integer IPS_CreateMedia (integer $MediaType)
ID of the newly created media object

$ImageFile = "C:\\Pictures\\Alarm_symbol.png"; // Image file $MediaID = IPS_CreateMedia(1); // create the image in the media pool IPS_SetMediaFile($MediaID, $ImageFile); // connect the image in the media pool with image file IPS_SetName($MediaID, "Alarm"); // Name media object IPS_SetParent($MediaID, 12345); // Sort object to its parent
