I was looking for icons to use in MenuItems in a WPF menu and found that there are a lot of questions on how to do that. It’s not very difficult, so maybe the documentation is not too clear about it.
Create a folder in your project, for example “res” or “resources” or “images”. Put some graphics files in there by right-clicking on the folder, choosing Add and then choosing Add existing items.
To use these images in your XAML, follow this example:
<MenuItem Header="E_xit" Click="btnCancel_Click"> <MenuItem.Icon> <Image Source="Resources/Exit.png" Width="20" /> </MenuItem.Icon> </MenuItem>
In my project, the images are in the Resources folder. And that’s all there is to it.
