How to make a Design mode assist - palette

I want to build my own palette that floats around at design time.  The palette would have a few buttons on it.  One button, for example, would scan the available forms in the project and report them to me.
Is this magic possible?  Its no problem in an authoring system like Multimedia Toolbook, where the distinction between runtime and designtime is less strict.

You need to write your own expert - one of the ways you can extend Delphi.

There are a number of experts on the DSP http://sunsite.icm.edu.pl/delphi which have source -- these will give you good pointers on how to approach the problem.

Cheers,

Raymond.

Ok.  That's gotten me pointing to the right place.  Now I have to find more documentation...  I really want to build a 'simplified' authoring environment around the IDE, yet allow access to all of Delphi's features.
-thanks.
