Is it possible to change the icon that appears at the top-left corner of the title bar in any Swing window? By default, it is the java logo.

If yes, please let me know how. Thanks!

    In the Netbeans properties window for your form, try iconImage. Otherwise, try:
    Java Code:
    1
    2
          
    Image icon = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getImage([COLOR=#0066ff]"icon.gif"[/COLOR]);
    frame.setIconImage(icon);
