Re: Setting the window icon (under Win32)

If you set the hIcon of the window class, Windows takes care of
drawing the icon. But if that field is NULL, Windows asks the
application to draw the icon. (If I understand correctly.)

Umm, I think you remember wrong? AFAIK, icons are associated with
window classes, not windows? (But if you use one window class per
(top-level) window, the difference is academic.) I don't think there
is any API to set a window's icon, but please tell me if I am wrong.

Please do, and send in patches...
