    #include <FL/Fl_File_Icon.H>


The Fl_File_Icon class manages icon images that can be used as labels in other widgets and as icons in the FileBrowser widget.



The constructor creates a new Fl_File_Icon with the specified information.


The destructor destroys the icon and frees all memory that has been allocated for it.

Adds a keyword value to the icon array, returning a pointer to it.

Adds a color value to the icon array, returning a pointer to it.

short *add_vertex(int x, int y)
short *add_vertex(float x, float y)

Adds a vertex value to the icon array, returning a pointer to it. The integer version accepts coordinates from 0 to 10000, while the floating point version goes from 0.0 to 1.0. The origin (0.0) is in the lower-lefthand corner of the icon.
