So I have not generated the event for the picturebox but lets say the picture box is "private void pictureBox2_BeverageItems" followed by curly bracelts . I have been looking all over and couldnt find a correct implementation my guess is to probably use "streamreader" but im still fairly new to that.....

thanks guys

Why so much code needed to paste it here? Next time paste only the code needed. Ok?
Ok, to thread`s topic:
Create an array of images (Bitmap or Image classs). Put a timer (System.Windows.Timer for instance) and initialize it. Set some properties, like the Interval (on how many time the event will rise), subscribe to TICK event (use timer1 += new EventHandler(makeOfMethod);) and then start it when even you need.
Inside the tick event create a for loop of all images and use by one one:

for(int i = 0; i < imageArray.Length; i++)
    pictureBox.Image = imageArray[i];

You can set some other parameters like image size and others.

ok so this is what I have constructed so far in the pictureBox event that will display multiple images:

             private void pictureBox2_BeveragePictureBox(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {

        Image[] image = new Image[6];
        for (int index = 0; index < 6; index++)
        {
            image[index] = Image.FromFile(imageFilePaths[index]);
        }

         myTimer.Tick += new EventHandler(TimerEventProcessor);


         myTimer.Interval = 5000;
         myTimer.Start();


        while(exitFlag == false) {

        Application.DoEvents();
                                } // end of while loop body 

        for (int i = 0; i < imageFilePaths.Length; i++)
            pictureBox2.Image = image[i];

    } // end of pictureBox2 event 

--------------------------------------------------    

I have also included an additional method:

              private static void TimerEventProcessor(Object myObject,
                                       EventArgs myEventArgs)
    {
        myTimer.Stop();


        if (MessageBox.Show("Continue running?", "Count is: " + alarmCounter,
           MessageBoxButtons.YesNo) == DialogResult.Yes)
        {

            alarmCounter += 1;
            myTimer.Enabled = true;
        }
        else
        {
            exitFlag = true;
        } // end of outer else statement 
    } // end of TimerEventProcessor method 

------------------------

then declared a string array to hold images:

              //this array will allow images to be stored to be used for display in the control 
    public string[] imageFilePaths; 

-----------------------

My question now is how do I point to a certain directory , lets say the Bin folder of the entire solution folder so that it pulls those images and displays and changes accordingdly?

You can use a FolderBrowserDialog to view folders and the user can select one, then you can get all the images from inside that folder.

FolderBrowserDialog FBD = new FolderBrowserDialog();
if(FBD.ShowDialog()==DialogResult.OK)
{
    // FBD.SelectedPath contains the Path chosen.
    Directory.GetFiles(FBD.SelectedPath, "*.jpg");
    // This will return an array containing all the JPEG filepaths 
    // in the directory they chose.
}

Hope this Helps!
