Graphic Editing

I know that delphi 2 has a built in graphic editor. But I
want to be able to edit graphics within an application.
How do I do this?

Thanks - Joe Wirtz

You can use the Delphi forms canvas or the TImage canvas for drawing.
Some of the built in delphi drawing functions are:

MoveTo - The MoveTo method changes the current drawing position to the coordinates passed in X and Y.

LineTo - The LineTo method draws a line on the canvas from the current drawing position (specified by the
PenPos property) to the point specified by X and Y and sets the pen position to (X, Y).

Rectangle - The Rectangle method draws a rectangle on the canvas with its upper left corner at the point (X1, Y1)
and its lower right corner at the point (X2, Y2).

When you draw delphi uses the current pen, brush and font properties.

If you look at the TCanvas help it will give a complete list of all of the Drawing functions.

What I'm really looking for is a component that works just
like the built in graphic editor under 'tools' in D2. My
real intent is to edit icons from an application.

Thanks - Joe

I have programming two program in DELPHI 16 bits. For editing graphics in a program you must use the Timage component.
I have a button for a graphic preview as Corel Draw.
There is not enough place here for the demo.
Contact my EMAIL for more info. I can send you the complete source of this program.
