developer/2000 search for the icons in the directory specified by registry variable

UI_ICON for form 6i
and
TK23_ICON for form 4.5

so update this variable in registry to "c:orawin95toolsdevdem20binicon"

and then set the icon name of the button like

button name icon name
-----------------------
pb_search rt_quer1

make sure icon file exist in the specified directory

hello
may be i have understood ur problem, if i say yes then
u shoul make ur own icon in any graphic software like that "xara", then convert their extension in "ico" and use it in ur buttons as u want.
u may convert in "ico" with the help of "acd sea" directly, otherwise u may convert it firstly in gif in paint brush then convert it into .ico.

hi Masoom,
you are right i might proceed this way.
if i make an icon for let's say edit,copy,cut, paste what would i write in plsql/editor to execute them like "commit;" for "save"

hello
there is no need to hustle and bustle,just treate as u make iconic button or iconic toolbar, just save ur graphic file and give its right path in file name property. there is no need to write in plsql editor except the commands of save, commit_form etc.
