How to add image to custom button for PowerPoint 2007 VBA add-in?

Hi,
An awesome expert here made an add-in into PowerPoint for me. When I install the add-in, it creates a button in the add-ins tab with a custom name. I was wondering if there is a way to add an image (my company logo) to that button.

Below is the code for the add-in.
I though it might go after

 NewControl.Caption = "Add FHC Project Number"

But I could not find any image property for NewControl

Is there another way?

Thanks very much!

In 2007 it's much better to create a custom ribbon entry with XML to run the ppam Add In.

JRWilson,

I looked at the link you sent me, everything makes sense and I want to try it, however I am unsure of how to change the XML to bring in a custom image. The code in the example is 'imageMso="AcceptInvitation"' which I guess is some image that is already part of office. Would I just specify the image path there instead?

Hi again Andrey,  

All credit should go to JRWilson, but just to lend a hand:

In the Custom UI editor, do Insert-->Icons-->(select a file)

It will name the file and you reference it in your XML with "image=" instead of "imageMso="

HTH,
Joe
