C# Project of the EG Add-in, How to set the icon

Hello, evetyone!
     I'm new here, and I'm new for EG. Recently, I use the C# to write some EG Add-in Project. I have a little problem. Look the Pic:

The first Add-in is where I download from the sas.support. You see, there is a icon with the Add-in.

The second is that I use the C# write. And I notice the Example: Calculate lag, there is a code which set the icon:

[IconLocation("CalculateLag.function.ico")]

So, I add this code to my project,

[IconLocation("Print.App.ico")]

But my Add-in is still no icon in the EG Add-in Manager. Although this is little problem, but I hope it will be solved.

My Environment:

Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate

Enterprise Guide 4.3

Re: C# Project of the EG Add-in, How to set the icon

Slash,

Two things that you should confirm:

1. Your ICO file is included as part of the Visual Studio project, with a build action of "Embedded Resource"

2. The name you provided is the full namespace-qualified file name.  Your project's default namespace will determine the first qualifier.  According to the name you provided, the default namespace is "Print".  Check in the project settings to make sure that's the case.

You can use a tool like ildasm (part of the .NET framework) to examine your DLL and make sure the icon is embedded with the name you think it should have.  Look in the Manifest, under resources.  See attached image for example.

Chris,

Thankyou vey much! The problem is the icon file's Build Action. I don't know this point.

It's default value is "Content", so that is not working. Now I change it to "Embedded Resource", so the problem has been solved.

And, you let me know the IL DASM tool, this is a useful tool. Thanks again.
