I used the png to generate the string. Works as a charm.
You also should write an extra line at the end of your function
$String_FormIcon = $System.Bitmap.FromBase64String($String_FormIcon)

Nay,

neither this nor the other shows other than the default form icon.
Please don't tell me that this is due to coding on a W2K Prof. box

Why should I do this ? It makes no sense !

Why you should do that. Well, If I don't, I do not get an icon.
I don't know how far I can go posting script, because Benny said

I cannot believe that W2K is an issue.
Also use the PNG to create the string, not your converted bmp.

I to had that issue until I read more on the Form.Icon. It was a bit frustrating to say the least.

The thing that really annoys me is that the code is exactly the same as in Shawns functioning post here. The only difference is the base64 string

edit: btw, I never used any form designer of any kind, and I won't start now \:\)

If you would use the KFD and add an icon to a form, you would get an example script that you can use...
Anyway, that is how I did it.

lol.
You don't get it, eh?
I have a sample script that works! Just follow the link I posted above and run Shawns sample ... See? it works! Now compare Shawns script to the one I posted... any difference? I'd say the only difference is the base64 string itself.

So it must have something to do either with the size (aspect ratio) of the input bitmap or with something else I am doomed to overlook atm

I am just the type of guy who likes to understand things rather than to accept silver platter solutions from forms designers and stuff ... more fun, you know

maybe Shawns sample strings are converted (real) *.ico files ???

Jochen,
Shawn's example does work fine, the problem you are having is that the Base64 string is created from a .ico file.

Shawn's example with the correct Base64 string:
Code:
Break On 

$System = CreateObject("Kixforms.System") 

$Form = $System.Form() 
$Form.Text = "Demo" 
$Form.Icon = $System.Icon.FromBase64String(UserIconString()) 

$Form.Center 
$Form.Show 
While $Form.Visible 
 $= Execute($System.Application.DoEvents) 
Loop 

Exit 0 

Function UserIconString() 
$UserIconString = " 
AAABAAEAEBAQAAAAAAAoAQAAFgAAACgAAAAQAAAAIAAAAAEABAAAAAAAwAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACAAACAAAAAgIAAgAAAAIAAgACAgAAAgICAAMDAwAAAAP8AAP8AAAD/
/wD/AAAA/wD/AP//AAD///8AAAAAAAAAAAAP/////4iP8A////iAAI/wD///AACQj/AP//8I
8AD/8A///wj/iI/wD///CIAAj/AP//8AAKCP8A///wiAAP/w+IiAAI////DwAACwj///8PCP
8AD////w8I////////AACJmZmZmZkA4ImZmZmZmQAAgAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA" 
EndFunction

Yap, that was the conclusion that I came up with in the mean time ...



Will have to experiment with .Ico format this evening when I get to my home boxes which have a bit more than mspaint on it or digging another way around it ... there are other methods than FromBase64String that I have not tried yet.

When did you say the deadline was ?

Is it allowed to add a function to hinder the possibility of setting the splitter to high or to low?
