HI Experts,

I have a WINFORM,1 Image-List, 1 Picture-box and a button... In the Image-List, I have several pictures... (1) = (7)..etc..

I've seen several examples for doing this from a file-path... if I had 1 Picture-box and 4 buttons... then each button would pick an image from my Image-List and occupy the Picture-box.

Thanks,
Roberto

in the button1 click set this piece of code

PictureBox1.Image = ImageList1.Images.Item(0)   'It is Zero based .This will get the firs picture of your image List.Do the same for the other buttons

*Assuming your Buttons are named Button1 --> ButtonXXX so we can strip the "Button" part from the beginning and get an "Index" for each one.

You can use the Handles keyword to make ALL the buttons fire the same handler...just list them all after the "Handles" keyword.  Then you can change the Image being used from the ImageList based on the Button that was clicked.

Something like this to make it generic:
    Private Sub AllButtons_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click, Button2.Click, Button3.Click, Button4.Click, Button5.Click
        Dim btn As Button = CType(sender, Button)
        Dim btnIndex As String = btn.Name.ToLower.TrimStart("button".ToCharArray)
        Dim index As Integer
        Try
            index = Integer.Parse(btnIndex) - 1
            If index >= 0 And index < ImageList1.Images.Count Then
                PictureBox1.Image = ImageList1.Images(index)
            End If
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
    End Sub

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Haha...I never really pay attention to the points on the question.  Did I give too much code for 100 pts?...  =)

Not sure why, but neither solutions worked :(

This means, the problem must lie with me.

PictureBox1 is just blank.
