An object implementing IContainer to associate with this instance of ImageList.

The ImageList constructor enables you to associate a ImageList with any Container object. By associating the ImageList like this, you hand over control of the lifetime of the ImageList to the Container. This can be useful if you use a number of components in your application, and want to dispose of all of them simultaneously. For example, if you associate a ToolTip, an ImageList, and a Timer with a Container, calling Dispose on the Container will force disposal of all of these components as well.
