This is sort of a follow-up question to one I asked earlier.

I am creating a bunch of buttons at run-time, and I want each button to have a bitmap image displayed on it.

NOTE:  I've noticed that you can dynamically create TButton...but for some reason TSpeedButton and TBitButton don't want to work.  Delphi keeps flaggin the declaration telling me that no corresponding component was found on the form itself.

Try this.....

uses buttons;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  Btn : TSpeedButton;
begin
  Btn := TSpeedButton.Create(self);
  with Btn do
    begin
      Parent := Self;
      Top := 100;
      Left := 100;
      Width := 50;
      Height := 50;
      Glyph := NameOfBitmap;//This would be the image
      Visible := True;
    end;
end;

Check out the latest version of the Map Editor at:

My newest change is there is now a floating Brush Palette from which you can select the Brush you want to paint with.  Pretty cool!
