[Glade-users] Right way to do custom icons?

Use GtkIconFactory / stock property for the said button.

Glade 3.6 with GtkBuilder lets you define the icon factory (and icon
sources) in Glade.

I will release 3.6 on monday (GNOME 2.26 deadline), regardless of the few
annoying bugs I really didnt find time to fix yet.

Right now in my applications I'm just loading my custom pixmaps in and
applying them with:

? ? iconpb = gdk_pixbuf_new_from_file_at_size(iconf, iconsz, iconsz,
? ? if (iconpb == NULL) {
? ? ? ? LOGF(0, "failed to load icon '%s': %s", iconf, gerr->message);
? ? ? ? return;
? ? }
? ? iconw = gtk_image_new_from_pixbuf(iconpb);
? ? g_object_unref(iconpb);
? ? gtk_widget_show(iconw);
? ? gtk_tool_button_set_icon_widget(GTK_TOOL_BUTTON(button), iconw);

Where iconsz is either 16 or 32, hardcoded.

Obviously the problem with this is that I'm not respecting the user's
global preferences for toolbar icon size and label visibility/position.

Does anyone have any links to sample code or tutorials to do this The
Right Way?
