zonk,

this is not possible, because the Trichedit is a descendant of the windows richedit, which doesn't has these capabilities...

Just test it by pasting a wordpad text with image to your richedit... text will be displayed, but image not!

Go to this page and download this freeware component

TRichEditWithOle

find sources etc at his homepage http://wet.kiss.uni-lj.si/~k4fe0106/ 

also, look at this thread ...

Ziffnab is not completely Right. The control itself has a couple of com extensions that are not implemented in the VCL (Omission from borland/inprise).
(But you can still do the trick)
Yes, this IS possible, even easy, with a little trickery.

You need to implement just two -documented- COM interfaces
-IRichEditOleCallback
-IRichEditOle
I found them a couple of years ago in MS C++ headerfiles.
RichOle.h.
I'll send you an answer if you want. It works great!
The code is a simplified version of something I found on the web,
I simplified it for an SDGN session by me last September.

Hi Thaddy, correct, that's why I gave the link to the component, which implements them. Zif.
