ID:159462   Mar 7 2009, 10:35 pm I'm trying to change the image parameter of a button control at runtime. The method detailed in [link] works for images stored on the hard drive (and loaded into the catche), but I can't get it to work for images generated dynamically. Here's an example of how I generate the icon, and all the ways that this doesn't work: var /icon/dynamic_icon = icon('some_file.dmi', "icon_state", NORTH)winset(src, "control_id", "image=[dynamic_icon]")winset(src, "control_id", "image='[dynamic_icon]'")winset(src, "control_id", "image=\ref[dynamic_icon]")winset(src, "control_id", "image='\ref[dynamic_icon]'")src << browse_rsc(dynamic_icon, "test.png")winset(src, "control_id", "image='test.png'")  None of those file attempts cause errors or any other odd behavior, except that they simply don't work. As it stands, I don't see any way to set a button's image parameter to a dynamically generated image. Anyone else have any ideas?

 <-> Mar 7 2009, 11:00 pm In response to AJX Thanks for the info. Zaltron has informed me that fcopy_rsc() can be used to make this work. var/whatever = fcopy_rsc(icon) winset(client, control_id, "image=\ref[whatever]")
