Delphi : Q.10291114

From: baudewyns
Title: "Icon and TStream

 How can I , or if it is possible to adapt the
Icon and TStream program to a Bitmap and TStream? Obviously, at least to me, there was no adaptation that is a substitute for  
 the program line    >>>> DrawIcon(Canvas.Handle, 0, 0, mbp.handle);
since DrawIcon must be a primitive and  DrawBitmap is not.

Do you mean a Windows Bitmap (HBITMAP) or a Delphi bitmap (TBitmap)?

If TBitmap, then how about:

Canvas.Draw(0, 0, MyBitmap);
