Dear Sir/Madam,

As I have seen VB 6.0 is supporting Icon files, Metafiles and BMP files for using in the PictureBox property of ImageBox, PictureBox, and CommandButton.

I have tried ICON file to use on those Controls, but some ICON files are supported and some are not supported. So, I am confused, because all that files are ICON files.

I want to know, which format of ICON files are supported and which are not supported and how I will identify those ICON files?

Can we use PNG file in VB 6.0 ?

Hi P.manidas,

I use icon created by microangelo icon creator and its Setup File Name is 'mt610-10-1-eval'. You can download this file from internet using Google etc.
VB support 256 Colors with 48X48 or 32x32 or 16x16 dimensions.

Hope this helps
