im creating a custom button . when user select a image file for button image i want to add it to the project resource (in design time) . how to do this??

im currently drawing image using image location but its not a good solution.

Add the image as new item in your project. Use the *.* filter to locate it, and insert.
on your project, select the image prperties and change the build action to embedded resource.

Hope this helps
