I need to find or create a visual component which visually displays a rotating gear on an axle (or, a circle would do in a pinch, but I would prefer a gear). The user needs to have control over rotating speed, diameter, color, possibly size and number of teeth (if not too complicated), on/off, direction, and potentially inertia w/friction on shutoff.
I have no clue where to begin here. I have tried to find an existing component and I found an ancient component out there for Delphi 2 which I cannot seem to use (I use C++ Builder 5).
Does anyone know if there is something existing out there that can be adapted to my use?
