Project with a LOT of images "TImages" on Form. Need better way!
Posted on 2005-04-19
Our current project has become a BIG problem.
The project is used for displaying Advertisers information.
The Information is Displayed via TImages of the Form.
The Form (Only a single Form) Will have nearly 1,000 Images displayed.
Each Image will be linked to it's corrosponding page on the Advertisers web Page.
Sets of Images are held (Displayed) from TPageControl.TabSheets.
The project right now have over 250+ TImages on it.
Memory Usuage when the .exe is run is hitting: 22,973kb Mem Usuage.
Is there a safer way of developing a Image project like this?
That will not be so HIGH of a Memory Hog?
We have thought about having Text information besides the TImages.
But that will not work for the type of project that it is.
As it is an Advertising program, so it will need to display the images
For the Viewers to see.
While writing this now, thinking that maybe some sort of an HTML page.
And just have the pages installed onto the End-Users computer into the
Program Directory. And Encrypt the HTML Files if they prefer to go this route.
Any idea's or better solution please advice.
