Hello,
Does anybody know how to customize the icon on JFrame?
The default icon is the Java cup on the upper left corner of the
JFrame. I want to change it into my own icon.
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
Cindy

Hi,
Use the setImageIcon(Image img) of java.awt.Frame to set your icon in the titlebar.
Eg:
If u r using a Properties file, u may do something like this
setIconImage(Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().createImage(properties.getProperty("ICON_IMAGEFILE")));

is anyway to accomplish this?

Normally java can only read a .gif or a .jpg image. For some reason, lots of people have been asking about reading .ico files recently, and I finally found a way to read .ico files... Sun has a image I/O library called JIMI ) for managing images.
