I've used image files (png, bmp, etc.) in DW by referencing them using bitmap statement

bitmap ( "email_image.png" )

 

Since switching to use the Ribbon Menu control I would like to use the newer icons in my DW's also in some cases.

Example: bitmap ("EmailBig!" or "EmailSmalll!")

But since these are not external image files they are not working the same way

Wondering what you might suggest.

Thanks in advance

Hi Richard,

I just sent you all the icons via email.  And I'd like to also post them here in case others need them.

Best regards, Julie

Zip file only contained 4 icons.  Can I get ALL the Big and Small icons for the full library of icons?

 

Thank you!

Hi Richard, 

I asked our UI designer to create the BMP version of these mentioned RibbonBar icons. Please find them in the attachment. If you need further icons, do not hesitate to email to product@appeon.com.

Best regards, Julie

Have you considered that your premise may not be correct? Maybe the images you're looking for are not icons, but are instead .png, .jpg, .bmp, etc. resources? Perhaps try a Resource Extract utility instead of an Icon Extract utility.

Thanks for your reply Chris.  I used "IconsExtract" app to search my entire c:\*.*   It found close to 14,000 icons like my other two apps did. 

UNFORTUNATELY none were the new icons from PB2019 that contain "Big!" "Small!" with new flat / color design.

Example files wanted that look like the following...

PictureName="OptionsBig!"

PictureName="HelpBig!"

PictureName="AboutBig!"

PictureName="CloseBig!"

Hi Richard;

  FWIW: I normally use the free IconExtract utility to locate various PB icon resources ... for example:

 As you can see from the above, various icons exist in almost each of the PB runtime DLLs. However, IconExtract tracks them all down for any product and then allows you to extract them in various formats as your PB App(s) may require.

HTH

Regards .... Chris

As a last resort, you could always take a screen capture of the images you want to use and save them as bitmaps. [WIN]+[SHIFT]+[S] is your friend.

I'm still coming up empty on finding the new icons.  I looked at several posts, tried different applications to find as well.  IcoFX and Icon Explorer to search multiple folders.  I'm running out of time to find an answer.  

 

I really like the new built in images that Appeon provides, but need as ico file to also include in custom tool that is a DW.  Any more leads you could provide would be much appreciated!

Thanks for your reply Chris.  I was not able to find the new icons.  I used different applications to search.  I did entire c:\program\files (x86)\Appeon\PowerBuilder 19.0 folder.  Do you know specifically which files these images would be contained in?

Hi Richard;

  Even without using the BitMap( ) command, you cannot assign a built-in icon even in the DW Painter in the (for example) "CommandButton" properties "General" tab. It only wants to deal with external images - even in PB 2019 R3 beta.

  Supported internal *enumerated* image declarations / assignments would be a great feature for the DWO IMHO. However, Appeon would need to add this feature support through a enhancement request for a future release.

  In the mean-time, you could use an Icon-X-tract utility. Here is a related discussion thread from 2017 ...
