new ImageBrush(new BitmapImage(new Uri(BaseUriHelper.GetBaseUri(this), "Images/icon.png")))

Where should I put the icon.png?

I thought I should put the icon.png into /application/Images/icon.png where the application (Executeable) is running from /application

This is my line

            Brush brsh = new ImageBrush(new BitmapImage(new Uri("Images//WLM-icon.png")));
It cause an exception on Uri()


            new Uri("Images//WLM-icon.png")      This expression causes side effects and will not be evaluated      System.Uri


I put the image file in this directory
C:\Users\user1\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\TestWPF\TestWPF\bin\Debug\Images

I am not sure what"s go wrong.  Can someone help?

You better create a Solution Folder (for example: "Icons") in your project and put your images there.
You may then reach your folder this way:
new Uri("pack://application:,,,/<yourProjectName>;component/Icons/WLM-icon.png")

Open in new window


I hope this helps.

Regards.
