How to set the command group icons for different commands?

Hi everyone,

I am adding the icons to the menus and toolbars. The single icon is getting repeated in multiple commands for a single command group. The image is attached here

Here is my code snippet:

SW.ICommandGroup cmdGroup = CmdMgr.CreateCommandGroup2(MainCmdGroupId + (count++), title, toolTip, "", -1, ignorePrevious, ref cmdGroupErr);

string ImageDataPath = "E:\\Laxman Programs\\Test Images";
var playPath = ImageDataPath + @"\play.png";
var seekPath = ImageDataPath + @"\SeekStart.png";
var seekEndpath = ImageDataPath + @"\SeekEnd.png";
var partingpath = ImageDataPath + @"\partingline.png";
var pausePath = ImageDataPath + @"\Pause.png";
var warningPath = ImageDataPath + @"\warning.png";
icons[0] = playPath;
icons[1] = seekPath;
icons[2] = seekEndpath;
cmdGroup.IconList = icons;
// cmdGroup.MainIconList = mainIcons;
cmdIndex0 = cmdGroup.AddCommandItem("Create Layout", locationIndex++, "Create Layout", "Create Layout", 0, "CreateLayout", "EnableCommanMenu", 12);
cmdIndex1 = cmdGroup.AddCommandItem("Identify Elements", locationIndex++, "Identify Elements", "Identify Elements", 1, "IdentifyElements", "EnableCommanAxwMenu", 12);

var materialGroup = CmdMgr.CreateCommandGroup2(MainCmdGroupId + (count++), title + "\\Specify Materials", "Specify Materials", "", locationIndex++, ignorePrevious, ref cmdGroupErr);
icons = new string[3];
icons[0] = partingpath;
icons[1] = pausePath;
icons[2] = warningPath;
materialGroup.IconList = icons;
mtrIndex0 = materialGroup.AddCommandItem("Material 1", -1, "Material 1", "Material1", 0, "EditMaterial", "EnableCommanMenu", 12);
mtrIndex1 = materialGroup.AddCommandItem("Material 2", -1, "Material 2", "Material 2", 1, "EditMaterial", "EnableCommanMenu", 12);



I am not clear about the ImageListIndex in AddcommandItem. From which list we have to set the index.

Here I am just using the hardcoded paths for images. How to use the bit map images from the project Resource

folder? I am trying to access it by using the Properties.Resource.image but it returns the bitmap and the above lists need the icon paths (string).
