Showing only one image in a TSpeedButton

Hi

When I load a glyph into a TSpeedButton at runtime, and it contains more than one image, it wants to display them all at the same time.  How do I get the button to display only the first image?

adjust the numglyphs property to the count of images of your bitmap

Perhaps with this code?

These lines of code load a four-image bitmap into the Glyph property of a speed button, and specify the appropriate value for the NumGlyphs property:

SpeedButton1.Glyph.LoadFromFile('MYBITMAP.BMP');

SpeedButton1.NumGlyphs := 4;

Thanks for the replies.

I have tried using the NumGlyphs property, but I still find that the speedbutton tries to load all the images at once.  This is my code:

GlyphBtn[UpTo].NumGlyphs := 1;
GlyphBtn[UpTo].Glyph.LoadFromFile(DirInfo.Name);

(I am using FindFirst etc to locate the bitmaps). I also tried setting NumGlyphs after loading the image, but I still get the same result.  Any ideas?

to repeat

>adjust the numglyphs property to the count of images of your bitmap

contains your bitmap 4 pictures then set NumGlyphs to 4 -> one image is shown on the speedbutton
contains your bitmap 2 pictures then set NumGlyphs to 2 -> one image is shown on the speedbutton

Thanks Meikl

How do I know how many images there are in the bitmap?

Suppose the glyphs width and height are the same, then you might do something like this:

NumGlyph := round(Bitmap.Width / Bitmap.Height);

Hello Fraction

I never realised it would be so complicated!  You gave me the right idea.  I divided the width by 24 (an average size) and used the integer result as the answer.  It seem to work OK.  I am surprised there is not a property called ImageCount or something.
