Displaying Jpeg images in a form

Good day all,

Could someone put up a code fragment for grabbing and displaying a jpeg on a form? The reference to where the file is could be a field in a database, or a BLOB. (Well, actually, those are the same things.) I'm pretty much just looking to display some jpegs on a form, though.

I'll be poking around Tjpeg this evening...

Place a TJPEGImage component on your form. Put a jpeg image in it like this:

MyJPEGImage.LoadFromFile('MyJpeg.jpg');

or

MyJPEGImage.LoadFromStream(TFileStream.Create('MyJPEG.jpg', rmOpenRead)).

The latter one can be used with a TMemoryStream if you want to read the JPEG out of a BLOB...

Cheers,

Raymond.

I don't have that component... I have Delphi 3 and use this:


unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,JPEG;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    procedure FormClick(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}



procedure TForm1.FormClick(Sender: TObject);
var JPG: TjpegImage;
begin
if FileExists('c:\a.jpg') then begin
    JPG := TJpegImage.Create;
    try
      JPG.LoadFromFile('c:\a.jpg');
      Canvas.Draw(0,0, JPG);
    finally
      JPG.Free;
    end;
end;
end;

end.




try this, ( you have to double click on the OnClick event of the form on the object inspector ).

then run it, click on the form, and there you have it !

Ah, thanks both of you. In combination with the example in the delphi help, that gives me a pretty good handle on it...
