iconic=1 is what you get when you check the option "Run minimized" in the "Change button bar" dialog.
iconic=-1 is what you get when you check the option "Run maximized".

If the button you are editing points to another button bar (a subbar) then iconic=1 means "Show as menu".

If iconic= is not present or just says iconic= then it means iconic=0. Whether iconic=0 is present or not depends on how you started editing the button:
1. If you use the menu: "Configuration" -> "Button bar" and then find and edit the button in the "Change button bar" dialog then iconic=0 is set. Same thing if you right click on the blank space in the end of the button bar and choose "Change".

2. If you on the other hand right click on an button in the bar and choose "Change" then the dialog "Change single button" opens, and if you press OK in this dialog with "Run minimized" unchecked, then no iconic=0 is set and an existing iconic=0 for that button is removed.


Also if you copy and paste a button to the bar, then the items in the .bar file are mixed up and not written in sequence. If you open the "Change button bar" dialog and press OK, then the items in the .bar file will be sorted correctly again and missing iconic=0 are added.

May I ask, where can I find info as complete as you have given me?
This particular kind of info is not really to find anywhere - it is based on scrutinizing what TC does.

It is an empirical knowledge. :D
However often some information may be found in TC help, TC history, this site and TC wiki (or elsewhere in the Internet).
