Change app icon on Mac

Hi all,
I have written a couple of Mac apps with Zinc 3, which look like a folder on windows but are executables on os x.
Anyway, it works fine and everything but it's got this icon and I need to change the icon for that app so that people who download it see it with it's own branded icon.
It's ok on windows but in the mac it's got the tools icon.

How do you change icons on mac apps?

Thanks

You should be able to set up the default icon image in Zinc Builder 3.0 when you compile the application - check the documation for specifics

Here is a workshop how to create icons:

Adding a custom icon for your project is in the "Application Settings" Window. After applying theses settings you need to recompile.

Within your code make sure you use the right call (mdm.Menu.Tray.showIcon();) and on the file bases do provide a .ico file for windows and a .icns file for os x with the same name if you are crosscompileing.

Hi all and thanks for the replies.
In Zinc, I have actually changed the application icon and in windows it's actually worked but it hasn't changed the icon for the mac version of the app.

I have already created the .ico file and set it in Zinc but when I save the app the the mac the ico is not showing.
