I am currently at tutotial #9, so I am not the asm light. I wish to add an icon on the top left of a window.

I figured that the LoadIcon in the creation of the window is what I need to play with.

I got this from user32.inc :
LoadIcon equ <LoadIconA>
and from the API:
HICON LoadIcon(
HINSTANCE hInstance, // handle of application instance
LPCTSTR lpIconName // icon-name string or icon resource identifier);

MyIcon equ 1 ; Icon IDs
WinMain proc hInst:HINSTANCE,hPrevInst:HINSTANCE,CmdLine:LPSTR,CmdShow:DWORD
invoke LoadIcon,NULL,MyIcon
mov wc.hIcon,eax
mov wc.hIconSm,eax

should do the trick with the inclusion of the icon in the script of MyResource.rc file.

What is the script to include an icon in the resource file?

thank you

for example somthing like this

#define MyIcon 1

MyIcon ICON "install.ico"

invoke LoadIcon, hInstance, 7000 ; 7000 is code in resource file
mov hIcon, eax

mov wc.hIcon, eax
mov wc.hIconSm, eax

AND.. In your "rsrc.rc" file (if you use Hutch's package to generate a new project), other wise anything.rc, simply ADD :

7000 ICON "myIcon.ico"

Remember that the number "7000" in this case should be unique in your program ID's. It can also be a name but i prefer #'s.

Lastly remember to re-build your RSRC.RC file (using the rc.exe) as well as your program. And the file "myIcon.ico" should be in the directory..

Hope This helps.

Thank you NaN

I could make it work without the second line of code:
mov hIcon, eax

Than you

I could make it work without the second line of code:
mov hIcon, eax

Of course, this second line is to store the handle that will identify the icon

Thank you CodeLover I had remove the line because hIcon was not define and I did not know what to do. I figured that I needed to add

hIcon HINSTANCE ? in .data?

I hope I got it right. It works anyway

thanks for coming back
