CSS Developer Components Suite is a collection of Delphi components designed to give you the tools to build professional, modern looking applications with the functionality you want.

If you're tired of rectangular forms this component is for you. How would you like to create forms with any imaginable shape. You can even create forms with transparent "holes" in them!!! All this without writing one line of code!!!! All you need to do is create a bitmap to base the shape and background on and select the color that will be transparent.

How boring are those rectangular buttons that don't even allow you to change the color? This component throws off the shackles and gives you the freedom to create buttons with any shape, size, color, and image you desire! Just like the TBitmapForm this component uses bitmaps to define the shape and background. Each button can have three bitmaps defined, one for normal mode, one for when the button has focus or the mouse is moved over it, and one for when the button is disabled. These images can even be different sizes!!!! You can even use text as a button!!!

Just like buttons check boxes are very limiting. This component is a button that works just like a check box, except the images are based on bitmaps. There are three bitmaps you can define, one for the On position, one for the Off position, and one for when the button is disabled. Like the TBitmapButton these can all be different shapes and sizes and can even have transparent regions.

Have you ever wanted to have an animated button in your application much like a web page? Perhaps flashing or rotating buttons? This component uses the images form a TImageList to create an animated button.

The system tray is an often-overlooked resource that can not only add functionality to your application, but also a degree of professionalism. The TTrayIcon component provides all the functionality you need to create system tray icons, including animated icons and popup menus.
