NubTruck's approach is correct if you have a Win32API application. I was asking about that because if you were using a different GUI API, the approach would be different.
If you are using the Express Edition of Visual Studio, it is "missing" a resource editor (resources being all the "baggage" your application can carry, icons, bitmaps, etc.). You have to generate your own resource scripts to be fed into the resource compiler that does come with the EE.
Something like http://www.resedit.net/ (not affiliated with this product) gives you back that resource editing. Have a look at that. Regardless, I would take Nubtruck's advice and take a few steps back in that tutorial to see where you first stopped understanding. If you are going to get into this sort of thing, the fundamentals are important.
I got the icon thing to work(it was pretty easy actually, you just have to download icofx and the Resource Editor then load icofx, go to tools, resource editor, click on folder icon, open your .exe file in the Dubug part of your folder, and then click on add an icon and voila, go to the folder that has the icon you want, load it, and save it!).
I made a program and i was just wondering how to change the icon because right now all its showing is the application file icon.
Any help is appreciated.
P.S: I already tried resource hacker, and I probably did something wrong but it didn't work.
OK, so HostGator for some reason no longer allows gcc/g++ access unless you have a Designated Server account, which is a lot of money to spend just to compile my "Hello World" program. Thus I figured I'd compile at home, then upload. Program is your regular old bare-bones Hello World ...
Hi. I have a form with list box : lst_product, datagridview : grd_order and button: btn_addline. lst_product has a list of product ids selected from database (MS Acess 2013) , grd_order is by default empty except for 2 headers and btn_addline adds rows to grd_order.
Hi, as I was told that my code doesn’t scale well at all, I thought perhaps I’d try to get a better understanding of interfaces/abstract classes and classes and the relationship between them.
I don’t want at this stage work on a big separate project as I've already got plenty ...
