Getting a picture from resources. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello there,

    Right now im trying to retrieve images from
    Resource, randomly at that within a string

    public static Random rnd = new Random();
    List<string> lst = new List<string>();
                string str = string.Empty;
     str = lst.OrderBy(xx => rnd.Next()).First();

    which retrieves the text within the list etc,

    But im having a bit of an issue retrieving it within
    the resources heres what ive tried to output to
    a picturebox

    pictureBox1.Image = Properties.Resources.ResourceManager.GetObject(str, Properties.Resources.Culture);

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Kind Regards
