Application Icon?

Just wondering if there’s some method used to set the platform-specific icons displayed for an app?
ie., in Win32 i want to set the icon displayed when my window is minimized to the taskbar…
should i just use native calls?


You don’t need to make any calls - you set the icon with Visual Studio or XCode’s resources stuff. It gets built into the exe itself.

The embedded resource file can contain a whole host of information, the least of which are icons, you can even have it dynamically connect with different dll’s depending on conditions and such.
