OK, I found this program on the internet and for the life of me I can NOT figure out how this guy did this, so I'm hoping someone can help me!

See the attached screen shot, but somehow this guy figured out how to load the System.Drawing.Bitmaps to the this ImageList and I would like to do the same thing in my program, but I don't know how he did it!  Does anyone know how to do this in the design view as shown in the screen shot?

Thanks,
Mark

Double click on ImageList control on Toolbox to add to your form (not directly on the form). In the property list (see screen shot below), click on ... button to open the image collection editor and then click on Add button to add the images to the list:

If you want to have all the images named System.Drawing.Bitmap, after you load the images to the list, just delete its name in the property list, see screen shot below:

I think your missing my point, I know how to add images to the Imagelist, what I can't figure out is how this person linked the images from the System.Drawing.Bitmap to his ImageList.  Hitting Add just allows me to add images from my local computer one, by one.

See my second post above. Just delete the image name from the Name property, then they are all System.Drawing.Bitmap.

OK, now I guess I'm a bit confused by this persons program.  I thought that his images shown were from the System.Drawing.Bitmap or a collection of these images I could use.  I guess I would have to find these pictures (bitmaps) and load each one, by one.

Thanks,
Mark

Also by deleting names, you now have only one way to access the images in the list, by index. Of cause, you could define constants for the indexes.
