    Default Re: How can I incorporate images when I click a button

    I've added code tags to your post. The idea is that you put [code] at the start of a section of code and [/code] at the end: that way the code will be formatted when it appears here on a web page.

    Does your code compile? If not and you can't understand the compiler's messages, post them.
