  • If your toolwindow is implemented using the managed package framework classes (MPF), you should have a class derived from ToolWindowPane. That ToolWindowPane derived class has a constructor that typically sets the ToolWindowPane.BitmapResourceID and ToolWindowPane.BitmapIndex properties. These are the properties that correlate to that particular icon image.
