How do I get the icons that have assigned to all the file types
such as .pdf, .doc, .mpg
and assign those to TImage

I am after the small images and big images.

I know how to get the small images for executable.

       TheIcon := FOrm1.GetSmallIconFromFile(Trim(Data^.Type1),0);
        if TheIcon <> nil then
          TImage(((Form1.FindComponent('Edit'+Data^.Meaning2) as TEdit).Parent).Controls[i]).Picture.Assign(TheIcon);      // assign the icon to the TImage that exists on the panel

function TForm1.GetSmallIconFromFile(FName: String; idx: Word): TIcon;
  LargeIcon : Hicon;
  SmallIcon : Hicon;
  Icon : TIcon;
Icon := TIcon.Create();
   ExtractIconEx(PChar(FName), idx, LargeIcon, SmallIcon, 1);
   if SmallIcon <= 1 then
     Icon.Handle := SmallIcon;
     Result := Icon;
   else begin
     Icon.Handle := LargeIcon;
     Result := Icon;

ive tried to pull a image from many of the other file extension other than .exe and i cant rip it out.
