I've got a large document whose table of contents is being generated by the usual \tableofcontents command. I'd really like to include a small image next to each line in the TOC. How can I do that?

EDIT: Answering the question in the comment below, I'm using Article, and I'd like a different image for each SubSection.


Here's an example using the tocstyle package which is part of KOMA-script. (You may replace \rule with \includegraphics from the graphicx package.) Graphics for the "section" ToC entries may be changed using \setsectiongraphics.



  \addtocontents{toc}{\protect\renewcommand{\sectiongraphics}{\protect #1}}%

\settocstylefeature{entryhook}{\rule{0.15cm}{0.15cm}\hspace{0.15cm}}% for all ToC levels
    {\sectiongraphics\hspace{0.3cm}\bfseries}% "[1]" for sections
