Place an Image on a button WPF

81 New Member
Hey All,
I want to store an image in a resource, and then use this image on a button. But I can't seem to get this working. In WPF should I be using resources to store the icons? Or should this be done differently?

Edit: I have Added a png to my Resources, and then in XAML tried:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.                <comp:CFButton x:Name="btnScreenUp">
  2.                     <Image Source="Resources/UpScreen.png"/>
  3.                 </comp:CFButton>
But this fails to compile. Atleast is says it does. If I run the application..it works. This is very bizarre. Any thoughts?

Also, the button is within a frame, and the frame is referenced within a window. In the window, the button shows up right, but when I look at the Frame xaml, it complains of an error and won't render.

Nevermind, closing and reopening VS fixed the issue.

I'm working with a CGI program that was using several standard buttons for input using <input type="submit" name="abuttonName" ... Now, I'm trying to replace the standard buttons with images using an onClick function. For 1 button it's easy enough - document.forms.submit(); but how do I let the CGI script know which one of the buttons were clicked?

so I have this application I'm nearly finished with. The only thing the client has requested is the ability to submit the form by pressing "enter". I didn't think this would be a huge pain in the ass and the app will be used internally so I'm not too worried about users who aren't using javascript. I'm using the following javascript to detect whether or not they've hit enter: if(document.layers) {
