TIcon Class

TIcon is an encapsulation of a Windows icon.

TIcon = class(TGraphic);
class TIcon : public TGraphic;

Use TIcon to represent one of the icons in an image list. Assign an icon to objects that have an Icon property, such as TForm or TPicture.  

Icon objects represent the value loaded from a Windows icon file (.ICO file). Draw an icon on a canvas, using the Draw method of the TCanvas object. Icons do not stretch, so do not use StretchDraw (TCanvas) with an icon.

Note: TIcon can be used to display the value of a multi-resolution (>16 color) icon. However, it can not support the creation of multi-resolution icons, nor the resizing of the image after it is loaded from a file or stream.
