Hi again guys..
I know how to get an icon loaded for a child item of a combobox when using GeDialog:
self.AddComboBox(prof_combo, c4d.BFH_SCALEFIT|c4d.BFV_SCALEFIT, inith=20)
self.AddChild(prof_combo,prof_circle,"Circle&i"+str(c4d.OBJECT_SPLINECIRCLE) + "&")
self.AddChild(prof_combo,prof_square,"Square&i"+str(c4d.OBJECT_SPLINERECTANGLE) + "&")
but I can't figure out how to get the same behavior using a .res dialog file:
ALIGN_TOP; ALIGN_LEFT; SIZE 150, 0;
whats the right way of doing it ?

The declaration of the COMBOBOX seems correct in your .res for the dialog.
Are prof_combo (should be renamed as ID_PROF_COMBO according to CINEMA naming convention), PROF_CIRCLE, PROF_SQUARE etc. (should be renamed to IDS_PROF_CIRCLE, IDS_PROF_SQUARE etc.) declared in c4d_symbols.h?
And do you define the strings identifiers in a .str in strings_xx/dialogs?

yep sorry, I stripped out all the other lines just to focus on the combo. The dialog works good in both cases, I got all the resources from ResEdit, so all the IDS are declared in c4d_symbols.h and strings. I just can't get the same icons in .res based dialog:
The dialogs are for two separate things, I'm not mixing 'em up, just trying to recreate the same(ish) dialog based on .res. Hope this will clear up things a bit better

They should include the icon ID literal value (not the ID name i.e. c4d.OBJECT_SPLINECIRCLE and c4d.OBJECT_SPLINERECTANGLE) :

Ahhh, ok, I see. I have to set the icon ID in the strings, not the dialog.res
That's not exactly obvious (for noobs like me), maybe the SDK should repor it..for GeDialogs.AddChild() too, as icons are not even mentioned
Thanks for your help an time !

Tricks, fwiw, you have a typo in your gui. I know it's not your priority in this post, but I thought I'd just give you a heads up.
