Ok, then ..here is the new code that updates it every time you press the button
---------
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
       DC : hDC;
     begin
       Image1.Canvas.Brush.Color := Color;
       Image1.Canvas.FillRect(Image1.Canvas.ClipRect);
       DC := GetDC(RichEdit1.Handle);
       BitBlt(Image1.Canvas.Handle,0,0,Width, Height, DC,0,0, SRCCOPY);
       ReleaseDC(RichEdit1.Handle, DC);
     end;
-------------

With TRichEdit it is quite difficult. Look at the PrintPreview control on this page:
http://www.radix.net/~bziegler/Delphi/ 
it has full source included and has a function that renders the contents of a TRichEdit onto a canvas. Just provide a bitmap canvas instead, that'S it.

Hello Duke. Is this what you need???

I've used the Button's OnClick() event...
-----------
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  DC : hDC;
begin
  DC := GetDC(RichEdit1.Handle);
  BitBlt(Image1.Canvas.Handle,0,0,Width, Height, DC,0,0, SRCCOPY);
  ReleaseDC(RichEdit1.Handle, DC);
end;

thanks! this is really good'n'simple solution , but it works only one time-the first time I press the button. If I make changes to the richedit and press the button again, it does not update the image
thanks

I just don't know what to do with this TPreviewPrinter component.
First I assin to it richedit1.text. Then I should assign the contents of Previewprinter1 to Image1. How? What is the property that represents contents of TpreviewPrinter(like Picture.bitmap in Timage case)?
