Want to make a custom component that is like a TCommondialog
« on: March 31, 2017, 09:19:08 am »
I have a Form that I would like to add to a package as a component, but which isn't inserted on the target Form as a Form, but a button that's not visible at runtime (like TOpenDialog).

My Form would then pop-up (it's a visual time picker) when called through code.

All examples I could find about custom components use things like TEdit or TComboBox...
Any pointers in the right direction welcome..

EDIT: Looks like I have to separate the Form from the component.   %)

You can take a look at TCalendarDialog as an example.

Thanks for the tip, Bart!

@howardpc, I have a functioning form with time picker on it, I was wondering how to "transform" it so that it can be used like a dialog (in tab Dialogs). But many thanks anyway :D
