I wanted to know how to update the graphic on the indicator or expert advisor properties 'about' tab.

I found this: https://www.mql5.com/en/docs/basis/preprosessor/compilation but how do we include the graphic. Is there a max filesize for the graphic?

Does the graphic have to be ico, or can we use png/gif/bmp?

Mql4 documentation is lacking here. Thanks.

Thanks.
- what is the max size of the ico file (file size)?
- what about the dimensions of the image(s) in the ico file?
- How did you generate the ico format?

The icon retrieves
