Loading specific icon index from an icon resource
Posted on 2007-11-29
Currently, I am using LoadImage() to get a handle to an icon that is a resource in my Win32 Application project (using VS2005). Now though, I've added more icons to this icon resource...I now have 3 icons within it, each of 16x16 size, but of different colors (a normal, highlighted and disabled icon).
It looks like LoadImage() is the preferred function to use, but I can't figure out how to extract an icon with a specific index from my icon resource.
Functions like ExtractIcon(), etc. need to be supplied with a path to an .exe, or .ico. I just have it as a resource in my app (ie: IDM_RESET).
Any ideas on the best way to get the icon I want?
