Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

The idea behind this exercise is to show a form giving your name and a (possibly flattering?) picture of yourself.  To do this, first create a new form called frmResourceUse as follows (the rectangle is a PictureBox control):

The form contains a label and a PictureBox control

Add resources to your project:

  • A string called YourName (type in your name against this)
  • An existing image called Himbo or Bimbo (choose according to your gender!)

Attach code to the form's load event so that:

  • the label shows the value of the YourName resource
  • the PictureBox shows the image stored in the Himbo or Bimbo resource

This is what you should see when you run your application if you're male:

A good likeness?

When everything's working OK, close down your form.
