I have a question regarding resources eg bitmaps, icons, in vb.net.
At the moment, when working on a form, I am specifying, for example, a bitmap for the background of the form by specifying a link to the bitmap in the properties window.
However, I believe that a bitmap can also be specified in the Resouce tab of the application by right clicking the project in the solution explorer and then opening up the Resouce tab. This allows the user to add strings, bitmaps, icons etc.
My question is whether there is any advantage in either method. I have read on the net that there is something that can be done with satellite assembly files (for different countries) and I don't fully understand this (see http://visualbasic.about.com/od/usingvbnet/a/netres090117.htm
Further, looking at the resulting files and folders and the solution I can't see where the bitmap that has been added exists.
Can anybody enlighten me and answer the questions above.
