Anyone has any idea or sample how to create icon using C4D, and how to call it from c++ sdk?
Thanks and regards in advance

I assuming you mean an icon for your plugin?
It's really easy because C4D can use a tif image for an icon
Simply render out a scene with a low resolution at about 32x32 and 24x24, make sure you choose TIFF for the filetype and enable the Alpha Channel option in the render settings.
Your icon will be created and ready for c4d.
You can tell what icon to use in the registerxxxxxxx method for your plugin type.
For a toolplugin it would be
String name = "Plugin Name";
return RegisterToolPlugin(PLUGIN_ID, name, 0, "pluginicon.tif", "Description of plugin", gNew plugin);
Have a look at the sdk examples, almost all the samples have icons

I think I am a bit confused now. What i am trying to do is creating the icon within the C4D toolbar. I have to create one image and put in into the C4D toolbar or creating my own toolbar. Can anyone tell me how to do that?
Thanks and regards
