    I was using this program (sorry i cant remember the name...) that made iCal display the correct date instead of July 17. Which worked great, but i bought candybar so i wanted to use different icons all the icons changed with out a problem other than iCal. When i go into my App folder it displays as the icon I changed it to but when its in the dock its showing up as the old icon but with the program still controlling it. I have deleted the app and restarted and everything. I even deleted iCal and then reinstalled it, still no luck.

    Thanks everyone!

    iCal uses two different icons, one for when it's open and one when it's closed. You've changed the one when it's opened (which I believe is all CandyBar does), but not the one when it's opened. To do that, you'll need the icon you want it to use as a .icns file, then right click on iCal.app and choose "Show Package Contents." Navigate to Resources, then find app-empty.icns and back it up somewhere. Copy the new file into that folder, and make sure to name it exactly the same as the app-empty.icns file it's replacing. Then restart iCal and the new icon should be in place.

    I would like to add an additional question to the original one...

    I was able to get the icon replaced just fine, but the date (the month and the day) is still being printed over the image icon I replaced it with. I want to stop the date from being printed over my image icon (don't need it). Can I stop that from showing somehow?!
