Source of word processing type icons for Eclipse platform? [message #448104] Sun, 02 January 2005 06:43 Go to next message

I am looking for a set of icons specific to your standard word
processing functions (bold, underline, etc) that match the L&F style of
the Eclipse platform. The target is an Eclipse plugin, so consistency
with the existing platform icons is preferred.

Does anyone have or know of a source of a suitable collection of icons.

Thanks,
Gerald

To get info about the icons used in Eclipse, post your question to the
following newsgroup:

news://news.eclipse.org/eclipse.platform

Thanks... but I am already cross-posted there with even less success.

Any knowledge of an SWT application with an Eclipse L&F style that might
have these icons?

Try something like:

PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getSharedImages().getImageDescript or(ISharedImages.IMG_TOOL_COPY)

We too were looking for icons like these. We finally bit the bullet--
after some searching, we downloaded the source of eclipse and pulled out
of the icon files. Finding the source wasn't as easy as we expected
(sorry we don't have link readily available here)

If you have a similar experience as ours, you may:

1. Eliminate all image files greater than 1K byte to get rid of the non
icon images.

2. Realize that GIF icon editors are hard to find. We downloaded and
evaluated about 5-10 of them. The one we liked best was IconCoolEditor
which we found at:http://www.webattack.com/Freeware/gmm/fwicontools.shtml.
There are MANY icon editors offered there.

If you are in the same track as us, you'll realize that getting GIF
editing is crucial. IconCoolEditor does this, and even though it's not
free, gets our vote.

I have gone through the Eclipse bundled icons, and while there are a
great number of interesting icons, not the ones that I a looking for.

I have it. But, that just changes my request from pre-made icons to
skills, techniques, and time, the first two of which are still a bit
problematic for me.


Thanks,
Gerald

Veronika,

Appreciate the response very much, but I am not looking for code to load
an icon. Rather, I am looking for the actual gif or png files with the
glyphs for standard word processing type functions. I can find any
number of plain black ones doing a web search. What I am really
interested in finding is WP icons that are reasonably consistent with
the Eclipse L&F.

Thanks,
Gerald
