var
 Icon: TIcon;

  Icon := TIcon.Create;
  ImgList.GetIcon(0, Icon);

Thx for the reply and in most cases that would do the trick but in this case it wont and here is why.

I have 2 forms in my program (Main & Sub) and on the Main form I have an ImageList and 2 buttons and what I need to do is when I click on one of the buttons an icon from the ImageList is assigened to the Icon of the Sub form.

Example (pseudo code)

Main Form
------------------
ImageList (with image of happy face and sad face)
2 Buttons

Button1.Click (assign happy face Icon to Sub Form)
SubForm.ShowModal;

Button2.Click (assign sad face Icon to Sub Form)
SubForm.ShowModal

Hope that helps explain things better and thx again for any and all replies.

Well, you never said anything about a second form in your question,

please be specific on exactly what you want when asking questions, so experts do not have to recode.....
