if the column for your icon is set as DataGridViewImageColumn then you could do:

For Each row As DataGridViewRow In DataGridView1.Rows
if row.Cells(3).Value = "OFFLINE" then
row.Cells(0).Value = My.Resources.offline
else
row.Cells(0).Value = My.Resources.online
end if
Next

note: you can do the condition also at runtime instead of looping trough. I have used the my.resources where i store my images. i just find it easier :$

I already try this. but it is not working the result showing is System.Drawing.Bitmap

Please advice?

Thank you!

can u tell me what format your images have?

The Resource all images is *.ico

thanks.

ok you have created a datagridview with 3 columns. the first colum u want to show the icon i guess? if so please set this column to type imagecolumn.
the code you posted in the first post is wrong. First if you have just 3 columns then item(3) does not exist. it starts with 0 and your posted code will add a new column to your grid for each row. instead of this you do this:

For each row as datagridviewrow in frmAddCard.CardInStockView.Rows
Try
If row.cell(2).Value = "OFFLINE" Then
row.cell(0).Value=frmAddCard.ImageList1.Images.Item(3)
Else
row.cell(0).Value=frmAddCard.ImageList1.Images.Item(0)
End If
Catch ex As Exception

End Try
Next
