here's the code I have to far......I can only change the image once: (


  Dim m As Image

        For Each m In ImageList1.Images



            If found = False Then


                btn.Visible = False
                Label2.Image = ImageList1.Images(1)

         


            End If





        Next m

shouldn't this code cycle to the next image is another incorrect guess is entered?

what programming language are you using? looks like vb?

without a bit more of code I doubt we can tell you anything, but I guess (wildly) that you run this code when a choice has been made, but this will only set 1 image, always the same one.
you will have to control which of the images you have already displayed...

also, you do                
Label2.Image = ImageList1.Images(1)
and it should rather be like this:
Label2.Image = m

or probably better:
have a variable (n) that counts the number of wrong guesses, and simply get that image, without any loop:

Label2.Image = ImageList1.Images(n)

I've tried this

dim guess as integer

for img = 0 to val(strWord.length +2)

if found = false then

btn.visible = false
label2.image = imagelist1.images(img)

next img

but it doesn't cycle throught the imagelist

and yes I'm using vb.net

why do you cycle through the list?
you "know" exactly which image you want to display...

simply do this line:
label2.image = imagelist1.images(val(strWord.length) +2)

 Dim m As Integer
        m = 1





        If found = False Then


            btn.Visible = False
            Label2.Image = ImageList1.Images(m)


            m = m + 1


        End If

the variable m needs to be a member of the form, not the function you are calling to change the image...

no, not in the form_sub, but on the form class level:

Public Class Form1
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

    Dim m As Integer = 0

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        ....
    End Sub

    ...

End Class

thanks, it works, but could you explain why it needs to be declared there?

if you put it into the function, it will be "erased" from memory when the function is completed.
you can verify that from adding a watch on the variable, and see that it cannot be watched when you go out of the function.
also, when you get back into the function, you will notice that the variable gets recreated and reinitialized to null value ...

putting it at form level will prevent the variable to get out of scope, so keep the value between the function calls..
