Go into the properties, look for icon, select, then load one from file.
Quite simple.

or set form1.icon = nothing

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.

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.
