Hi All.
I am looking to change the image in my Checkbox(button style) to a .jpg I have in the resource file, when it is checked.
I know to use the Image.FromFile("") but I don't know the string of the file if it is in the resource file(other than the complete path), if the program was used on a diff computer the complete path would not be correct(c:\MyComputer\...). How do I access just the resource file?

You have to add the image to the resources of your project (Resources.resx)
If you do like this, you can access the image with:
And you will have no need to do "Image.FromFile"

If you placed the image in the resource tab of your app.
you call it by saying.....
    MyIImage =   My.Resources.MyImage   <-------------- MyImage is the name of your image file
