An .ico file is a different image format to .bmp. TImage and descendants
work with .bmp format. I don't know of a data-aware control that can
either represent or convert an .ico file. (Means nothing - I just don't
know!) Thomas Steinmaurer has a TIB_JPegImage...but Jpeg doesn't help you
with .ico either.
