1. One way: change the background color of a JPanel using setBackground(...) and set that JPanel as the contentPane of the JFrame.

ImageIcon imageBack = new ImageIcon(image_goes_here); JLabel background = new JLabel(imageBack); background.setBounds(0, 0, imageBack.getIconWidth(), imageBack.getIconHeight()); getLayeredPane().add(background, new Integer(Integer.MIN_VALUE)); jPanel1.setOpaque(false); setContentPane(jPanel1);

Eranga, I think pranav13 is referring to the title bar icon. The answer to that is at #2, and shouldn't have anything to do with the choice of IDE :)

hey, sry i hv clubbed 2 questions n confused u.
i gt the solution from bruke`s suggestion.
Actually, i was trying to set the icon property of the form in properties window in NetBeans IDE. But it is not setting. Thats why i have written it manually using setIconImage().
Thanks for your suggestions!Thanks and Regards,

Well there is also a property IconImage (and also IconImages) that can be set from the NetBeans property list. But looking at it, it's easier to just write the code yuorself :)
As in the case of many other features of the Visual Editor.
