ImageEn, unit imageenio




procedure SaveToFileICO(const FileName: WideString);


Saves the current image to a file in ICO format. ICO format allows storing multiple images with different resolutions and sizes.

FileName is the file name including extension.
ImageEn creates for you the sub-images to save, you have only to set the Params.ICO_BitCount and Params.ICO_Sizes arrays.
To control each image separately, use the IEWriteICOImages function.

 If an internal save error is encountered Aborting will return true. Saving issues due to insufficient write permissions and disk write failures will raise an exception.
 To abort while saving set Aborting to true

// Save the current image as 'output.ico'. It will contain three images with 64x64 32bit (24bit + alphachannel), 32x32 256 colors and 32x32 16 colors
