   "PublicKeyToken = 12345abc6789de01",  
   TaskType = "PackageMaintenance",  
   TaskContact = "MyTask; company name; any other information",  
   RequiredProductLevel = DTSProductLevel.None  
  public class MyTask : Task  
    // Your code here.

When specified, this property identifies the icons that are shown in the Control Flow Items Toolbox and on the package Control Flow designer surface when the task is added to a package.

The Control Flow Items Toolbox uses the 16x16, 16 colors image type and the data flow designer surface uses the 32x32, 16 colors image type that are the default image types of icons created using Visual Studio .NET.

The format of the string that identifies the icon resource is a dotted notation that consists of the name of the assembly and the name of the icon file, separated by a period (.).

To embed an icon file as a resource in an assembly using Visual Studio .NET, create a new icon, and then set the icon file's Build Action attribute to Embedded Resource in the Visual Studio Properties window.
