For item types, part types and issues, Architects typically select icons to be displayed in the swExplorer client so that users can easily distinguish between different types. Architect users can view all icons available for items using the swArchitect client. 

Select any item in the Type structure tree and click on the look-up button for Icon

There are also a couple of methods to retrieve the icons via the API: 

// Get an array of bitmaps containing the standard SystemWeaver icons.

> Returns the SystemWeaver icons as bitmaps.

// Get an array of image sources containing the standard SystemWeaver icons.

> Returns the SystemWeaver icons as image sources.

//In older versions, the methods were SystemWeaverAPI.SWConnection.MetaDataImages and SystemWeaverAPI.SWConnection.MetaDataImageSources respectively.

Known Issue

The SystemWeaver Client API included in our Nuget packages does not currently support retrieving icons. Contact your local SystemWeaver Administrator to obtain the Client API dll or
