    Updating the image on a botton

    Hi

    I have created an application that has bunch of buttons on top and i want to change the image when I click on the button. But unfortunately I can't get it to work.

    Here is the code:

    if (serialPort1.IsOpen)
    {
    tsbCommPortOpenClose.ToolTipText = "Open serial port";
    closeCommPortToolStripMenuItem.Text = "Open serial port";
    tsbCommPortOpenClose.Image = Image.FromFile("Red.bmp");
    serialPort1.Close();
    }
    else
    {
    tsbCommPortOpenClose.ToolTipText = "Close serial port";
    closeCommPortToolStripMenuItem.Text = "Close serial port";
    tsbCommPortOpenClose.Image = image2;
    openComPort(true);
    }

    The second one which changes the image to "image2" works fine. Here is the definition of image2:
    namespace Regress;
    ...
    private Bitmap image2;
    System.Reflection.Assembly myAssembly = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
    StreammyStream = myAssembly.GetManifestResourceStream("Regress.Sharing.gif");
    image2 = new Bitmap(myStream);


    When I do the same with the other image that I want to use, it won't work! I opened the project properties and added the image into the resources too, and it still doesn't work.
    It fails and says the file was not there. I've put a copy of the file in the root directory and one in "Resources" folder but it still doesn't work.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
