I've created a bevel button (with help from TWM :-)) with a graphic that uses a cicn resource. Initial display in the window works fine. My question is how to change the graphic (i.e. use a different cicn) on the button. Using a shortened version (i.e. appearance button 1,,,,_cIcon2,"xxxxxx") of the appearance button statement with only the parameters I want to change doesn't work(maybe user error here) . I can make it work by doing a button close -1 and rebuilding the button, but this seems like overkill not to mention inelegant. I'm thinking only the SetButtonDatas need to be changed, but I don't know how with this type of button. The following code snippet shows how the button is created. _cIcon1 = 1000 _cIcon2 = 1001 _kControlBevelButtonKindTag = _"bebk" _kThemeRoundedBevelButton = 15 dim as WindowAttributes wa dim as rect r dim as short @ setVal wa = _kWindowCloseBoxAttribute¬ _kWindowCollapseBoxAttribute¬ _kWindowResizableAttribute SetRect(r, 633, 363, 972, 794)// w: 339 h: 431 appearance window -1, "Test", @r, _kDocumentWindowClass, wa def SetWindowBackground(_kThemeActiveDialogBackgroundBrush, _zTrue) SetRect(r, 250, 7, 320, 72) appearance button 1, _activeBtn, 0, _kControlContentCIconRes_kControlBehaviorToggles, _cIcon1,"Hold", @r, _kControlBevelButtonSmallBevelProc setVal = _kControlBevelButtonPlaceBelowGraphic def SetButtonData(1, _kControlEntireControl, _kControlBevelButtonTextPlaceTag, SizeOf(short), setVal) setVal = _kThemeRoundedBevelButton def SetButtonData(1, _kControlEntireControl, _kControlBevelButtonKindTag, SizeOf(Short), setVal) appearance window 1 do handleevents until gFBquit ' end of code I'm also toying with the following which I borrowed from Matt's demo: Appearance Button 1, _ActiveBtn, 0, 0, 0, "",@r,_kControlBevelButtonSmallBevelProc Content.ContentType = _kControlContentCIconHandle Content.CIconHandle = Fn GetCIcon (128) def SetButtonData( 1, _kControlEntireControl, _"cont", sizeof ( Content ), Content ) TIA----Brian S.
