    Hi All,
    Nice to meet you here.
    I am writing an application around Access and on a Form I need to have a toolstrip icon which is not a standard one.
    Two questions
    1. Where do I find the standard icons that MS uses? To see how the experts do it.
    2. What are the attributes of the icon? Size colour depth etc.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Which version of Access are you using? And what do you mean by "toolstrip"? A toolbar?

    I think I must have been working too hard. I confused toolstrip in Visual Basic forms with toolbar in Access.
    The question still exists is it possible to have a toolbar with a non-standard image.

    For example a button with the image of letters PW which stands for copy the password from this row to the clipboard or a button with the letters UN which stands for copy the username from this row to the clipboard. Another might be the letters URL on a button which means connect to the webpage in this row.

    Thanks for your answer.

    Select Tools | Customize...

    If you want to create your own toolbar:
    Activate the Toolbars tab of the Customize dialog.
    Click New...
    Specify a name and click OK.
    This toolbar will be stored in the currently active database, and will only be available in that database.

    To add buttons to an existing or custom toolbar:
    Activate the Commands tab of the Customize dialog.
    Activate File in the list of Categories on the left hand side.
    Select Custom in the list of Commands on the right hand side.
    Drag this button to a convenient location on a toolbar.
    Right-click the new button and select Default style from the popup menu.
    Right-click it again and select Edit button image from the popup menu.
    This opens a simple image editor.
    You can also create a 16x16 pixel image in your favorite graphics program, copy it to the clipboard and select Paste button image from the button's right-click menu.
    Select Properties from the right-click menu to set other properties, such as the action of the button.
