Hey guys,
I created an outlook add-in.  I would like to assign an image to command bar buttons.  I looked everywhere and have not been able to get anything to work.  Most solutions I found on EE used the “LoadPicture” method, but vb.net does not recognize it.  I believe this is a vb6 method...

Can someone help me out a little....?
Thank you!

Here is my code:
Imports System.Drawing

Public Class ThisAddIn

  Private Sub ThisAddIn_Startup() Handles Me.Startup

  End Sub

  Private Sub ThisAddIn_Shutdown() Handles Me.Shutdown

  End Sub

  Private Sub Application_Startup() Handles Application.Startup
    Dim objCommandBar As Office.CommandBar = Nothing
    Dim objPrintBtn As Office.CommandBarButton
    Dim objSettingsBtn As Office.CommandBarButton
    Dim objPicture As stdole.IPictureDisp

    'Create the Print Attachments CommandBar.
    If objCommandBar Is Nothing Then
      objCommandBar = Application.ActiveExplorer().CommandBars.Add("Print", Office.MsoBarPosition.msoBarTop, False, True)
      objCommandBar.Visible = True
    End If

    objPicture = ?????

    'Create the Print Attachments CommandBar button.
    objPrintBtn = objCommandBar.Controls.Add(Office.MsoControlType.msoControlButton, 1, "", Reflection.Missing.Value, True)
    objPrintBtn.Visible = True
    objPrintBtn.Picture = objPicture
    'objPrintBtn.Caption = "Print Attachments"

    'Create the Print Settings CommandBar button.
    objSettingsBtn = objCommandBar.Controls.Add(Office.MsoControlType.msoControlButton, 1, "", Reflection.Missing.Value, True)
    objSettingsBtn.Visible = True
    objSettingsBtn.Caption = "Settings"

    'Create the Print Attachments and Settings handler/event.
    AddHandler objPrintBtn.Click, AddressOf PrintBtn_Click
    AddHandler objSettingsBtn.Click, AddressOf SettingBtn_Click

  End Sub

  Private Sub PrintBtn_Click()

    MsgBox("PrintBtn_Click")

  End Sub

  Private Sub SettingBtn_Click()

    MsgBox("SettingBtn_Click")

  End Sub

End Class
