Changing the Icon of an element in Project Browser
« on: January 18, 2023, 02:31:01 am »
Hello Dear EA Users,

I managed to change the icons of elements in my custom toolboxes, however, I could not find a way to change the icons in project browser. I was sure that the answer is somewhere in this forum, but unfortunately I could not find it. Can you tell me how to do it?

Best,

mr nobody 11

If you set the icon on the stereotype, it will show in both the toolbox as the project browser.

Hi

I agree with Greet, in addition, I suggest to create a MDG technology to customize those icons with a bmp image which modify the sterrotype. Please consult this article and the video below.

Have in mind you can use a bpm file or a png file (I have tested both), and if you need a transparent background don't use the transparency of the png file but the RGB color 192,192,192
