uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  ComCtrls, ExtCtrls, StdCtrls, Buttons;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    StatusBar1: TStatusBar;
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  private
    procedure StatusIconClick(Sender: TObject);
    procedure DisplayIconImages(ImageList: TImageList; ExeNameList: TStringList;
      WinControl: TWinControl);
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

uses ShellAPI, CommCtrl;

procedure TForm1.StatusIconClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
  WinExec(PChar((Sender as TImage).Hint), SW_ShowNormal);
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;
      Width := ImageList.Width;
      Height := ImageList.Height;
      IconLeft := IconLeft + Width + 5;
      Canvas.Brush.color := StatusBar1.Brush.Color;
      Canvas.FillRect(Canvas.ClipRect);
      ImageList.Draw(Canvas, 0, 0, i);
    end;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
const
  ExeList: array[0..9] of String = (
    'CALC.EXE',
    'CLIPBRD.EXE',
    'NOTEPAD.EXE',
    'REGEDIT.EXE',
    'PBRUSH.EXE',
    'SYSMON.EXE',

    'TERMINAL.EXE'
  );
var
  StringList: TStringList;
  ImageList: TImageList;
  i: integer;
begin
  StringList := TStringList.Create;
  ImageList := TImageList.Create(Self);
  try
    for i := 0 to 9 do
    begin
      Imagelist_AddIcon(ImageList.Handle, ExtractIcon(Handle, PChar(ExeList[i]), 0));
      StringList.Add(ExeList[i]);
    end;
    DisplayIconImages(ImageList, StringList, StatusBar1);
  finally
    StringList.Free;
    ImageList.Free;
  end;
end;
