Is there any way to programmatically set the icon of a Window control? I am trying to set the Icon property of the window to an instance of BitmapImage that I have previously set up from a resource, but it does not work (no icon is shown whatsoever).

Hi Nestor,

 You could refer to the following example: http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#Window/WindowIcon. You could use the same approach to set it in your code.

Thank you for your reply. I had looked at these examples already, and I understand how to set the window icon from a resource at design time. But what I want is to set the window icon after the window pbject has been instantiated (overwriting any other possible icon already in place). Something like this:

var window = new RadWindow();
//Set the window icon 
window.Icon = ??? 
//...now set another different icon 
window.Icon = ???

Hi Nestor,

 What you need to do is to create a new Image object, set its Width and Height and its Source and set the Icon property of the Window to be this Image. For more information about how to create and initialize Image in code-behind you could refer to the following forum thread: http://forums.silverlight.net/forums/p/11780/37722.aspx.
