I have a Delphi application and on a form several timage components each containing a picture.
Says I have Image1, Image2, Image3
How can I programmatically change which image is "above" others at run time ?
What is the property governing that ?

Hi
Use BringToFront method. for example if you want to order Image4, Image2, Image1, Image3 use this code
Image3.BringToFront
image3.refresh
Image1.BringToFront
image1.Refresh
Image2.BringToFront
image2.Refresh
Image4.BringToFront
Image4.Refresh
Application.ProcessMessages

The bring to front is ok,
but you need only call update of the container

Image3.BringToFront
Image1.BringToFront
Image2.BringToFront
Image4.BringToFront

PanelX.Update;

individually redrawing each image will be slower than only redrawing at the end
