omavideniz,

just use
  Form1.Icon := nil;

or try this:
  var
    ico:TIcon;
  begin
    ico := Form1.Icon;
    ico.Free;
  end;

if none of the above work, and you don't mind
changing the Form's behaviour slightly, then
set Form1.BorderStyle to bsDialog or something

rondi, first ur code will not do any thing
second, don't post ur comment as answer, cuz it's not answer

omavideniz, I tested many ways but no one of them working :(, that works fine with images but not with form icon
so maybe loading another icon will help you

  Form1.Icon.LoadFromFile('c:\icon.ico');

 and you can design an icon to use i instead of delete the form icon, or you can desgin ur titlebar and you can icons and picture as you wish

Best regards
Mohammed

Do you mean you want to get rid of the icon all together?  So there is NO icon?  If so, I think the only way to do this is to set the borderstyle to bsDialog.  You can clear the application icon by doing Application.Icon := nil, but then you still get the old Windows default icon

To assist you in your cleanup, I'm providing the following guidelines:

1.  Stay active in your questions and provide feedback whenever possible. Likewise, when feedback has not been provided by the experts, commenting again makes them receive an email notification, and they may provide you with further information. Experts have no other method of searching for questions in which they have commented, except manually.

2.  Award points by hitting the Accept Comment As Answer button located above and to the left of that expert's comment.

3.  When grading, be sure to read:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/cmtyQuestAnswer.jsp#3
to ensure that you understand the grading system here at EE. If you grade less than an A, you must explain why.

4.  Questions that were not helpful to you should be PAQ'd (stored in the database for their valuable content?even if not valuable to you) or deleted. To PAQ or delete a question, you must first post your intent in that question to make the experts aware. Then, if no experts object after three full days, you can post a zero-point question at community support to request deletion or PAQ. Please include the link(s) to the question(s).
CS:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qList.jsp?ta=commspt
At that point, a moderator can refund your points and PAQ or delete the question for you. The delete button does not work.

5.  If you fail to respond to this cleanup request, I must report you to the Community Support Administrator for further action.

Our intent is to get the questions cleaned up, and not to embarrass or shame anyone. If you have any questions or need further assistance at all, feel free to ask me in this question or post a zero-point question at CS. We are very happy to help you in this task!


thanks!
