Storing Images for use by Custom Controls

I am sorry to say that my solution does not work if you paste the group on
the same card. 

However Simons solution works when "of me" is added in the repeat loop 

resolve image is not granular enough to distinguish between groups. Once you
paste the group onto a different card or stack then it works.


It could also be simplified to the following code since the images for icons
of the custom control are known

on newGroup
   set the hilitedIcon of button "bOne" of me to the short id of image
"redQMark" of me
   set the icon of button "bOne" of me to the short id of image "greenRound"
of me
end newGroup

Kind regards
