     I hate maintaining ImageList controls, especially for larger projects where there might be several forms that can contain two or more of them on each form and have them same images. I prefer instead to use a Resource file for all resources and extract the items as needed. This provides faster load times for forms, creates smaller executables (since you only need one copy of each image), and becomes easier to maintain since all items are located in one place. (Notice there is no .frx file for this project) I loaded all images from the resource file and into the same ImageList control. I also added the capability in this sample to change the size of the toolbar buttons to show another advantage of doing it this way.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
