I have no trouble embedding resources into my project into the resx file and using them for things like ImageLists. For example selecting a background image for a control, I simply click on the [...] button in the properties window for background image and a popup window allows me to select "Project resource file: Resources.resx" and lists the selectable images I've already embedded to choose from.
Yet how come when I select a Form and click [...] to select its icon it forces me to browse on my hard disk for a file instead of linking directly to the already-embedded resource? I don't want to have to keep adding copies of the same icon for every form I want to apply it to. Is there a reason for this or a way around getting this to work properly using the layout manager? I've found some pages that talk about how to code it into the source and force it to work that way but I'd like to know how to do it in the designer.
