    Default window icon

    Hi everyone, I need to set an image to the window of my application
    I've heard it is this way

    frame.setIconImage(new ImageIcon(imgURL).getImage());

    but not working, I know setIconImage needs an Image as a parameter, but I don't know how to create it because nowhere it asks for the location of my image

    another question:is the window icon (in the upper-left) the same as the task bar icon, or do I have to set two differents sized icons?

    thanks!

    The imgURL parameter is the location of the image. What have you been using instead? Recommended reading: How to Make Frames (Main Windows) (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Using Swing Components)

    the java tutorials website is down
    I changed imgUrl with "/resources/icon.png" but when I run it, it doesnt shows up, thought maybe png format wasnt supported but neither is gif, so I think there is something wrong with the code.
    meanwhile I want to add copy-to-clipboard functionality to a JMenuItem, I tried something with setAction and DefaultEditorKit.copyAction but can't figure it out, any ideas?

    thanks kevin

    ADDED: java tutorials website's up

    how do I put the full path? like "C:\Users\user\Documents\NetBeansProjects\project\ src\resources\img.png" ? I tried creating an Image object and thus, set the image to the frame but didnt work because cant create an Image object.

    Yeah, that looks like a full path.

    Unfortunately, if you want more help, you're going to have to post an SSCCE (which in your case should only be a few lines) so I can see exactly what you're trying to do.
