    Displaying .ICO images in web browser

    ACS LLC Level 1

      I have a need to display .ICO icon images within the browser. I'm finding that in MSIE they don't always work and in Firefox they display but they are very blurred. I'm wondering if anybody is aware of anything built into CF that might fix this problem? Possibly a flash component?

       

      CF never ceases to amaze me, it always has a tag or component for every issue, but this one might be a problem!

       

      Thanks

          Yeah, since CF is a server technology and "I have a need to display .ICO icon images within the browser." kind of indicates that you are dealing with a client issue.

           

          I am fairly confidant that the <cfimage...> tag is not going to do anything with the .ico format.  At least I have never heard about it doing so.  It is possible that there is java code out there that could do something with the ico format that will make it work better.  If so, it should be pretty easy to inovke the java from within your CFML.

            yeah CFIMAGE would probably not work because that would then stop the rest of the HTML displaying, ummm, unless I put that area in an IFRAME, I would check but I don't think it will work,

             

            there's some conversion issues with ICO due to multiple files, I am wondering if there is a flash component
