[Solved] How to create control templates.
« on: November 27, 2021, 08:19:57 am »
Hi All,
To also use a map viewer;
For each map; I want to create template with Name, Source, Transparency and Visibility properties and call it layer.
Then I want to display the properties of these layers on the screen.
I can do these manually. But is there a shortcut for this job that I don't know? I wanted to ask you.
Any answer would be greatly appreciated. Respects.

Appendix 1 Layered map view from Paint.Net.
Appendix 2 The template I created for Layer data in Lazarus.

If Ide=Lazarus 2.0.10 32 Bit and Os=Win 10 Home 64 Bit then Get up and do something useful! Because God is the helper of those who start again;

I looked at your request a little closer and I have some questions.

 1. When you say layer are you referring to actual images over laying each other ?

 2. Are you referring to Hot spots on an image where you can define info as you move your mouse around on a single image?


I am not really sure but to me layers are multiple images on top of each other so I am not sure what your intent is ?

 
I see what you have for the example you posted and you indicate that you would like a transparency control which tells me that it
 is like a fogging effect to another image or alpha blend.

 Is that what you want? a Stack of images where you can alpha blend them ?
The only true wisdom is knowing you know nothing

Thanks a lot for the answer jamie, you're 1000 steps above me.
You wrote the situation that I will try to do in the future. But for now I was trying to make a view where I would only show layers as a start. I'll do the events and image processing later.

By the way, an idea came to my mind and I implemented it. The result is very close to the process I want.
Idea; Creating a sample control and duplicating it at runtime.
Sorry the codes might be clumsy.

I would be very grateful if you could review it and write your opinion when it is convenient. Respects.
