TActionManager Image


How can I use those standard Windows icons, such as for "New", "Open", "Save" with TActionManager? I know that I should put an ImageList. But my question is, where I can find the images (*.ico / *.bmp) ?

Hi Nova2002,

you can extract them from Shell32.dll with any bitmap extractor (like
BITMAP EXTRACTOR 2.0 Beta 5 ( Zexer Research, inc.) http://zexer.mastak.com)
(or you can ask me for bitmaps).

Problem is :If you are looking for WinXP bitmaps they have alpha-channel (thick border around, say, back button) so you won't be able to use them in Delphi properly.
The easy way just to copy them from screen - they already blended-in.

Another way: check GlyFx.com for a free images - they look almost like WinXP, almost... :)
