Any easy way to do this?
Any components that work like the built in delphi
graphic editor?

Thanks - Joe

I don't understand your question.  Do you want to write your own image editor?   You can embed/link (OLE) the image and when you double click, it will fire up the image editor.  I'm not really sure I know what you are trying to do.

More history...
I have an application that extracts icons from dll's and exe's.
On the same form I'd like to be able select an extracted icon
and edit it from the application - without having to first save
it and go into delphi's built in graphic editor.

Because the internal structure of icons is so different from Bitmaps, this isn't a particularly simple request.  I have a mostly complete icon editor in D1 that I (sadly) had to stop working on some time ago.  I'd be willing to share the critical parts of that, but not for 60 points (hate to seem mercenary, but that's what this site's about).

Have a look at the utility offered in the June 24 issue of PC Magazine, it's an icon editor written in Delphi 2.0!
