I have stored some application picture files in my resource collection in VS2010.
I have used these in the designer up until now. However now I need to refer to and use these pictures at runtime, more specifically change the image of a ToolStripMenuItem object.

Just use "My.Resources.xxx" to access the resource:

    ToolStripButton1.Image = My.Resources.ImageNameHere ' <-- It will give you a list to choose from when hitting "." after "Resources"
