIcon member function of CButton to the Icon, passing it's handle (HICON)

Hope this helps !!!

This icon has only been made as a 16x16 icon.  It has been successfully displayed on the button but appears as a 32x32 icon.

Try this.
hIcon = (HICON)LoadImage(AfxGetResourceHandle(),
MAKEINTRESOURCE( IDI_<MyIcon> ),
IMAGE_ICON,
16,16,
LR_DEFAULTCOLOR);
This forces the use of the 16*16 icon image not the std 32*32 image
