I have to zip files, which I have found that while surfing the net.

What i want is to display a thumbnail in a VirtualList Mode using the code from other2 zip file.


I would like to increase points to double if it really get what i want.
thanks

Hi systan,
What are you up?

How about using third party components?

hi jimyX;

Yes as always, playing the code banks? no, actually I'm not playing, and it's not a project, or a personal.
It's only a like, that I like to do,  to do this without any cost or interest.
I just like to see the code ran in my own description.

Can you mix the code of other2 TO other1?

Which other1 has the ability of VirtualView and other2 has the ability to ThumbnailView?

So, I'd like other1<has thumbnail> mixed with other2<has virtualview>



thanks for your quick reply

There are plenty of components that can provide you with enhanced features than the standard ListView or ShellListView. The ListView does not have this feature. This does not mean it can not be done though but there are great components that you can use.

You can try this component:

After installing use "VirtualExplorerEasyListview" it does exactly what you are looking for.

I'm sorry jimyX, but I can't or not interested on that component, I don't know why you can't mix other2 to other1;

Ok, I'll wait, if it takes time to the solution.



thanks

>>I would like to increase points to double if it really get what i want.
points are of no value
> so if you double "no value" you still have double nothing

what is the point then in offering to double the points ?

why not use the JvThumbview from the Jedi-VCL ?

Ok;
The points are no value on this days.
You put minimum, you put maximum, it's the same, as long as the experts can answer whatever it can.

I'm asking the Listview to be virtualized and I've given 2 running fine code to visualized its differences.

I'm using delphi7 and I'm not using any Jedi.

I don't think experts here can't solved that issue I've asked.


thanks for the reply Geert;

hi jimyX, for the record, I test the component you recommended, it's far and slow.
It's better to use the code of Slick<an early delphi expert>, but problem can't be thumbview

I am still trying that systan but seems there is an error of compatibility between the two methods of viewing the icons to get along. Really do not have time but will try my best.

I have attached the project after merging the two methods.

Yes, I've seen it.
You merge other1<with thumbnail> TO other2<with virtualview>

Error's I see;
List Index out of bounds


I'm glad you've tried it, now lets see where your code is flowing.

Oh,
And I'm not interested in a Liststyle view or report view, or Icon view, I only want the thumbnail view, and I think its better to merge other2<with virtualview> TO other1<with thumbnail>
