ALT + TAB Application Icon is not shown RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a form with Icon loaded at runtime. I made that form as ShowInTaskBar = false;

    If I want to navigate, I should go by ALT + TAB only, if I give ALT + TAB, default VS icon is shown. How to resolve this.?

  • Tried it. It also works if you change it after the form is shown.

  • you need to assign the icon(.ico) image in the icon property of the form. Go to the Form property(F4), then set Icon there.

  • If I do it by runtime like, Form1.icon = icon; It'll not come?

  • hi,

    You should use the below code for loading the icon in the form. Also you should copy the icon file to application exe location (Debug/Release). Otherwise add the file to project and mark the property as Copy always.

    this.Icon = new Icon("MSN.ICO");

  • it will work, but make sure that you do not make a new object of the form and assign ICON to that. it will go on infinite loop of you make a new object at start of the form.
