I use crystal icons and some internal icons via art provider. It is KDEish but I like them anyway :)

Hi, I use icons from and in the standard version. I use the format 'png'. Just in the constructor of the frame to change the handler:
wxImage :: AddHandler (new wxPNGHandler);
// and then the icons (copied to the application directory) loading as follows (example):

wxImage print (wxT ("icons / document-print.png") wxBITMAP_TYPE_PNG);

// Constructor and in the frame of toolbars:
m_auiToolBar1-> AddTool (ID_Print, wxT ("Print"), print, wxT ("Print"));

Enough? :wink:
