Hello to all,
I have several icons defined in resource part of my exe file. When the system paints the icon in the directory folder or elsewhere, it is obviously one of those it has found in the exe's resources.
Now the question.
How the system decides what icon to display, if I have many of them. I think it displays the first one found in the resource section of exe, but I am not sure. If this is true, how can I determine what icon should be the first. I noticed, that Visual C++ resource editor sorts the icon identifiers alphabetically to make the order (it does so for every type of resource). That order is also kept in the exe file, I think, but I have no control over this process. Except perhaps of stupid making identifier names to keep certain order. Could anyone clarify this for me?
