    calling files from resource folder

    HI i need some help in using a picturebox to call pictures out of the resource folder and loop it

    previously i have coded:


    Me.PictureBox1.Image = Image.FromFile(Application.StartupPath + "\\JPG LandoltC\" + filePath + ".jpg")


    where filePath is the function to locate the name of the pictures







    but now i have to put everything into the .exe to make it more "sightly"


    so now
    i'm trying

    Me.PictureBox1.Image = My.Resources.filePath

    and its not working... can someone guide me?

    It's your file, so you know what's in there. No reason for a loop. Just include the code!

    But there is a need for me to loop it.

    its like this.. when the form shows up. it will have to detect the input to see if its right or wrong and loop to the next randomise picture.

    after 5 pics it will have to search for the next level and show the pics again for another 5 time till wrong inputs are detected 3/5times..

    all these were coded in my function getfilepath, but after adding the pics into the resource folder, i have no idea how to call and loop it.

    First, load them into an array of some type. Then, you can loop thru it using a MOD 5, which will do what you want. 5 MOD 5 is 0, while 16 MOD 5 is 1
