They were not showing cause you didn't describe your DBImages.res file corectly, it fixed it for you and emailed it to you.

Also, because each button (generated at runtime) is assigned nil initially, you wont see anything on the Buttons until you get the Glyphs from the Resource file working properly.


Also, you needed to add the rest of your buttons to the runtime code.....

var I: Integer;
begin
with DBNavigator1 do
for I := 0 to ControlCount -1 do
 if Controls[I] is TNavButton then
  with TNavButton(Controls[I]) do
  begin
   Glyph := nil;
   Font.Style := [fsBold];
   Layout:= blGlyphTop;
   case TNavigateBtn(I) of

    nbInsert :begin
               Caption := 'Add';
               Glyph.LoadFromResourceName(HInstance, 'ADD');
              end;
    nbDelete : begin
                Caption := 'Delete';
                Glyph.LoadFromResourceName(HInstance, 'DELETE');
               end;

     nbPost   :begin
                Caption := 'Post';
                Glyph.LoadFromResourceName(HInstance, 'POST');
               end;
     nbCancel :begin
                Caption := 'Cancel';
                Glyph.LoadFromResourceName(HInstance, 'CANCEL');
               end;
     nbFirst :begin
               Caption := 'First';
               Glyph.LoadFromResourceName(HInstance, 'FIRST');
              end;
     nbLast :begin
               Caption := 'Last';
               Glyph.LoadFromResourceName(HInstance, 'LAST');
              end;
     nbNext :begin
               Caption := 'Next';
               Glyph.LoadFromResourceName(HInstance, 'NEXT');
              end;
     nbRefresh :begin
                       Caption := 'Next';
                       Glyph.LoadFromResourceName(HInstance, 'REFRESH');
              end;
     end;
  end;
end;

Have you declared the resource file name ?

implementation
{$R Frame1.RES}

Ivanov_GCommented:

    create empty TXT file and save it as Frame1.rc
    write inside

    ADD             RT_BITMAP              Add.bmp
    DELETE        RT_BITMAP              Delete.bmp
    .....
    and so on..

    You Borland Command line resource compiles brcc32 found in Delphi/Bin folder

    type
           brcc32 -v Frame1.rc

    and you will have Frame1.res file in the directory.

Ivanov_GCommented:

   Sorry, my mistake.... If your form is called Frame1 then name the RC file something else, for example DBNavButtons.rc and do the steps described above.

   Then after {$R Frame1.res} add {$R DBNavButtons.res}
