Icons and Cursors (ICO and CUR)

LEADTOOLS reads and writes Windows Icon and Cursor files. LEADTOOLS is not designed as an icon editor, but this file support lets you create a bitmap from an icon or cursor, or create an icon or cursor from a bitmap. The library (DLL) to support these formats is the same as for BMP files.

The file constants associated with these file formats are:

FILE_WIN_ICO 1, 4, 8, 24 BPP 1, 4, 8, 24 BPP [91] Windows Icon.
