I have tried to place an Icon in a Winform header, I have done this before by selecting the graphic - with and .ico extension, as the Icon for a Form.. For some reason it is not displaying for this project...

Any ideas?  Thanks!

Your monitor is set for a colour depth eg. 32 bit - does the icon actually contin a picture at that setting ?

Hi,

The reason your icon is not visible in Window Forms header could be that your Icon(.ico) file is corrupted. Or your program is not able to access resources from Resource as:

this.Icon = ((System.Drawing.Icon)(resources.GetObject("$this.Icon")));

Please check code for setting image as icon or icon as icon.

Regards,
V.S.Saini

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            //1// Set icon from icon file as
            Icon ico = new Icon(@"D:\Zodes\g.ico");
            this.Icon = ico;

            //2// Set image as icon
            Bitmap bmp=new Bitmap(@"D:\Zodes\s.jpg");
            this.Icon = Icon.FromHandle(bmp.GetHicon());

        }

Open in new window

The issue was actually the fact that I was hiding the Windows buttons, i.e. close, max, min.

Once I made them visible, my icon appears.

Thanks all.
