I have created an add-in for VB. When it loads I want a cool icon like most of the other add-ins have in the Add-Ins menu...

So, how do I do it?

Either that doesn't relate, or I am missing the connection. That link seems to be a control that helps me get icons in to menues of my app.

I am trying to get an icon on to the menu of the VB editor in the Add-Ins menu.

Am I missing it?

You have never seen such code to do this? Or you have never seen the icons in the menu?

I have been having trouble finding the code myself. But since every other add in has icon's in the menu it must be posible.

I FOUND IT!


It was so simple I want to smack myself...


In the AddToAddInCommandBar routine (created when you start an AddIn project) you simply add the following code after setting the menu item's caption...


Clipboard.SetData LoadResPicture(1000,0)
cbMenuCommandBar.PasteFace


Of course, LoadResPicture can be any routine that gets your icon image. Note, PASTEFACE only works with bitmaps not ICONs. You need it in the clipboard then you use the PasteFace command to stick it to the menu. Oh so simple!


For a great article that includes the code above see...

It is written for VB5 but works 100% on VB6 too.
