Re: [e4-dev] Variables Icon Paths

The main idea is that this is dynamic! I can remember having read your
article but maybe I missed that your solution is dynamic?

Please note that my proposal does adapt dynamically at runtime so that
e.g. the ToolItem when becoming disabled will get a different image, if
an operation is running the parts gets a different icon, ... .
