end;

procedure TForm1.DisplayIconImages(ImageList: TImageList; ExeNameList: TStringList;
  WinControl: TWinControl);
var
  IconLeft: integer;
  i: integer;
begin
  IconLeft := ImageList.Width div 2;
  for i := 0 to ImageList.Count - 1 do
    with TImage.Create(Self) do
    begin
      Parent := WinControl;
      Hint := ExeNameList.Strings[i];
      ShowHint := True;
      OnClick := StatusIconClick;
      Top := (WinControl.Height - ImageList.Height) div 2;
      Left := IconLeft;

  ImageList := TImageList.Create(Self);
  try
    for i := 0 to 9 do
    begin
      Imagelist_AddIcon(ImageList.Handle, ExtractIcon(Handle, PChar(ExeList[i]), 0));
