Popup menu icon

Hi,

I use TPopup menu with icons. The icons are 24 bits or 32 bits, so they have drop shadow.

If the menu item is not selected, then the icon is displayed nicely, perfect.

However, if the menu item is selected, the drop shadow becomes a solid color (white).

It is ugly.

Anyone know a good trick to fix this ? To use 24 / 32 bits .ico with TPopup.

Or is there any better replacement for TPopup ?

Thanks.

I tried that, it still does not help.

Try it yourself, use 24/32 bits XP icon that has drop shadow and set the selection bar to black.
