coolform is a set of controls for Delphi that let your form have any shape you want. Included is a control that does the same for a button. the only problem is that it uses what is called a glyph to mask the shape of the button. The instruction states that the glyph must contain four bitmap images, and has a property to load a glyph. I can't get a handle on the glyphs! How can I make one that has the four required images? Can I make such an  image file in Photoshop and save the images as a single glyph?

Just put an image besides the other image. That is ... do an image ( i.e 32x32 ) and then repeat this image four times ( the final image size will be 128x32 ).

There should be a property like numglyphs, put it to Four.
