    I use resource files to store the images on my website but can't seem to get them to work on the rad button.  On an asp button I would just set the image URL to something like this



    ="<%$ Resources:Images,AddRecord16%>"


    When I try to do this on a rad button the image doesn't show up.  I know the image exists because I use it on regular asp buttons. How do I set the image on a rad button using a resource file.

    Thank You

    Hi Tracy,

    Note that the background image of a RadButton control should be set through its inner property Image as shown in this online demo. Also, the Width and Height properties of the control need to be specified when it is configured as an image button.

    For your convenience I have attached a sample project that demonstrates the desired setup. Please use it as a reference for your further development.
