Pixelated Custom CommandBar Buttons


i'm kinda new to solidedge customization, and i'm trying to add custom buttons in the addins tab for solidedge ST4


when i execute loadface to the control, with a 24bit bitmap(tried also 32bit) it comes out really pixelated, as it if was enlarged from a 16x16 bitmap.


i am using VB6 to add the custom buttons



cmdBarButton = CommandBar.Controls.Add()

cmbBarButton.Style = seButtonIconAndCaptionBelow


cmdBarButton.Caption = "Custom"

cmdBarButton.OnAction = "C:\testapp.exe"



Does anyone know if this issue can be solved?

Pixelated Custom CommandBar Buttons

Since you're on ST4, I believe you should be able to load PNG files now. Take a look in the "C:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST4\SDK\Samples\Addins\VC" directory. There are some example PNG files there that they use in the ribbon. I could be wrong though as well. You'll just have to give it a try.
