Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

property ImageList::ImageCollection^ Images {
	ImageList::ImageCollection^ get();

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms::ImageList::ImageCollection^

The collection of images.

If the image collection has not yet been created, it is created when you retrieve this property.

The following code example demonstrates constructing an ImageList, adding images to the Images property, setting the ImageSize property, and using the Draw method. To run this example, place it in a form containing a button named Button1. The example assumes the existence of FeatherTexture.bmp and Gone Fishing.bmp at c:\Windows\. Change the example accordingly if the bitmaps do not exist on your system, or exist at another location.

   System::Windows::Forms::ImageList^ ImageList1;


   // Create an ImageList Object, populate it, and display
   // the images it contains.
   void Button1_Click( System::Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )

      // Construct the ImageList.
      ImageList1 = gcnew ImageList;

      // Set the ImageSize property to a larger size 
      // (the default is 16 x 16).
      ImageList1->ImageSize = System::Drawing::Size( 112, 112 );

      // Add two images to the list.
      ImageList1->Images->Add( Image::FromFile( "c:\\windows\\FeatherTexture.bmp" ) );
      ImageList1->Images->Add( Image::FromFile( "C:\\windows\\Gone Fishing.bmp" ) );

      // Get a Graphics object from the form's handle.
      Graphics^ theGraphics = Graphics::FromHwnd( this->Handle );

      // Loop through the images in the list, drawing each image.
      for ( int count = 0; count < ImageList1->Images->Count; count++ )
         ImageList1->Draw( theGraphics, Point(85,85), count );

         // Call Application.DoEvents to force a repaint of the form.

         // Call the Sleep method to allow the user to see the image.
         System::Threading::Thread::Sleep( 1000 );
