What I want to do is make my level editor able to start up and load a level when you double-click the level file - like you can with word files, bitmaps etc. I also want the level files to be shown with an icon I choose - not the icon the executable has. The latter is partly done through associating a file type, but how can all this be done programmatically? Once I get the editor to start by selecting a level file, what's the way used for it to know what file it should open? Thanks guys.
