Icons for user-defined toolbar buttons

Post by andrzejm » Fri Dec 14, 2007 9:53 pm

Where is it possible to find specification of correctly defined icon files which can be used in the user-defined toolbar buttons?

In any-size icon file I've tried to use only upper-left corner of it is visible.
The same is for both TextMaker and PlanMaker applications.

Maybe some sample icons are available?

What size (pixel by pixel) does your icons have?
Do you use 16x16, 32x32 or 64x64 icons? As you use small icons the small dimension should be ok,

Tobias,

Thank you very much for your replay.

I've tried both 64x64 and 32x32 sizes with the same unsatisfied result.
And what about color depth and transparency color?

Please try to use the small icons 16x16 px.

Dimension 16-pixel doesn't work too.
In the icons you use must be some special attribute. Have you any sample as a *.ico file?

Use a 32x32 icon, the upper left 18x18 pixel are used.

Thank you, Tobias.

Your last hint was very close to real condition.
I've checked - there are 19(w) x 20(h) pixels visible.

In future we will improve this handling, so you can use the user defined icons easier.
