I want to put an icon on a button. the button was created using visual C++ and was done visually(i didn't right the code to create it i just dragged and dropped it). I used classwizard to attach a variable named m_button_close to it of type CButton. then i went in and manually wrote the following code:

      m_button_close.SetIcon(IDI_DIALOGBAR);

IDI_DIALOGBAR is an icon i added to the project. when i try to compile this progie it gives the following error:

error C2664: 'SetIcon' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'const int' to 'struct HICON__ *'

whats up with that? what am i doing wrong?

This is what you want to do:

m_button_close.SetIcon (AfxGetApp ()->LoadIcon (IDI_DIALOGBAR);

Simply copy that code at the point you want the icon to load, and you are all set.  If you have further questions, please feel free to ask.  Thanks!
