Project ICON

Ok, i give up, how do you change the project icon in vb6?
1 Solution
Go into the properties, look for icon, select, then load one from file.
Quite simple.

or set form1.icon = nothing

Well, i already thought of properties->make tab and selecting an icon. however, there are no icons listed! so, now what?

Find one.
Look in the VB's folder. If you installed it, their should be a Graphics folder, that contains over a 1000 icons. Simply open it.

i think we're talking about two different things here. let me clarify. i have an activex project going here and want to change the display icon for the tools bar. sorry, probably should had clarified this to start with.
does your ActiveX project has a form or not? if your project has one, then set the Icon property of the form to what ever icon you want and then go to the Make tab in the Project properties and select the icon.

hope this helps

I think you are creating an ActiveX control, right?
In which case you want the icon for the toolbox, right?
This has to be a 16 x 15 image (bmp will do). A 16 x 16 icon is too big. The image should then be selected into your control properties from the properties window.
Where are the icons in VB5.0?
