(About the author)
     I needed to convert a bitmap to an icon without having to save it to a file. Just getting a handle to the icon was sufficient, and fncMakeIcon does it. A second function fncConvertIconToPic converts an icon handle to an (almost) picture. I used it to check the good working of fncMakeIcon. And once it is in a picture box it can be easily saved to a file of course. (ZIP 5K). NEW UPLOAD

Nice job. This proves that it works.

Private Sub cmdSave_Click()
SavePicture PictOut.Picture, App.Path & "\test.ico"
Me.Icon = PictOut.Picture
End Sub

Greate, it's what I just look for, it can convert picture to icon without save file or imagelist control, actually, it saves imagelist control, I like it.
