Hi, I've taken some code from a book and, while the code runs fine from it's own file if put in XAMLPad, if i try running it in blend or VS it won't display the images used on the buttons. This is especially confusing as they appear in the Design view of the application. Is there a setup proces I have forgotten to do? here's the source Window1.xaml
<Window  x:Class="WindowsApplication4.Window1"
  xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
  xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
  Title="Simple Window">
  <Window.Resources>
    <LinearGradientBrush x:Key="backgroundBrush" StartPoint="0,0" EndPoint="1,1">
      <GradientStop Color="Blue" Offset="0"/>
      <GradientStop Color="White" Offset="0.5"/>
      <GradientStop Color="Red" Offset="1"/>
    </LinearGradientBrush>
    <SolidColorBrush x:Key="borderBrush">Red</SolidColorBrush>
  </Window.Resources>
  <Window.Background>
    <StaticResource ResourceKey="backgroundBrush"/>
  </Window.Background>
  <DockPanel>
    <StackPanel DockPanel.Dock="Bottom" Orientation="Horizontal"
      HorizontalAlignment="Center">
      <Button Background="{StaticResource backgroundBrush}"
        BorderBrush="{StaticResource borderBrush}" Margin="5">
        <Image Height="21" Source="zoom.gif"/>
      </Button>
      <Button Background="{StaticResource backgroundBrush}"
        BorderBrush="{StaticResource borderBrush}" Margin="5">
        <Image Height="21" Source="defaultThumbnailSize.gif"/>
      </Button>
      <Button Background="{StaticResource backgroundBrush}"
        BorderBrush="{StaticResource borderBrush}" Margin="5">
        <Image Height="21" Source="previous.gif"/>
      </Button>
      <Button Background="{StaticResource backgroundBrush}"
        BorderBrush="{StaticResource borderBrush}" Margin="5">
        <Image Height="21" Source="slideshow.gif"/>
      </Button>
      <Button Background="{StaticResource backgroundBrush}"
        BorderBrush="{StaticResource borderBrush}" Margin="5">
        <Image Height="21" Source="next.gif"/>
      </Button>
      <Button Background="{StaticResource backgroundBrush}"
        BorderBrush="{StaticResource borderBrush}" Margin="5">
        <Image Height="21" Source="counterclockwise.gif"/>
      </Button>
      <Button Background="{StaticResource backgroundBrush}"
        BorderBrush="{StaticResource borderBrush}" Margin="5">
        <Image Height="21" Source="clockwise.gif"/>
      </Button>
      <Button Background="{StaticResource backgroundBrush}"
        BorderBrush="{StaticResource borderBrush}" Margin="5">
        <Image Height="21" Source="delete.gif"/>
      </Button>
    </StackPanel>
    <ListBox/>
  </DockPanel>
</Window>




Window1.xaml.cs

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Data;
using System.Windows.Documents;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Imaging;
using System.Windows.Shapes;


namespace WindowsApplication4
{
    /// <summary>
    /// Interaction logic for Window1.xaml
    /// </summary>

    public partial class Window1 : System.Windows.Window
    {

        public Window1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

    }
}




Edit: Tried adding the files as a resource in Visual Studio, but that seems to have made no difference other than now showing them as dead links in the 'project' view of Blend! [Edited by - Winegums on June 1, 2007 3:56:13 AM]
