Setup And Deployment - Choice Of Icons For Desktop?

Jun 24, 2010

Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:""; margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:Arial; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} p {mso-margin-top-alt:auto; margin-right:0in; mso-margin-bottom-alt:auto; margin-left:0in; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} @page Section1 {size:8.5in


I'm practicing using the setup and deployment project. I can add a shortcut to the desktop and give it an icon to display without problem. Many applications have a choice of icons to display for the desktop icon; when we right-click on the icon and choose "change icon" there is a box that appears giving the user a choice of different styles of icons to use for the programme. My question is: how can I give the user a choice of icons to be able to select which one to display? Do I have to make a dll file or is it another method?

Use WSH To Create A Shortcut To A Folder In My Quick Launch Toolbar?

Jan 14, 2008

I have a Quick Launch Toolbar linked to a folder of shortcuts.In this folder I link other folders and applications that I use commonly.I'm trying to use WSH to create a shortcut to a folder in my Quick Launch toolbar, but the shortcut isn't being created correctly.I suspect my problem is that, evidently, Windows has two kinds of shortcuts to folders.Using Explorer,I navigate to my Quick Launch folder, and choose the File | New | Shortcut, supplying the name of another folder as a target, it creates the shortcut.Using Explorer, looking at the shortcut in the details panel, Win says the shortcut is of type "Shortcut". Looking at its properties, the type is also Shortcut, and looking at the Shortcut tab, the Target Type is "Folder" and the Target location is the path I supplied. Now create the shortcut another way.Locate the folder in Explorer, and right-click-drag it to the same Quick Launch folder, choosing to Create a Shortcut.Now, Explorer thinks the shortcut is of type "Folder" and looking at it's properties, the Type is Folder (Target Type isn't shown) and the Target does point to the real location.There isn't a Shortcut tab now either.Both are definitely shortcuts to the same folder (I've double-checked), but they work differently in Quick Launch.If you pull up the Quick Launch toolbar and hover over the second shorcut, Windows pops out a sub-menu that contains the folder's contents. However, there is no such functionality using the first shortcut, you would have to choose Explore from the right-click menu to view it's contents.

(Below, the "Work" dir is my Quick Launch toolbar's folder)Using WSH, I can create a shortcut that doesn't autoexpand as follows:        Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")[code].....

Difference Bwtween Vb2005 And Vb2008 - Use Advanced Installer To Build A Setup File For Application?

Aug 30, 2010

I was studying visual basic 2008 and had reached almost 60% of it when I was told that my course curriculum included visual basic 2005. I will now have to reinstall visual basic 2005(.net framework 2) instead of visual basic 2008(3.5 .net framework). I was wondering- will it be completely different vb2005 and vb2008? I really wanted to stick to vb2008, I was getting the hang of it. Also, I was wondering, can I run my application vb2008 in .net framework? Is there any way around? Also, I used advanced installer to build a setup file for my application? Now the question is will the other computer(the one which will install from the set up) need .net framework of 3.5(since I built apps in vb2008)?

Adding Icons To A Desktop?

Feb 6, 2009

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.

Listview Not Showing Icons When Launched From Desktop Icon

Oct 10, 2009

I have created a project that uses a listview associated to an imagelist (LargeImagelist, I have set the size as 100 x 75 and 32 bit depth), that displays information from a database along with an image from the image list. My listview is set to tilemode so that I can control the size of the tiles to get two columns of six. The image list is populated when the form is loaded from all the images in a specific folder, this part is working appropriately as I can get a picturebox working consistently that references an image from the imagelist.
