Hello,

In Visual Studio under Properties I have inserted image.jpg
I want to use it in the background. I start by backgroundImage = new Bitmap(@"...");
What should I write instead of ...?
When I drag the image.jpg entry it gives me this path: C:\Documents and Settings\Martin\Desktop\Xperia\MMCalc\Properties\image.jpg
Unfortunately when I use it I get error that path is wrong.
I know that I can just use pictureBox, but this way has less flicker.

Can you help me to understand how this path works?

Thank you

Add the Image as an "Image Resource" using the Project properties Dialog.

Then use code like:
Image backgroundImage = Properties.Resources.MyBackgroundResourceImage; //MyBackgroundResourceImage is the name of the Resource.
