Icons for Toolbox Items

Return to Introduction  Previous page  Next page

Assigning an Icon to a Toolbox Item

To assign an icon to a toolbox item, create a new «stereotype» element in the same toolbox profile as the toolbox item. Have the stereotype element extend a «metaclass» element named "ToolboxItemImage". The «stereotype» element must have the same name as the attribute that it is assigning an image to (e.g. "MyTech::MyStereo(UML::Class)" in the diagram below) and must have an attribute named "Icon" with Initial Value set to the full path and file name of the image to be used. The image must be a 16x16 .BMP file.
