ImageEn, unit iemview




property ImageTopText[idx: Integer]: WideString;


Use ImageTopText to specify custom text to appear above the thumbnail of index, idx.
The default top text is specified by DefaultTopText but you can override this for a specific thumbnail by setting a value for ImageTopText.

 The font style is set by TopTextFont. But you can customize it for specific thumbnails using the OnGetTextEx event.
 UpperGap will be adjusted to fit the text.
 Other text fields that can be set are: ImageBottomText and ImageInfoText
 If AutoAdjustStyle = True, then setting Style will automatically set ImageTopText

You can optionally specify the following constants:

IEM_Filename Name of the file 'MyImage.jpg'
IEM_FilenameNoExt Name of the file without its extension (or path) 'MyImage'
IEM_FilePath Path of the file 'C:\Data\My Pictures\'

idx := ImageEnMView1.AppendImage( 'D:\Butterfly.jpg' );
ImageEnMView1.ImageTopText[idx]    := 'Top text';
ImageEnMView1.ImageInfoText[idx]   := 'Info text';
ImageEnMView1.ImageBottomText[idx] := 'Bottom text';

// Display the filename and dimensions for each image
for I := 0 to ImageEnMView1.ImageCount - 1 do
  ImageInfoText[I]   := IEM_ImageDimensions;
  ImageBottomText[I] := IEM_Filename;

Compatibility Notes

Prior to v6.0.0, ImageTopText was a class that held properties for Font, Caption, etc. This was simplified in v6.0.0. ImageTopText is now only a widestring that carries the caption for a cell.

So code that was previously:
ImageTopText[idx].Caption := 'Abc';

Is now:
ImageTopText[idx] := 'Abc';

To set the font of the text, use TopTextFont. TextBackgroundStyle and TextBackgroundColor now control the background for all cells, and TextTruncSide allows you to change the truncation. These properties affect all cells, so to customize the styling of a particular cell use the OnGetTextEx event.
