My Own Icon For My App

Hello to all,

Using Icon Composer I converted a jpg image to an icon. Then, in Xcode, I edited Info.plist and added the icon name correctly into the correct location. This is all correct, because if I goto Project -> Edit Active Target "MyProgram" and then click the Properties button, my icon shows up!

However, when I switch the Build & Run style from "Debug" to "Release", the app that gets created still has the default Apple icon.

Is it in the Info.plist file for the key: <key>CFBundleIconFile</key>?

Ensure that your icon is actually being copied into the Resources otherwise it won't work. There is a "Copy Bundle Resources" build phase under the Target. You need the icon in there.

You may need to do a clean. I think it's under the build menu. This will cause a new application bundle to be created from scratch, which should hopefully include your new icon.
