I have a pile of resources for a project which the resource manager handles
quite nicely. I have an XML file which contains the name of the resource,
but stored as a string rather than as an Image (it's the name of the

Is there a way that I can have

pictureBox1.Image = foo.Properties.Resources.filename where filename is the
string that contains the filename? I've tried casting the string, but

foo.Properties.Resources is showing all of the resources available and the
files are there.


I have an rtf text box and I have two rtf files held in the resources. I
created the rtf files in OpenOffice and can load them back in and the
formatting is there.

I try to load them into a form using


and it comes out in plain text. No formatting or anything like that.

Am I missing something here?
