Group Icon For Taskbar: Easy Points (I Think)

I set the icon for each of the forms and they display fine (individually) in the TaskBar, but when there are enough forms to cause XP to group them, then a generic application icon gets displayed for the group (that white for with the blue top icon).

Is there a property I can get at to set the icon for the group?

When they display the GROUPED ICON in taskbar, they used to show the first icon which is 16x16 in the collection of icons they have in the resource. So if you want to set that icon for your application, in project right click and go to properties. In that select the application icon. When you browse for an application icon, select a group icon which has an icon 16x16 that you want to display. If you are not sure about this, just select an icon and try and see...

Okay, that seems like it should work, but it's not for some reason.

I took my 16x16 icon, put it in my solution's directory, then set the Application icon accordingly, but it's still referencing the same old app.ico for some reason. Any ideas what could be going wrong?

Can you check your applications' icon using pe explorer? ( http://www.heaventools.com/download/pexsetup.exe ) .What icons your applicaions has?

I just figured the last part out. I needed to have my icon be an embedded resource (right click it in the solution explorer and change the build action).

Thanks again!
