 How to modify default icon for titlebar?
Hi David,

I'm not sure from your question what you are trying to
do.  Do you want to load an icon at runtime so your
application has an icon that you create on the title bar,

If so, I think I can give you a few ideas.

First, in Visual Studio, click on the Resources tab.  
(This assumes you have your project open.)  Right click on
the Icon folder, and select "Insert Icon".  

Visual Studio will give the new icon resource a default
name, like IDI_ICON1.  You can change the name by simply
right clicking the name itself and
selecting "properties".  Change the name as you want -
example:  IDI_MYICON .   Use the tools available and
create your icon image.

Now, let's say you want to load your icon so it replaces
the standard MFC icon that shows up in the title bar of
your application.

In your main application header file (example:  myApp.h),
add a member variable as follows:  HICON myIcon;

Then in your main application implementation file
(example:  myApp.cpp), after this code in the
BOOL myApp::InitInstance() function:

// Dispatch commands specified on the command line
  if (!ProcessShellCommand(cmdInfo))
        return FALSE;

add the following code:

//load custom title icon
myIcon = LoadIcon(IDI_MYICON);
CFrameWnd* pmyFrame = (CMainFrame*)AfxGetApp()->m_pMainWnd;
pmyFrame->SetIcon(myIcon, FALSE);

That's it.  Your application title bars will now use your
own Icon.  You can use similar code to change the icon as
you like in your program.

This is one example involving the title bar icon.  There
are other icons (like the one displayed in the "About"
box) that can be changed as well.
