ordering toolbuttons

Is there any way to change the order of toolbuttons at designtime? It's a pity there is not a "button index' property like with TTabSheets.

BTW, I have plenty of icon.bmp collections but don;t seem to have good ones for reindexing/packing/deleting/zapping/clearing - any collections recommened?

Thanks, Tom.

Hi!

If it's not to many buttons this should work: Open the .dfm file for the form that contains the toolbuttons, locate their object declarations and cut and paste them into the order you want. I've used that technique myself once.

I was hoping there was another way, but that will work if onw doesn't want to delete/rename. Thanks, tom.
