    Hi all

    I have a custom web-control, when validation fails I want an image to appear
    beside the control.

    My images are stored in the projects resources.resx file - can I get at this
    and render them to the client?

    Thanks
    Kev

    In a round-about way, yes.
    You can't stream the image to the client through your web control.
    Remember...the purpose of a WebControl is rendering HTML.
    You couldm however, have your WebControl render html that looks something
    like:
    <img src="resimage.aspx?resId=ErrorImage">

    Then create an ASPX called resimage.aspx that gets teh data from the
    resource file.
