New Pictos Icons

The Pictos icon library has been incorporated into the Ext.NET Triton theme (Issue #1310).

Ext.NET Pictos is a set of 94 high-quality icons and the full list of icons are available for review at this link.

As a feature of only the Triton theme, to use the Pictos icons, please ensure your app Theme is configured to use Triton. Example:

<ext:ResourceManager runat=”server” Theme=”Triton” /> 

A Pictos icon can be configured by setting the GlyphSpec or IconCls properties.

In the case with GlypSpec setting, please configure with a unicode character code and the Pictos font-family separated by the @ symbol. For example, the Pictos Anchor icon has the x0061 code:

<ext:Button 
    runat="server" 
    Text="Pictos Anchor" 
    GlyphSpec="x0061@Pictos" 
    />

As for IconCls setting, you should set pictos pictos-{iconName}:

<ext:Button 
    runat="server" 
    Text="Pictos Anchor" 
    IconCls="pictos pictos-anchor" 
    />
FontAwesome icons have also been included in the Triton theme since Ext.NET 4.0 and can be configured in a similar way as the Pictos icons.
