I am using Delphi 1 and 3 and I would like to use a GIF or JPEG image placed on a form for a "splash" screen. I want to have the background color of the GIF or JPEG match the same color as the form's color. Since Delphi 1 and 3 do not support GIF, and Delphi 3 supports only JPEG and BMP, could I instead try to change the form's color to match the bitmap background?
If so, how would I do that (code example)?
One would need to fetch a pixel color (let's assume is at the bottom left corner of the JPEG) and then change the form's color to match that pixel.
How can I do this?
