I'm trying to make a component with XE and having trouble with both the bitmaps the component uses and the bitmap that represents the component inside the IDE. Do I need to import all the bitmaps into project or just the rc and where do I reference the rc file? If someone can provide a step by step on making a simple component based on, let's say, TImage that has its background bitmap set from resource, I would really appreciate it. So the component has both a res and a dcr file, and I'd like to know how to include both. Thanks in advance.
