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

public virtual Image Image { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Image
The Image to be displayed.

The Image, ImageAlign, ImageIndex, ImageKey, and ImageScaling properties pertain to various aspects of image handling. Use images in ToolStrip controls by setting these properties directly or by setting the run-time–only ImageList property.

Image scaling is determined by the interaction of properties in both ToolStrip and ToolStripItem, as follows:

The following code example demonstrates the Image, ImageAlign, DisplayStyle , and TextAlign properties for a ToolStripButton. This example is part of a larger example available in the ToolStripButton class overview.

			this.toolStripButton1.Image = Bitmap.FromFile("c:\\NewItem.bmp");
			this.toolStripButton1.DisplayStyle = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItemDisplayStyle.ImageAndText;
			this.toolStripButton1.ImageAlign = System.Drawing.ContentAlignment.MiddleLeft;
			this.toolStripButton1.Name = "toolStripButton1";
			this.toolStripButton1.Text = "&New";
			this.toolStripButton1.TextAlign = System.Drawing.ContentAlignment.MiddleRight;
			this.toolStripButton1.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.toolStripButton1_Click);
