Yes, you can use set_window_property built-in:

SET_WINDOW_PROPERTY(<WINDOW>, ICON_NAME, <icon file name>)

Note that icon file name is just the file name without the path.  Form will find the icon file using the path in UI_ICON  environment variable/registry entry

Thanks for your response.

I was actually talking about forms_mdi_window. Your code doesn't seems to work for that (i even tried by giving the file name with full path but couldn't succeed).

If you want to change FORMS_MDI_WINDOW use the following:

declare

h_mdi pls_integer := to_number(get_window_property(FORMS_MDI_WINDOW, WINDOW_HANDLE));

begin

win_api_session.change_mdi_icon(h_mid, 'C:\test\test.ico', 0);

end;

win_api_session is included in d2kwutil.pll.  Make sure you attach this pll in your fmb.  Also make sure you have d2kwutil.dll installed.

I tried the following (after attaching library you specified) in When-New-Form-Instance trigger:

declare

h_mdi pls_integer := to_number(get_window_property(FORMS_MDI_WINDOW, WINDOW_HANDLE));

begin

win_api_session.change_mdi_icon(h_mdi, 'd:\favicon.ico', 0);

end;


But i am getting the following error when i run my form:

FRM-40734: Inter Error: PL/SQL error Occured

Any Suggestions ???
