Typhoon, define a static control and use the following function to fill it.
invoke SendDlgItemMessage, hDlgWin, IDS_STATIC,\

What i actually mean is, in the resource file you have the line that looks like that: ICON "warning",-1,10,20,0,0,"warning.ico" but it doesn't work that way i just wanna know how i get the icon in my dialog via that icon control if my icon is a single file

I got it figured out vesa, so i did following in my resource file: #define ICON_WARNING 3004 ICON_WARNING ICON "mainicon.ico" to show it: CONTROL ICON_WARNING, -1, "static", SS_ICON | WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, 4, 4, 0, 0 am i right or is there a better way ? thanks anyways Regards Typhoon

Typhoon, I meant you have in your resource file the following
#define	IDI_ICON 	    1
#define SS_ICON 	    3

IDI_ICON ICON "nn.ico"

CONTROL	    "", 110, "static", SS_ICON, 22, 140, 32, 32
In your code you can fill the slot with your icon using the function SendDlgItemMessage. hth vesa
