In VB6, it was easy to add bitmaps, icons, strings, etc. to the resource file during design time. The resources were read back during runtime using the LoadRes* functions.
I'm finding it difficult to find information which describe how to do this in VB.NET.
What are the steps and tools involved to get static resources added to the project?
Pointers to tutorials, articles, or even a step-by-step how to would be great.
