Adding Timage or a Combobox to a column in VirtualTree (Gem soft)

I am trying to get a 2nd image into another cell/column in VT.

I have the following created and seems to be working, but when I shrink the column,
the image is getting into the other column
so i must be doing something wrong.

Also I would like to have in 1 of the colums a Combobox in a cell.  how do I do that?

thank so much

procedure Tdsmainform.mytreeAfterCellPaint(Sender: TBaseVirtualTree;
  TargetCanvas: TCanvas; Node: PVirtualNode; Column: TColumnIndex;
  CellRect: TRect);
var
 X, Y, i: Integer;
 xx : trect;
   ResName : string;
  Png : Tpngimage;
  Res: TResourceStream;
  data : pertreedata;
  fnumber : string;
 begin
 data:=mytree.GetNodeData(node);
 fnumber:=TTreeDataClass(data.FObject).flag;
 xx:= mytree.Header.Columns[34].GetRect  ;
 X := xx.Left  + TVirtualStringTree(Sender).Margin;
 Y := xx.Top + ((xx.bottom-xx.top) div 2) + 2;
 ResName := 'FLAGS' + fnumber;
 Png := tpngimage.create;
 Res := TResourceStream.Create(hInstance,ResName,RT_RCDATA);
 Png.LoadFromStream(Res);
 TargetCanvas.draw(X, Y, png);
 freeAndNil(res);
 FreeAndNil(png);

The way you draw the images is very inefficient, you are really slowing down a fast grid component. I'll show you how to do a combobox in a short while

Ephraim WangoyaCommented:
For your image, it would be better if you preload them into an TImageList so you dont have to read from the resource all the time.

Before drawing the image set its width and height (Probably width only)
procedure Tdsmainform.mytreeAfterCellPaint(Sender: TBaseVirtualTree;
  TargetCanvas: TCanvas; Node: PVirtualNode; Column: TColumnIndex;
  CellRect: TRect);
var
  X, Y, i: Integer;
  xx : trect;
  ResName : string;
  Png : Tpngimage;
  Res: TResourceStream;
  data : pertreedata;
  fnumber : string;
begin
  data:=mytree.GetNodeData(node);
  try
    fnumber:=TTreeDataClass(data.FObject).flag;
    xx:= mytree.Header.Columns[34].GetRect  ;
    X := xx.Left  + TVirtualStringTree(Sender).Margin;
    Y := xx.Top + ((xx.bottom-xx.top) div 2) + 2;
    ResName := 'FLAGS' + fnumber;
    Png := tpngimage.create;
    Res := TResourceStream.Create(hInstance,ResName,RT_RCDATA);
    try
      Png.LoadFromStream(Res);
      //you need to set the width of the image, this may be unproportional
      Png.Width := xx.Right - X;
      Png.Height := xx.Bottom - Y;
      TargetCanvas.draw(X, Y, png);
    finally
      freeAndNil(res);

the 2 lines

   Png.Width := xx.Right - X;
   Png.Height := xx.Bottom - Y;
 

do not work, I am getting the error, that I cannot assign a value to a read-only component.

would this though make the difference that it will not overlap to a new column when you shrink the column when you click on the header?



I noticed for the combobox issue, that you basicly need to rewite the component?
I thought that it was as easy as just adding a standard component, and hooking itt up to a cell.
but looks like that's not the case

Ephraim WangoyaCommented:

Changing the width and height of the image will solve the problem at hand, Try using bitmap, with that you can change the width and height
I've never used TPNGImage so I did not know the width and height are read only

Adding the combo box is quite complicated and so is any other control. You have to handle a lot of things your self

Thanks.

I wat trying it wit a Timage  but did not work  so far.
I  can load from file then, but not from stream.
When I use Timage.Picture.Graphice.loadfromstream   then it will give me a 00000000  error.

I will try it with a Tbitmap, and see what happens.

Otherwise I have to figure it out how to use it with a Timagelist   (not the default in VT, caise I am using that one already)
Because I have no clue about that one.

Alternatively you can use BtBlt to transfer the data from the png to the tree canvas if the TPNGImage exposes its canvas

  BitBlt(TargetCanvas.Handle, X, Y, xx-X, yy-Y, Png.Canvas.Handle, 0, 0, SRCCOPY);

For TImageList
You just add the images to a TImageList with position corresponding to what you currently have in the resource file, I see you are using some kind of numbering (fnumber), I'm assuming its an integer
procedure Tdsmainform.mytreeAfterCellPaint(Sender: TBaseVirtualTree;
  TargetCanvas: TCanvas; Node: PVirtualNode; Column: TColumnIndex;
  CellRect: TRect);
var
  X, Y, i: Integer;
  xx : trect;
  data : pertreedata;
  fnumber : Integer;
begin
  data:=mytree.GetNodeData(node);
  
  fnumber:= StrToIntDef(TTreeDataClass(data.FObject).flag, 0);
  xx:= mytree.Header.Columns[34].GetRect  ;
  X := xx.Left  + TVirtualStringTree(Sender).Margin;
  Y := xx.Top + ((xx.bottom-xx.top) div 2) + 2;
    
  FBitmap.Clear;  //you can declare FBitmap in the form and create it in OnFormCreate event
                  //remember to free it OnFormDestroy event
  FBitmap.Width := ImageList.Width;
  FBitmap.Height := ImageList.Height;
  ImageList1.Draw(FBitmap.Canvas, X, Y, fnumber, True); //this will draw to bitmap canvas

  BitBlt(TargetCanvas.Handle, X, Y, xx-X, yy-Y, FBitmap.Canvas.Handle, 0, 0, SRCCOPY);

Actually should have been

Or use this instead

ok, it's working now,  but I still have the same problem.

If I have 2 columns

1st = the image
2nd = some text

when I shrink/drag the column to make it smaller,  the image goes into the view of colum 2
instead of being cut off.

(like the original  Imagelist does in VT)

Why don't you use CellRect, would it not be easier

I can't win.

Added that line, and it's giving me out of resources now

 FBitmap.Width :=cellrect.Right -x;


 BitBlt(TargetCanvas.Handle, X, Y, 16, 12, FBitmap.Canvas.Handle, 0, 0, SRCCOPY);

I changed from Bitblt the 16 and 12   since  xx-x and yy-y does not work. (or xx.top etc)

I got it to work  now,  had to make some changes, since it didn't show correctly.
the Cellrect  was tricky, since it always stays 0 .  so the image was flat


but this is the end code, and it's working now :)

FBitmap:=tbitmap.Create;
 FBitmap.Width := ImageList1.Width;
 FBitmap.Height := ImageList1.Height;
 fnumber:= StrToIntDef(TTreeDataClass(data.FObject).flag, 0);
 R := perrytree.Header.Columns[34].GetRect;
 R.Left := R.Left  + TVirtualStringTree(Sender).Margin;
 R.Top := ((ImageList1.Height-CellRect.top) div 2) +2 ;
 ImageList1.Draw(FBitmap.Canvas, 0, 0, fnumber, True);
 R.Right := Min(R.Right, FBitmap.Width + R.Left);
 TargetCanvas.StretchDraw(R, FBitmap);
 freeandnil(FBitmap);
