HOW TO USE Windows XP 32bit icons (with Alpha channel)
This project shown the solution for two problems (where the first one is insurmountable without API functions!).
1) We know that Visual Basic allow not to load 32bit icons with Alpha channel (aka Windows XP icons). If you try to does it, will return a "Invalid image." error message.
This project, with a intensive use of API functions, show how to load
this icons. Moreover you can decide which image type and size to load.
2) Another problem come from the VB Resource Editor: if you try to add 32bit icons (to create a RES file in your project) VB return the same error message: "Invalid image."
Oh yes, sometimes you have loaded with success a multi-format icons (containing
32bit icons, also). But VB don't load the 'best' format and don't show
'never' a 32bit image!
