What is an object and how to create icons from objects?

An object is a simple graphical object provided in high resolution. Objects also contain an alpha channel which permits to create interesting effects like semi-transparency, lighning, outer or inner glow, shadows...

An object usually contains one part of the drawing witch cannot be used alone. You need to combine several objects together in order to create the final artwork. This can be done very easily by simple mouse drag & drops in Axialis products.

How to use the icons in your toolbars?

If you want to add icons in application toolbars, we don't recommend to make individual ICO files. It is possible but all the GUI SDK tools use image strips instead. An image strip is a large image containing all the icons placed side-by-side. Accepted file format is BMP (recent SDKs accept PNG also). Here is an example of an image strip used to populate a toolbar:

Once the image strip is programatically loaded in the application GUI, the toolbars and menus are populated with the icons. See below the professional result with RGB/A 32x32 icons in an MFC application with ribbon (Visual C++ 2008 SP1):

If you want to learn more about the ability of IconWorkshop to open and edit image strips for toolbars, we recommend to read these topics:
