How about an Icon similar to 61, but is :
faded out
x'ed out
?'ed

how about one that kind of looks like a Laptop, (irftp.exe)

Although I hate saying no (esp. to Rad) have to say no to these ... going to start getting real tight on icons going forward ... especially ones that are just variations of the same icon ...

However, how about supplemental Kixforms DLL LIBRARY that can contains dozens, maybe even hundreds of icons ?

do you think that the library could contain some addl 'udfs' as well

Like a basic inputbox and some sockets

And don't worry about shooting me down... My wife is feeling that she has a monopoly on that

Ok, make you a deal ... if you can find a proggy to dump them into a DLL, then give me the DLL, I could add a new method to the ImageList object maybe like this:

$ImageList.LoadLibrary("myicons.dll",<size>)

Then one could plug it into a ListView/TreeView like:

$ListView.SmallImageList = $ImageList

k, that's no problem.
the problem is to find me a proggy that will get the images from the web so I don't need to do it manually.

eh?
what do I do with that?
I already have irfanview.

I said, I need to get the files.
I know how to place them in dll as resources and know how to convert them in single click, but I don't have means of getting them in the first place.

GetRight or BlackWidow could do that for ya Lonk Smile

Easiest would be saving the file as HTML locally though, if they're all on one or a few pages.

Edit
I see that they're all available as .zip packages, so it's fairly easy getting them to hd. The link is a bit illogically placed in the upper left of the page

but they are not.
if you look at them, there is multiple places which have imaged-links to the real image-collections which are also presented via links.

Any chance of layering icons? Would be able to superimpose the disabled "X" icon on top of other icons easily that way.

Also, is the Icon.FromString going to get documented? No need for a separate DLL resource with that.

back to the task.
if someone wants me to build a library of images, supply me with them, and I do that.
if the images are not made by you, don't tell me where did you got them either.

Jooel, if you take a stab at building the library, I can implement a new LoadLibrary method into the ImageList, to load the entire library in one shot.
