Hello Beatrice,

Hope you are doing great!

To create an icon you will need a program called Imagedit, which you can find it on VB CD (in the folder commontoolsvbimagedit).

Please note that this program comes with very limited features.

There are programs which are available on the web for free like IcoFX.

Hi Beatricegvavra,


I will be able to help you with that. You can simply follow these steps and you're done. You will be able to personalize it as well the one that looks like a toolbar in Microsoft Word.
First, make sure you have the right image uploaded to your computer.
Now, you need to open the Visual Basic form. You need to know where you want the image to show up on the form (controls like buttons or text boxes).
Choose the picture box control from the toolbox. The picture box is usually a small rectangle with a shape inside located on the right hand part.
Make a picture box on the form whatever size you prefer. Then, using the properties set, add a picture to the box. You can select values or just use default and you're done!
 The best way to control the picture box so it can present different pictures is with a command button. Make sure your picture box is named correctly to avoid any confusion, and make sure to have the right file name, or else the function of the object is not going to work.
Good luck!
