Dear Nick,

About the CreateDIBSection call, there was a thread a few weeks ago about this. It is usually related to a lack of windows resources (not memory). Windows 2000 seems to have higher limits.

When the TImageScrollBox is resized, especially to a large size, the image needs to be redrawn, to fill the new client area. This does though case some flicher when the image is resized.

Best regards,
