images to add to imageList control, vs 2012 c#

Q1: Do I have to build images myself? If so, is there a place I can get these images for folders, word, excel, txt, etc? Some other applications (MS Access for example) has these images internally.

This is the instruction for adding images to this control: "Add an ImageList named imageList1 to the form and use the Properties window to add two images: a folder image and a document image, in that order."

Q2: What format and size these images ought to be built?

The images can be up to 256x256:

    "The Size that defines the height and width, in pixels, of the images in the list. The default size is 16 by 16. The maximum size is 256 by 256."

Just do a search on Google for royalty free icons...

Hi Mike,

I liked your x-name Idle_mind and always appreciated your greate inputs.

I downloaded VS2012 Image Library.zip from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.imagelist.imagesize(v=vs.110).aspx

BTW, this is not going to be used for commercial purpose.

How can I include these images in my vs2012?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi Mike;

Well not sure who you are responding to seeming Idle_mind has not posted to this thread. If you downloaded the file you can unzip it and all the directories should be marked and images in them. That all depends on where you will be using them some controls you can import them from a file location or you can load them via the Image class or you can add them as resources to the resource image dialog..

To your question, "Thanks for the tip. I just did it now I need to know how to include the package in my vs 2012 permanently?", Just store them on the file system and load the images when you need them.

I will try: add them as resources to the resource image dialog
