    Default [SOLVED] Icons path

    Hi, im developing a plugin and im using some icons this way:

    private static Image UNITIMG = new Image(null,"C:\\mydir\\myicon.ico");

    Im having trouble because i dont know which path should i use so, when i package my plugin and send it to another computer, the icons will work fine.

    I have an icons folder which i include in my binary build, but i dont know the right path to access this folder. Thanks a lot for your help

    I`ve finally solved it this way:

    Bundle entry = Activator.getDefault().getBundle();
    URL entry1 = entry.getEntry("/icons");

    String pathIcons = FileLocator.toFileURL(entry1).getPath().substring( 1);
