Another title-bar button? Yes, but one that works simply and cleanly to provide buttons which mimic the look and feel of Windows’ own frame controls by using Windows’ own drawing technique.
Each Widget contains a single glyph from a truetype font. Windows uses the “Marlett” font for its own glyphs but you can use any and choose a colour and weight too. Widgets have their own Hint property and are even visible at design-time. A component editor is included to make Widgets very easy to use. Caveat! It is some years since these components were developed and they probably won’t function beyond D5 without a lot of tweaking. They are–regrettably–also unsupported. Nevertheless I hope you find them useful in some way.
