Images in commandbar

Hi,

Do icons in commandbar buttons have to be in a specific format?

The problem is that the area that should be transparent in the icon is blue in the commandbar when the add-in is run. I tried to change the background from transparent to a colour but without result…


Thanks
Lars

Hi Lars.

You can use any images (16x16) for your command bar buttons in ADX.
However you shouldn't set the TransparentColor property of the ImageList component. Just leave it as Transparent by default. If you have already changed this property you are to set it to Transparent and reload all images again.

Then choose an image you like in the Image property of the ADXCommandBarButton component and set the TransparentColor property to the appropriate color.

Strange... I use a png image like this:

User added an image


But the result is still:

Lars,
I noticed that your png image has an empty background color.
You need to fill the background fon with a color and set this color in the ImageTransparentColor property of the ADXCommandBarButton component.
I opened your image in Photoshop and set the background color to
White. Then I set the background color to White in the ADXCommandBarButton component. Now it looks good.
