I think this should be an easy one; I need a TOutline component where the elements can have different colors and/or fonts.
I've seen one once, but I deleted it, and I can't seem to loctate it again.

It MUST run on windows 3.1 (Delphi 1).

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

OK, I will draw the text myself, but I dont really know how to start on this. Do you have a small example of a 'OnDrawItem'-procedure? I tried this line -  (Control as TOutline).Canvas.TextRect(Rect, 0,0, 'Test'); - and I expected that 'Test' would be drawn for every item in the tree, but I only got it once (in the top-left corner of the tree-canvas). And what about the lines connecting the items, and the bitmaps? They are all gone.

Is the above the old bug of the TOutline? Maybe my project is still using the old one. I have now removed outline.dcu from /lib and I can still compile without errors. Are the lines (the connecting ones) supposed to be drawn by the control?
