How to change the TVirtualImageList editor?

Recommended Posts

Sorry, this is pretty off topic.

Frankly, I don't understand why you feel the need to create a descendant of TVirtualImageList. Yes, the bottom part is high. But you don't gain much by narrowing it down.
One serious reason is that you don't know anything about it. If you just want to learn, that's fine.

I use this approach:
I have a TImageCollection on a DataModule. N - normal, D - disable, H - hot.

I create the corresponding TVirtualImageList-s on the concrete forms. Personally, I have only two types. Namely for:

  1. main form: the number of images depends on the application
  2. other forms: here I have images only for DBNavigator

If I create a new form, I just copy the existing TVirtualImageList-s there. Alternatively, I will edit them.
Personally, I have no problem with displaying a large number of images. But if you have a 14" monitor...
