Fixed defect

Last updated April 3, 2017 by Tekla User Assistance tekla.documentation@trimble.com


You can now provide a default thumbnail image file for applicationpart of Tekla Structures functionality that is developed in order to extend the capability of Tekla Structures but that is not included in the Tekla Structures installation

(*.exe) based items in the Applications & components cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized lists

For example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs.


The thumbnail image name is one of the following where BMP is looked for first:

  • <FileName>_exe.bmp
  • <FileName>_exe.png, for example, Notepad_exe.png

The image file can be located in the same folder where the exe file is located, or in the standard Tekla Structures bitmaps folder.

If no thumbnail image file is found, then the first image resource compiled into the exe file is used, if one exists.
