TMS Component

Postby Blod » March 24th, 2009, 8:43 pm

Hello,

Can anybody help with the following please?
Some time ago I installed a free TMS components set from a magazine

disk.
One of the components I would like to use is Picture container.
This component is like an imagelist but will hold Windows Metafiles

which is what I need.
There is no help provided with these components and Picture container

only publishes three properties in the Object inspector.
They are an items property which is used to add files to the container, a

tag property and finally the name property.

I can't work out how to use this component to be able to assign a file

from it to a delphi image.
Has anybody used this component?

Thanks in advance?

Are the two formats (the one used in the component and the Delphi image) compatible ?

Accesing an image of the component should be somthing like TMSComponent.items[i]

I had tried something like you suggested
image1.picture:=picturecontainer1.items[0];
and the compiler reports as follows...
[Error] testing.pas(34): Class does not have a default property.

Maybe it keeps only filename of the image.

I found a link with some information but I think this component is for web applications only

Hello,

The PictureContainer is part of a set of "HTML" components from TMS. These components use HTML tags for formatting and linking. They're intended for use in regular Windows applications (not web applications).

See this page for a "Mini HTML" reference:
http://www.tmssoftware.com/site/minihtml.asp

Try this code for getting at the images in the container (Image1 is a TImage component):
Code: Select all
Image1.Picture.Assign(PictureContainer1.Items.Items[0].Picture);


hth,
John

How about this:

Image1.Picture.LoadFromFile( PictureList1.Thumbnails.Items[0].Filename );

where

PictureList1: TPictureList; //(TMS component)
Image1: TImage; //(Delphi Component)

PictureList1 holds the thumbnail data and the filename to the big picture.
