Im trying to update the icon in the title bar in JavaHelp 2.0
Ive read the System User's Guide, and from what I gather all i need to do is add a presentation tag to my helpset file.

I added the following to my helpset file.  The extra tool bar icons are picked up, however the title bar icon is not.  Any ideas why?

   <presentation default="true">
      <name>main window</name>
      <size width="10" height="10" />
      <location x="1200" y="1200" />
      <title>Help Is Right</title>
      <image>MyLogo</image>
      <toolbar>
       <helpaction>javax.help.BackAction</helpaction>
       <helpaction>javax.help.ForwardAction</helpaction>
       <helpaction>javax.help.SeparatorAction</helpaction>
       <helpaction>javax.help.HomeAction</helpaction>
       <helpaction>javax.help.ReloadAction</helpaction>
       <helpaction>javax.help.SeparatorAction</helpaction>
       <helpaction>javax.help.PrintAction</helpaction>
       <helpaction>javax.help.PrintSetupAction</helpaction>
      </toolbar>
  </presentation>

You'll have to create a map file with the following content:

<map version="2.0">
    ...
    <mapID target="overview" url="TaxCalculator/overview.htm" />
    <mapID target="icon" url="images/icon.gif" />
    <mapID target="glossary_icon" url="images/g.gif" />
    <mapID target="addfav_icon" url="images/addfav_icon.gif" />
    ...
</map>

Create a <maps> section and add the following,
<mapref location="TaxCalculatorMap.jhm" />

You should have the following lines in TaxCalculatorMap.jhm

<map version="2.0">
<mapID target="MyLogo" url="images/icon.gif" />
</map>

Hi there
I had already created a .jhm file, which does include a mapId for my logo

And my .hs file already included a maps section iwth a mapref tag.

Any other ideas why it might not be working?

Hi mayankeagle

Thanks for the links - I had previously read that documentation.
I figured out what was going on though - the icon gif file I was using was just too big.  I decreased the colour depth to reduce the size of the file and it worked fine.

Im not sure what I do with the points for this question now?
