Visual Basic : picture box won't load my image. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody,

    I have an image box in my visual basic project. When I try to add a resource image to it, it simply does not load the image.

    This problem also occurs with background images. However, when I load the image via Local rather than .resx, it works.

    Any suggestions or fiixes?

    • How large are the images that will not load?
    • How are you performing the load, might help to show your code for loading from resources.
    • What do you mean by local?
    • Are there any error messages?
