Topic: Re: define the buttonicon from VB?

Acrobat needs a PDF file or a PDF Stream for the icon. You would have
to convert your JPEGs to PDF, and make them into a Template. For more
about that, see the Portable Document Format Specification,
downloadable from the developer section of the Adobe website

Hope, this can help.
