Hi,

I need to change the source of an image on button click.

This is the code I have typed but the error I am getting is

"Value of type string cannot be converted into 'system.windows.media.imagesource'
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            Dim ImageURI As String = ("/MoviesOnTheGo;component/DueDate.png")
            Image_Poster.Source = ImageURI
        End Sub

Image_Poster.imageURL  Does not exist
the only property available in image is ImageFailedEvent
