Hi, can anyone quickly describe me how to use ToolButtons ?
They seem to be different from other Buttons...

For Example, let's think, my Application has 5 TButtons.

TB 1 and TB 2 are 'LOAD FILE' and 'SAVE FILE' and
the other 3 are 'BOLD' 'ITALIC' and 'UNDERLINE' (Font)

So, I want to assign a Glyph-BMP to TB 1 and TB 2. I saw i have to use something like a TImageList.
So where is that ImageList (Standard, Additional, Win32 etc.) and how to use it to assign Glyphs to TB1/2

For TB 3, 4 and 5 i just want to single 'char' or string[1]
to show their function "B", "I" and "U"

When i used the Caption-Property, there was nothing to see on the button

thanx, Roger

first: Timagelist is on the win32 page.
How to use it:

compile the resexplorer example.
Open comctl32.dll with it.
resourcenumbers are 120 and 121
Rip the bitmaps , small and large and save then as .bmp's
Now,
Put a Toolbar on the form.
Put a Timagelist on the form.
Connect them by setting the imagelist property from the toolbar to the imagelist.
Load the imagelist with one of your *.bmp file.
Add a button to the Toolbar(Rightclick, add button)
Set the Imageindex property of the Toolbutton to one of the (automatically separated) images in the imagelist. Et... voila.
You'l get the idea once you followed these steps.
