Since my last post didn't get an answer, I started a new thread.

Can I call an icon which is in a .res file to for example display the icon on the tray?
Or must I use the fasm icon macros? This resource thing is killing my brain! I thought it would be a simple task to implement a program icon, but I was wrong.

ps.:I'm getting frustrated because I have more questions than answers. I decided to make a new post for every question. I believe there are some newbies like me and they probably has the same questions like me. So the help is very much appreciated!
Thank you!

Yes you can use an icon resource:

Quote:

section '.rsrc' data readable resource from 'my.res'


where my.res have the icon resources with a valid ID.

Then use LoadIcon(hInstance, INT_RESOURCE_ID)

Ok, I'll try that. But which program should I use? I used resedit, but I didn't see any id there and I didn't know how to give an id number to the icons. So how should I make a res file and does it matter what id number I give to them? 401 or 333, does it have a rule?

RightButton on the added icon resource >> Rename >> Ordinal Identifier >> Wirte a Number.

There is no rule for resources, but mostly for your benefit, the name is somehow sequential.

501 icon1
502 icon2
503 icon4

400 dlg1
401 dlg2


Or any other number you like.


I had some problems with programs like ResEdit, ResEd, nx resource editor, etc...

most of the time, I prefer to use them to made a scratch of the resource, than finally edit it manually and compile the resource using RC.EXE (Microsoft resource compiler which comes with masm32 it will requeire windows.h to understand the constants)
