Look at CreateIcon and CreateIconIndirect. CreateIconIndirect will be better for what you want to do. Copy the part of the Canvas you want to make into an icon into a TBitmap and use the code below to create the icon.

var
  TheIcon : TIcon;
  IconInfo : TIconInfo;

begin
IconInfo.fIcon := True;
IconInfo.xHotSpot := 0;
IconInfo.yHotSpot := 0;
IconInfo.hbmMask := 0;
IconInfo.hbnColor := TheIconBitmap.Handle;

TheIcon := TIcon.Create;
TheIcon.Handle := CreateIconIndirect(IconInfo);
end;

Cheers,

Raymond.
