Dynamic Components...

Hello,

    I need to create serveral TPanel components during run-time.

I've read up on doing this, and can get the components to create and display, using :

private
    ClassRef := TControlClass;

... ...
... ...

procedure TMainForm.setup(Sender: TObject);
var    newPanel : TControl;
begin
    classRef := TPanel;
    newPanel := classRef.Create(self);
    newPanel.Visible := false;
    newPanel.Parent := theGroupBox;
    ... ...
    -- property setups --
    ... ...
    newPanel.visible := true;
end;

... though, in a loop to create more than one, obviously.

Thing is, for example, the "Color" property isn't accessable for the dynamically created objects.

I can set the "top", "left", "width", "height"... etc. properties, but stuff like the bevel and color settings aren't accessable.

How would I manage to be able to set the new component colours, and stuff?
