For SharePoint (2007/2010) if I want to build custom UI to render a Document Library (pretty it up a bit), is there a field on a Document Library SPListItem that tells me the link to the document icon? For example, when I display an Excel file, the little Excel graphic is shown? If not available on the SPListItem as a field, is there a way to access it through some standard API?
