Associates a new icon image with the static control.
Handle of the icon to be drawn in the static control.
The icon will be automatically drawn in the static control. By default, it will be drawn in the upper-left corner and the static control will be resized to the size of the icon.
You can use various window and static control styles, including the following:
SS_ICON Use this style always for cursors and icons.
SS_CENTERIMAGE Use to center in the static control. If the image is larger than the static control, it will be clipped. If it is smaller than the static control, the empty space around the image will be filled with the background color of the static control.
