Excellent Image List Component In #Delphi XE8 Firemonkey On #Android And #IOS

Delphi XE8 Firemonkey Image List Component Android IOSDeveloper Sarina DuPont from Embarcadero has a blog post up which highlights the new TImageList component available in Delphi XE8 Firemonkey. An image list is a centralized collection of small images for displaying on graphical controls in a TMenuItem or a TListView. One example is you can store just an image index id in your database instead of the entire image and then link your image list to items in a TListView. In the blog post there is a demo which shows how to use LiveBindings combined with a TFDMemTable to do exactly that. This new component is available on for all four platforms supported by Firemonkey which are Android, IOS, Windows, and OSX. One alternative to using an image list is to store your images in BLOB fields within a database or in memory table. The documentation on the Embarcadero docwiki is very extensive for this new component. There are actually two different demos linked from the blog post. One demo was created for the blog post by Sarina and the other demo is part of the Delphi XE8 demo collection. You should be able to utilize TImageList in Appmethod and C++Builder as well.

Head over and check out the full blog post about using a TImageList in Delphi XE8 Firemonkey on Android and IOS.
