Hello Again,

 Can anybody show me how to create a Zoom for TImage? Drag the cursor and form a dotted box on the area where i want to zoom, when i release the left button, the TImage will zoom.

Can any body show me a source code for this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi everybody,

 First things first, Does mySQL accept jpg files?

I used this to save image in my Media (blob fieldtype)
   ms := TMemoryStream.Create;
   Image1.Picture.Graphic.SaveToStream(ms);
   ms.Position := 0;
   TBlobField(oTable.FieldByName('MEDIA')).LoadFromStream(ms);
-------------------------------------------------------
And used this to load my image in the TIMAGE

Procedure TfDigitalMed.InitializeForm;
var
  ms : TStream;
  gr : TBitmap;
begin
  ms := oTable.CreateBlobStream(oTable.FieldByName('MEDIA'), bmRead);
  gr := TBitmap.Create;
  gr.LoadFromStream(ms);
  Image1.Picture.Bitmap.Assign(gr);
  gr.Free;
  ms.Free;
end;
---------------------------------------------------------------
When any file(.jpg,etc..) except for ".bmp" is loaded using my (InitializeForm;) it will return a "Bitmap image is not valid".

Place an image with bitmap on a form.
And below is code.

> gr := TBitmap.Create;
> gr.LoadFromStream(ms);
If You ceate bitmap You can only load bitmap.


unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, ExtCtrls, math;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Image1: TImage;
    procedure Image1MouseMove(Sender: TObject; Shift: TShiftState; X,
      Y: Integer);
    procedure Image1MouseDown(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
      Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
    procedure Image1MouseUp(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
      Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
  private
    { Private declarations }
    x0,y0: integer;
    xp,yp: integer;
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

procedure TForm1.Image1MouseMove(Sender: TObject; Shift: TShiftState; X,
  Y: Integer);
begin
  if ssLeft in Shift then
    begin
    Image1.Canvas.Pen.Mode := pmNot;
    Image1.Canvas.Brush.Style := bsClear;
    Image1.Canvas.Rectangle(Rect(x0,y0,xp,yp));
    Image1.Canvas.Rectangle(Rect(x0,y0,X,Y));
    xp := X;
    yp := Y;
    end;
end;

procedure TForm1.Image1MouseDown(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
begin
  x0 := X;
  y0:= Y;
  xp := x0;
  yp := y0;
end;

procedure TForm1.Image1MouseUp(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
begin
  StretchBlt(Image1.Canvas.Handle,0,0,Image1.Width,Image1.Height,Image1.Canvas.Handle,
  min(x0,xp)+1,min(y0,yp)+1,abs(xp-x0)-2,abs(yp-y0)-2,SRCCOPY);
  Image1.Invalidate;
end;

end.

By the way, this does not work when JPG is used as image.

You should always use bitmap.
first load to jpegimage and then assign it to bitmap.
To zoom out you must have original bitmap stored somewhere or load it again.
