Default Lesson 1 (Forgot to ask these before)

How do you make icons show up in programs?
So, what's the step? You make a space in the form, somehow pick pictures and play around with it.
When I tried, it kept dong other things.
Thew new icon picture, I can't edit. When I move my mouse around, it keeps on zooming in and out.

I'm not sure what it's doing. The icon editor should let you edit the icons and not just zoom around.

Note that the Express Edition doesn't have the icon editor. If you're using that version, you may want to use a different tool such as Icon Sushi.

Or are you asking how to make the form display the icon?

If you mean how do you make the form display an icon, simply use the Properties window to set the form's Icon property.

If you want to set the application's icon, open the Project menu and select the Properties command. Then set the Icon entry. There should be a button with an ellipsis to let you pick the icon file.

Many applications use the same icon for forms and the program itself.

For some information about giving forms nice icons, see my post Give an application beautiful icons in C#.
