Create a resource file in which you will add the images, then you will copy it to new project and you have it there.

Right click on project -> resources, add resource, new image  and pick the type of image you are using.


hope this helps.

Hi wwnosal,

I don't get it.

Let's say I have 3 folder:

1. Image.
2. Project1.
3. Project2.

Project1 has done perfectly with buttons and image on it.

Project1 still open.

Then I create new project (not copied from Project1), add new form (form1) and copy groupbox of button from form of project1 to form1 of project2. After that the images of buttons in form1 of project2 is gone.

Thank you.

How are you placed image on buttons and which IDE you are using. By adding image from properties window on my VS 2005 Express scenario described by you is working correctly, so I have everything copied.

At project1, I add button to a form and add image using button image property. Choose project resource file.

What's the different between project resource file and local resource ?

Thank you.

OK that's clear now. Resource file is "Project specific" which means that you are adding your graphics into resource file of Project1. In order to have it available after copying the buttons, you would also need to copy the resource file.

If you import from local resource the absolute path to the image is stored and then it will work with Project2 without any other compliations.

To picture it a bit it is in the follwing way:

1. Resource file:
 IDE will look for your image in file ...../ProjectName/ResourceFileName
2. Local resource

Assuming you work on drive D

IDE will look for your image in file D:/your/path/to/image

Furthermore if your not change the resource file name which is Resources.resx it is auto generated.
So in your case your adding image to file Project1/MyProject/Resources.resx but it is searched to be in Project2/MyProject/Resources.resx.


I think you can share a resource file among more projects if you give it a different name than the standard one. Please try doing that. If this not helps find your Resources.resx and copy it into Project2.

Yes, in other word I should use Local Resource, Import then I could copy it to other form without have to worry the resource file.

Using Local Resouce, there is no images added to the project resource file?

Thank you.

Yes use local resource or global resource file but with different name than the standard one (and best located somewhere globally)!
