Subject: Re: Partial loading of images
In reply to: tjorvi 's message, "Partial loading of images" on 06:26:10 12/18/00 Mon

Dear Tjorvi,

Envision loads images "all at once". Modifying the code to load images in "chunks" would be quite difficult as Envision is based on the TGraphic VCL class, which assumes entire images are loaded with methods like LoadFromStream, LoadFromFile.

The TImageScrollBox does use more memory because it stores two copies of the image; One zoomed and the original. Using a VCL TImage directly should use less memory.

I don't plan any work on mapping software and have not heard from anyone who has done so. It would be a nice add-on though...

Best regards,
