I'm trying to figure out how to change the icon on a form after a button click.

Example: I can change the Form text by using

Form3.Text = ("Form Title Here")

Yeah pretty simple.

But the issue I'm trying to figure out is how to change the forms Icon the same way.

What I have tried:

Form3.Icon = ("iconname.ico")
Obviously isn't the correct way, I have searched but the only thing I can find is changing the icon via Properties. Which isn't what I'm looking for. I'm making this harder than it should be.

how to make button in c++

Icon = new Icon(@"D:\Test Data\MyICon.ico");
The this.Icon will pick up the Form instance from the class in a non-static Form Event handler.

I'll accept this solution because it pointed me in the right direction, just I'm using VB as opposed to C#, But I was just missing the one little piece.

It ended up being
Form3.Icon = New Icon("IconName.ico")
