Dear Experts,

I have a little programm with just a main-menu and my
own component. My component contains a black canvas
devided in 80 columns and 25 rows with a white cursor
draw on it. When I choose menu-item Fillbuf, the whole
canvas will be filled with characters. I don't know how to  
make a resize procedure!!!

I know I have asked this question before, but then I used
a TImage-canvas. Now I have a component that uses a
TCustomControl. This is what i received when i used a

procedure TScreenf.FormResize(Sender: TObject);
var lf: LOGFONT;
  ScrImage1.Picture.Bitmap.Width:= ClientWidth;
  ScrImage1.Picture.Bitmap.Height:= ClientHeight;
  GetObject(ScrImage1.Canvas.Font.Handle, SizeOf(lf), @lf);
  lf.lfWidth:= ClientWidth div 80;
  lf.lfHeight:= ClientHeight div 25;
  ScrImage1.Canvas.Font.handle:= CreateFontIndirect(lf);
  FontWidthPix:= lf.lfWidth;
  FontHeightPix:= lf.lfHeight;

I hope someone helps me.

I have put the little example on my site:

I hope someone can help me with this problem
I know I have asked this question more than once
But I can't do this on my own.
