VB.Net Working with My.Resources dynamically

Hi Experts,

I'm trying to dynamically work with resource files.
I have created a resource file 'Audio' and added several mp3 files to it.

Normally I would access them via My.Resources.Audio.File1, however I would like to access them based on a combobox's text.

I tried CallByName(), but i cannot get that to work.  

Any suggestions on getting this working?

       Dim o As Object
        Select Case ComboBox1.SelectedIndex
            Case 0
                o = My.Resources.Audio.File1
            Case 1
                o = My.Resources.Audio.File2
             Case 2
                o = My.Resources.Audio.File3
              ......
        End Select

That's not really dynamically (or at least what i think of as "dynamic").

Here's what i came up with

Dim audio_library As My.Resources.Audio = New My.Resources.Audio
Dim audio() As Byte = audio_library.ResourceManager.GetObject(GameNamesList.Text)

It seems to work, anyone have any negatives against using that?
