I want to use icon files that reside outside of Excel on my Excel toolbars for macro buttons I have created (I don't want to use the customizing function within Excel, but rather, icons that have already been created). In some prior life, I have done this and have some neat-looking icons on the Excel that resides on my desktop. I don't know how I did it, but I know it's doable!
Alternatively, if someone could tell me how to copy over the customized Excel setup, that would work too. I tried copying over my "Book 1" file, but got a message about macro security and digital certificates.
I want to be able to create a custom shape that holds icons. Lets say for simplicity that it is a sqaure. I need the ability to load up to X amount of icons in the square. Lets say I need up to 6 icons. These icons will always be the same. However not all custom shapes will need them. I am assuming that I have to create a custom shape object class. I also want the icons to automatically adjust in size when I change the size of the shape. I am guessing that one way to do this would be to drop a TableLayoutPanel into the shape and then dock it to the shape. Then set the dock property of the icon to the cell that it resides into within the TableLayoutPanel in the shape. The number of rows/columns of the TableLayoutPanel would be predicated on the number of icons needed.
TortoiseSVN and Dropbox both have Windows shell extensions that make file icons within Windows Explorer show a small icon beside the main one, showing the file's status - has it been synced, etc How can I make my application show icons beside files like that using the Windows API? Or is there some file attribute to do that?
Anybody knows how to detect that the user has pressed on the ESC key when in a FileSave or FileOpen Dialog, in VB.Net ?I have added KeyPreview to the form on which the FileDialog rests, but the key press is not seen and the FileDialog returns the file name I had given it as a suggestion to the user upon calling the FileDialog.

This is what I would like to achieve:To create a custom messagebox, with varying number of buttons with custom .Text descriptions, and other features. I intended to have a property array that would be redim-ed and have values (.Text values) set by the calling class:
I came across this great article on creating a custom datagridview column which creates a graph-like effect in the cells of a custom datagridview column:[URL]..Does anyone know how you would edit this to format the number in the cell as a percentage? And does anyone know how you would set this up to take 0 values which do not create any graph effects at all.I have been trying to do this but keep getting errors.
I was trying to block the closing of a custom combo box popup window in my custom DataGrid. The popup window comes by pressing F4 or ALT+DOWN keys in my datagrid which is getting closed if I press the down arrow for the first time, after showing the first value in the combo box as selected. Next time onwards, if I press the F4 key and down arrow, I can move to any item in the popup window and select the item using keyboard and in that case, the popup window is not getting closed till I press the ENTER key or selection using the Mouse. Is there any specific reason for this behaviour or something is missing in my code part? [code]...

I'm using custom serialization and when the xml is generated it's putting the class name as the root element
<MyClassName> <MyIntendedRootNode> <ObjectType>
I'm invoking the serialization by calling xmlserializer.Serialize(writer,Me) so I'm sure that has something to do with it.I've tried putting XMLRoot onto the class, but I think as vb is compiling this partial class with its aspx page, it's either overwriting this property or ignoring it entirely.I'd like to just tell it to either throw away everything it has and use a different root element.
I have a Custom Principal class that Implements System.Security.Principal.IPrincipal and a Custom Identity class that Implements System.Security.Principal.IIdentity. So when a user successfully login to my windows form application, I set My.User.CurrentPrincipal = CustomPrincipal, which worked great until I started adding custom functions to my Principal and Identity classes.

I have a project where i want to add 5 picture boxes and run them .I have tried making a resource folder and putting the icons in there and using like MyImages(0) = My.Resources.FACE03 to retrieve it but i guess i don't have the picture files in the right place and even tried putting icons into the Resourse.resx and won't work. Can anyone tell me or give me a step-by step for this i am using Visual Basic 2005.
I was wondering if ToolStripMenus and ContextMenus support icons? (e.g having an icon next to the text), please tell me that they do because I cant find any property like that and if they don't that's a real shame :)
I have a custom SiteMapProvider (populated from database) and a custom AuthorizeAttribute (validates current users roles + requested page against Role_Page database) for controller classes.I have to implement the function SiteMapProvider.IsAccessibleToUser(context, node). I also have to implement AuthorizeAttribute.AuthorizeCore(context).How are these two functions related? Isn't there some way to 'attribute' the SiteMapProvider?
edit: Might this be a solution (inside AuthorizeCore())? context however is HttpContextBase, and IsAccessibleToUser() only takes HttpContext as parameter.If Not SiteMap.Provider.IsAccessibleToUser(context, SiteMap.CurrentNode) Then
Public Class CustomValidateAuthorization : Inherits AuthorizeAttribute Public Sub New() End Sub
I have created a custom UserControl, with a custom designer, which contains a Panel which is editable. Any controls dropped onto this Panel will go off-form when an Anchor is set. This was already reported here and acknowledged as a bug:[URL].. Are there any known workarounds? Or available hotfixes for this issue?
I already implemented ISupportInitialize in my custom panel class, where i set the docking, which doesn't help. Here's the relevant code:
I have an icon file (32x32) and I added it as application icon in the properties and it is coming fine only if the view is set to "Medium Icons" else it is showing only the default icon. How can I add all sets of icons to an application so that my Icon will be visible in all modes?
Is there a way in VB .Net to add specific icons to a desktop like "Computer", "Network",Recycle bin", and "User" files? I want to be ablse to use it for XP and Vista, but Vista as a main priority. In vista you can Right Click the desktop select "Properties", click "Change Desktop Items" in the left hand corner, and then select the icons you want. I thought that maybe there is a way to do it by calling that, or maybe a way to do it in the registry.
I am trying to add to my application some icons via the code.When i run my executable from debug / release compilation folder it works good.But when I move my executable files to other folders it tells me that it doesn't find the icon files.Any idea how/where I should tell the compiler to add those files to my final executable version ,that they will be visible.[code]

i'm developing an application that extracts all the icons of a .exe file or a .ico file. the ExtractAssociatedIcon in System.Drawing.Icon only do this for the first icon which is 16x16. I would be able to extract the other formats like 64x64 or 128x128. I know that there is a Windows API that may help me, but i don't know how to call its methods or even how to use that.
This may seem like a silly question, but where do you find the icons that you use for your programs? I know there are tons of resources online that can be used but it seems that most are hardly "professional".
I have a problem: I have got an application that is mainly control by a tray icon and I can't show the window unless I click the icon, but the client computer has set the system not to show the icons in the tray area. So can I write a small app to act like a hand-make system tray? That means I have to get all the icons in the tray area and be able to send the mouse events to the icons and let them response to their own program.
