Hi all.

Currently I have a windows form created in vb.net that has a button that has the image of the Excel icon. I was wondering is there a way to simply show the Excel image instead of it appearing in the middle of the button so the Excel image would be the button.

Don't know if this is possible but just wondering.

Thanks!

What to you mean exactly by the "Excel image"?

You might use a PictureBox with your image and react to its Click event, but a button is usually a better indication for the user that he will trigger something if he clicks on it.
