I've been able to configure the app icon for my app part, which appears in the app catalog in SharePoint. However, when my app is inserted onto a page a grey cube is rendered, rather than the icon. Does anyone know how to configure this in my app setup?

insert app parts


In the elements.xml file of the App-Part you add a property CatalogIconImageUrl with the path to the image. Note that the image has to be 16x16 pixels in size

   <property name="CatalogIconImageUrl" type="string">path/to/image.png</property>
  • This creates an error when trying to deploy the app: ClientWebPart has the Property CatalogIconImageUrl which cannot be used since its declared on a base class

Seems like the icon file name is hardcoded to "SPStoreFrontAppDefault.16x16x32.png" and cannot be changed for app parts:
