I have a perhaps silly question but i’m frustrated that i can’t find the answer in any documentation. I would like to add the conceit of a picture/icon to a display dialog. I’m familiar with using “icon note/caution/stop” and would like to put my own symbol in. The documentation i’ve been able to find has said the icon property could also use other graphics, called either by name or ID (number?). I’ve tried calling the path name of the .icns file (after creating one with icnsComposer) but that doesn’t work and i’m guessing that it has something do with my not being able to find any corresponding files such as “stop.icns”, “caution.icns” or “note.icns”. Is there anyway of getting the icon in there without resorting to using Applescript Studio/Project Builder?
Which leads to another question. I can’t seem to figure out how to get a custom graphic to appear in a panel/window built with interface builder. After looking through the documentation on Apple’s Mail Search Tutorial, i don’t feel any closer to understanding. In that tutorial a custom icon is added in an “about” window but that window doesn’t appear to come from a corresponding nib so i can’t tell how the icon switch is made. Should i be doing this particular project in a simple script editor or in applescript studio? I feel like applescript studio/project builder is still fairly opaque to me and would require more time than i can justify to pick up, i won’t be using it much.
Thanks for any help
