    This class provides the same functionality as the dialog Windows Explorer uses to change the icon for a shortcut. The actual appearance of the dialog is based on the new style for this dialog as used in Internet Explorer 4. The main difference between the standard Windows "Choose Icon" dialog and the new style is that a larger list box is used to display the available icons. When displayed it looks like the image above.

    The source zip file contains the CIconDialog source code and also includes a simple MFC dialog based demonstration application.
