I am able to add an icon to a CStatic control, but it always either resizes the control and puts it at it's top left corner (using SS_ICON flag) or doesn't show up at all (using SS_CENTERIMAGE flag).  I want to put a small icon in the top left (or right) corner of a CStatic control.  Anybody know how I can do this?  Also, anybody know which create flags I CANNOT use if I want to put an icon in it.  I currently create controls  with the following flags:

WS_VISIBLE | WS_CHILD | SS_LEFT | SS_LEFTNOWORDWRAP | WS_TABSTOP | WS_BORDER

which ones do I have to remove to get the icon to appear?

Thanks.

Hi,
From MSDN:

Icon Styles
Static controls can be used to display icons by using the SS_ICON style. Icon-style static controls are sized to fit the icon when it is displayed; the width and height that the application specifies are ignored. When defining an SS_ICON static control in a resource file, the icon must be defined elsewhere in the resource file, and the icon resource name must be specified as the text for the control. The icon name cannot be a file name. An ICON statement in a resource script file creates this static control:

SampleIcon   ICON  sample.ico
ICON   "SampleIcon", 104, 33, 91, 94, 13

As you see the size of static control is same as Icon,but  I tested the SS_CENTERIMAGE it forces the icon to be displayed in center of static control[you wrote:doesn't show up at all (using SS_CENTERIMAGE flag)].  
SS_LEFT is only for static texts effective.

Good Luck!
