Hi,

1. Open the resource editor.
2. From the Insert menu option select Resource.
3. Then select icon, and say OK.
4. U will get icon editor. Give the ID, say ID_MY_ICON and put the image.
5. Save it.

Thats it. Now to aplly that icon to Ur app. do as

HICON hicon = ::LoadIcon(0, MAKEINTRESOURCE(ID_MY_ICON));
AfxGetMainWnd()->SetIcon(hicon);

If U want to change the existing MFC icon,
1. Open the resource editor.
2. select icons->IDR_MAINFRAME and change the image for both 32x32 and 16x16 icons.

Hope this helps.

HICON hicon = ::LoadIcon(0, MAKEINTRESOURCE(ID_MY_ICON));
AfxGetMainWnd()->SetIcon(hicon);


Problem: I am facing a problem in this part of the code:

AfxGetMainWnd()->SetIcon(hicon);

Another things i have placed this coding in the constructer of the CWinApp class. Is it ok.

Hi,

Don't place it in the constructor. But U can place it at the end of the InitInstance(), before returning as

HICON hicon = ::LoadIcon(::AfxGetInstanceHandle(), MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDI_MY_ICON));
AfxGetMainWnd()->SetIcon(hicon, FALSE);

This will solve Ur problem.

Why guys you create new icon for AppWizard generated application

You have IDR_MAINFRAME icon in resources
change the shape of it and all neccessary code to set icon in main window is already written in MFC.
