How do i draw a bmp and text in an individual THeaderSection
of a THeader Control.

When I use the Canvas to place a bmp on it, it shows on each section.

Something like this?:

procedure TMainForm.HeaderControl1DrawSection(
  HeaderControl: THeaderControl; Section: THeaderSection;
  const Rect: TRect; Pressed: Boolean);
var
  MaxWidth, Trailer, Height, RMargin: Integer;
  TruncStr : string;
  Truncated: Boolean;
begin
  with HeaderControl1.Canvas do begin
    TruncStr := Section.Text;
    Trailer := TextWidth('...');
    with rect do begin
      Height := (Bottom-Top); RMargin := Right-Height; MaxWidth := RMargin-2;
      Truncated := False;
      while (TextWidth(TruncStr)+Trailer)>MaxWidth
      do begin
        SetLength(TruncStr, Length(TruncStr)-1);
        Truncated := True;
      end;
      if Truncated then AppendStr(TruncStr, '...');
      TextRect(Rect, 4, (Height-TextHeight('A')) div 2, TruncStr);

{ --- Here is where you determine which section you're drawing -------------- }
      case Section.Index of
        0: begin
          rectangle(RMargin+4, top+4, Right-4, Bottom-4);
        end;
        1: begin
          Ellipse(RMargin+4, top+4, Right-4, Bottom-4);
        end;
      end;
{ --------------------------------------------------------------------------- }

    end;
  end;
end;
