Let's try this again with IE crashing!!!! 😞
Here's how to add an Icon to the Plugin's menu item:

    
    
      
    Bool PluginStart()  
    {  
     WhateverData* whateverdata = NULL;
    
    
    
    
     // initialize global resource object  
     if (!resource.Init()) return FALSE;
    
    
    
    
     // create new instance of WhateverData class  
     if ((whateverdata = gNew WhateverData) == NULL)  
     {  
      GePrint(GeLoadString(IDS_PLUGIN_NAME) + ": "+GeLoadString(IDS_ERR_CONSTR));  
      return FALSE;  
     }
    
    
    
    
     // register hook, ADD MENU ICON, and return  
     return (RegisterCommandPlugin(PLUGIN_ID,  GeLoadString(IDS_PLUGIN_NAME), 0, "pluginicon.tif", GeLoadString(IDS_PLUGIN_DESCR), whateverdata));  
    }  
    

And here's how to add Icons to your dialogs:

    
    
      
    Bool ErrorDialog::CreateLayout()  
    {  
     BitmapButtonCustomGui* erroricon;
    
    
    
    
     SetTitle(GeLoadString(ERROR_DIALOG_TITLE));  
     GroupBegin(5000, BFH_CENTER, 2, 2, NULL, 0);  
     {  
      // some room for the icon  
      GroupBorderSpace( 8, 8, 8, 8 );  
      {  
       BaseContainer settings;  
       settings.SetBool(BITMAPBUTTON_BUTTON,TRUE);  
       erroricon  = (BitmapButtonCustomGui* )AddCustomGui(4000,CUSTOMGUI_BITMAPBUTTON,String(),BFH_FIT,0,0,settings);  
      }  
      if (erroricon) erroricon->SetImage(GeGetPluginPath() + Filename("res") + Filename("erroricon.tif"));  
     ...  
     GroupEnd();  
    }  
    

HTH,
Robert

The guy needs coffee and not C++ 😉 The bitmapbutton class is not available in COFFEE. pixolinx, check the examples that are available for COFFEE (you can download them here in the plugincafe afaik). U will have to use a UserArea to show an icon or picture in your dialog. Please also try to search the old forum for UserArea help.
