variables in object names

I wanted to change 30 images at once.

TImage1, Timage2, Timage3......... etc...

A simple for next loop could do it if only I could substitute a variable in
the object name

e.g.     Timage(a)

The closest I've got is defining an array of Timages and then linking them
to the real images

e.g. Tempimage[1]:=Timage1
       Tempimage[2]:=Timage2

Tempimage[a]      works, but I know in my heart it's a cop out. I am a
newbie but I want to learn...

Is it possible... and how...???


Many thanks,

Just use:

TImage[i]:=findcomponent('TImage'+inttostr(i));

or directly use something like: findcomponent(yourcomponentname);

Hi, this is just a general method, for special perpose, you can use:

TImage[i]:=findcomponent('TImage'+inttostr(i)) as TImage;
