ThlSkinButton Package

Version 1.3


Version 1.3 introduces Unicode captions, support for several graphics formats, individual text colors for all button states, text alignment and more. Delphi 2005 is now supported!


ThlSkinButton is a skinnable VCL button component. Beyond providing basic button functionality version 1.3 now includes many new specific features requested by customers. The following list provides an overview of the most important features:

  • support for Unicode captions
  • support for all graphic types that are supported by the TPicture/TImage classes (f.e. png if installed)
  • transparency is implemented with Windows regions. This way the button is also functionally transparent, i.e. mouse clicks in transparent areas are ignored
  • several instances can share the same graphics source, f.e. a TImage component, what keeps the executable file smaller
  • ThlSkinButton can work as a standard button or as a toggle switch with a Checked property
  • the appearance of the (optional) focus rectangle is configurable in position and indentation
  • the (optional) caption is configurable in alignment, position and color for each button state
  • support for VCL actions
  • automatic scaling on systems with different font sizes, if desired
