Property Value

true if the form displays an icon in the caption bar; otherwise, false. The default is true.


The ShowIcon property contains a Boolean value that indicates whether the form's Icon is displayed in the caption bar of the form. If the ControlBox property is false, both the icon and control box will be suppressed.

If ShowIcon is false when the primary form is shown, a generic icon will be displayed in the taskbar button for the application.

This property has no effect if FormBorderStyle is set to FixedDialog. In that case, the form does not display an icon.
