Hi, I need a label or anything else that can support this option and is able to be centered on a form.
The component must have some kind of text property where i can change the color of individual letters one by one
in a word but without changing the whole word. Let me know where i can find this.

You could do this with a component derived from TPanel. Set the Bevel properties to bvNone and overwrite the Paint-handler.
Use the Canvas.TextRect while changing the Canvas.Font.Color property for each letter and determine the coordinates for the next letter with Canvas.TextWidth.

Hope this helps,

I think you should have a look at:

ftp://ftp.cdrom.com/public/programming/delphi/ftp/d10free/
or
ftp://ftp.cdrom.com/public/programming/delphi/ftp/d20free/

Most of the examples are for Delphi 1.0/2.0 use, but are working excellent in Delphi 3.0 .

The examples concerns mostly visual components and upgraded DB-components.

There're especially many TLabel descendants. So go enjoy yourself.

I have been there to take a look at /d20free and found:

bwmarqee.zip
gradbtn.zip
graphic.zip
marscap.zip
netgrad.zip
cm20.zip

Some of them are trivial, if this is not what you are looking for, I could easily code one for you.
