Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ToolboxBitmapAttribute class to set stop.bmp as the toolbox icon for the StopSignControl. This example assumes the existence of a 16-by-16-pixel bitmap named stop.bmp at c:\.

[ToolboxBitmap("c:\\stop.bmp")]

            "Microsoft Sans Serif", 12.0F,

Remarks

You can apply a ToolboxBitmapAttribute to a control so that containers, such as Microsoft Visual Studio Form Designer, can retrieve an icon that represents the control. The bitmap for the icon can be in a file by itself or embedded in the assembly that contains the control. The size of the bitmap that you embed in the control's assembly (or store in a separate file) should be 16 by 16. The GetImage method of a ToolboxBitmapAttribute object can return the small 16 by 16 image or a large 32 by 32 image that it creates by scaling the small image.

If you want to use different versions of your icons with different versions of your assembly, you do not have to modify the ToolboxBitmapAttribute for each version. Instead, you can declare the assembly with a BitmapSuffixInSameAssemblyAttribute or a BitmapSuffixInSatelliteAssemblyAttribute, and specify a BitmapSuffix configuration value for each assembly version. In this case, a file name indicated by a ToolboxBitmapAttribute is interpreted with the bitmap suffix appended.
