I have different color skins (Background images) in my application and string named color ie:

string color;

skin_blue
skin_green
skin_red

yes I can do this with an if statement but I would rather do something like this below

BackgroundImage = Properties.Resources.skin+color; Is something like this possible

please can I get the exact code, thanks

You don't have to use the shorthand version, you can use the expanded version:

    BackgroundImage = Properties.Resources.ResourceManager.GetObject("skin_" + color);
