    Question Icons for C++Builder3

    How can I create or where do I find Icons (*:ico)to use in the Builder3.

    How can I place a jpg.on a Form?

    Is there a way to convert .bmp to .ico with the Builders imageEditor ?

    How can I create a desctop Icon, to start my .exe?

    Thanks

    You can use Borland ImageEditor to create icons. Also there is a really nice freeware application:

    >How can I place a jpg.on a Form?

    As I recall, you can only do this directly with C++ Builder 5 and later (it includes a TJPEG class). For, C++ Builder 3, you will need to convert your image to a bmp and then paste it on your form.


    >Is there a way to convert .bmp to .ico with the Builders imageEditor ?

    Personally, I load a bitmap into ImageEditor and then copy & paste it into a new icon image of the same size. But the freeware app will also do this for you.


    >How can I create a desctop Icon, to start my .exe?

    Create your icon. You should create several of different sizes, ie. 16x16, 32x32 and for XP 64x64 & 128x128. These can all be embedded in one ico file. Then from Borland C++ Builder, click on Project Options and in the Application page you can set the icon.
