We're not gonna take it. No, we ain't gonna take it

Posted by The World According to Marc on August 8, 2003

So here I am, happily working on my application. Free as a bird and not a care in the world. When suddenly, a 300 ton anvil comes crashing down on my fingers. And written along it's side is "Image List".

I've just now added the same collection of images to yet another instance of an Image List for the gazillionth time this month. Every toolbar in my application has a common set of icons, and because I can't inherit/wrap/share the Image List, I'm forced to add it manually to every Image List control on every form.

I'm not looking for the world, I just want a Image List that I can share with every toolbar in my application. And No, I don't want to create a static image list an attach it in code. I want it in my fancy designer damn it! (how's that for diplomatic?).

So my dear friends at Microsoft, fix this! Or I'll be forced to throw this anvil back at you.
