Hi

I have derived a component from TImage and I need to have an image showing in the component when I place it on a form as a default image, rather than just having an outline.  It is to be used in a runtime designer.  Is there a way to embed a bmp in the image component at create time without having to load it from a file each time?

Regards

John

Hi jdthedj,

yes, it's easy. Just put your image in *.DCR file.

var
  B: TBitmap;

....
  B := TBitmap.Create.
  B. LoadFromResourceName(Instance, 'IMAGENAME');
