Hi,
Something like:
-----
uses Classes, Extctrls;

type
  TCodeImage = class(TImage)
  private
    FLines: TStrings;
  protected
    procedure SetLines(Value: TStrings);
    function ExecLine(Value: string): boolean;
  public
    constructor Create(AOwner: TComponent); override;
    destructor Destroy; override;
    procedure Run;
  published
    property Lines: TStrings read FLines write SetLines;
  end;

implementation

constructor TCodeImage.Create(AOwner: TComponent);
begin
  inherited Create(AOwner);
  FLines := TStringList.Create;
end;

destructor TCodeImage.Destroy;
begin
  FLines.Free;
  inherited Destroy;
end;

procedure TCodeImage.SetLines(Value: TStrings);
begin
  FLines.Assign(Value);
end;

function TCodeImage.ExecLine(Value: string): boolean;
begin
  result := true;
//  Do exec here
end;

procedure TCodeImage.Run;
var
  i: integer;
begin
  if FLines.Count > 0 then begin
     for i := 0 to FLines.Count - 1 do begin
       if not ExecLine(FLines[i]) then begin
//         Raise exception or ShowMessage
         break;
       end;
     end;
  end;
end;

about executing string as code:
http://www.torry.net/scripts.htm has some components that parse strings and execute them. some of them are freeware with source, so you can see how this can be done.
