yes, I know about the associations and of course, I want to
use my own icons for certain filetypes. But consider this
There is one directory and two files displayed in list (one
png and one jpg image). I will define the association for
png filetype. Then it will display my own icon for png file
but hard-wired icon for directory and for jpg file (as it is
unassociated). But I would like to override ALSO these two
icons with my own. In other words, I would like to display
my own fallback icons EVEN for files without associations.
So, here is my question again: How to do it ? Could it be
done with associations ? I don't think so.
I imagine something like this (in FXRuby):
filelist = FXFileList.new(....)
filelist.miniFolderIcon = FXPNGIcon.new(@app,
...and so on
Standard hard-wired icons are nice, but I would like to use
my own, COMPLETELY customized iconset (KDE and GNOME
iconsets are really cool, wouldn't it be nice to use them ?).
