We just use the WinXP images for stuff like that, John.  The easiest way
to handle images is with an ImageList control dropped on the form.  Once
you have pointed the control at an image file (or several if you like),
you can copy that imageList control to other forms when you need it and
just point to the image in the list.

Subject: [dba-VB] Resource files

I need a bitmap to put on a button.  Specifically I need a folder icon.
I know the property to use, and it opens a "resource locator" but I
haven't a clue where such resource files might be.  Does VS 2005 come
with a resource file stuffed full of goodie images?  Any tips on where
to go get one?
