As I have learned from the documentation and from the forums, only one icon is supported per command. So if I want to display small icons in the menus and use large icons in the toolbars, I need 2 different commands, one for the menu with the small icon and one for the toolbar with the large icon.

However, how does the CExtCustomizeSite handle this? How does it know the ones designed for menus and the ones designed for toolbars? Is it left up to the customer to correctly choose the commands from the lists?

The customize site is also designed for handling one icon per command only. Of course, it’s possible to define two different commands for the same action, but you will see them as different commands in the customize dialog. The customize site is designed to make your application having customizable toolbars and menus similar to those in the latest modern Microsoft’s applications which always use the same images both in toolbars and menus. We could add support for independent icons in toolbars and menus, but this would be inconsistent with well known design of Microsoft applications.

Oh, I have seen the menu icons now in developer studio :-) . So I agree that Prof-UIS behaves like devstudio does. Sorry for that.

But the problem with the checkmarks not breaking through the menuicons still remains.

Kind regards - Peter

Well, MS does not use icons in menus neither, as far as I know. I like the possibility to do this with Prof-UIS, however, since only one icon size is supported, choosing that feature prevents selecting icon sizes larger than 16x16 for toolbars, what would be appropriate nowadays. Also, if I have a command with a check mark in the menu - and highlighted in the toolbar - I really NEED 2 commands up to now, because the icon takes precedence over the checkmark in the menu, and they DO both show up in the customize site. So if you like, please accept these thoughts as feature requests...

Kind regards - Peter
