If you are using TButton components then you can't assign a icon (glyph) to it. You will need to use a TbitBtn or TSpeedButton component. Each has a Glyph Property, which you can assign a image to at design time, or at runtime

MyButton.Glyph.LoadFromFile('MyImage.bmp');

There are some free common button glyphs here.

www.glyfx.com

There are also many other places to get more button glyphs.

such as

try using google to search for button glyphs or button images


Hope this helps!
