Where to Find Glyphs and Icons for a Delphi Application, Menu, Toolbar


When using the latest version of Embarcadero’s Rad Studio and you wish to use a BitBtn or Speedbutton on your form you will need to locate where a glyph resides.  A glyph is simply a bitmap image that can be used to within the button’s property to give a pretty neat way to indicate to the user what exactly the button may do.  Some examples are exit / close or save or edit for a few.

Glyphs and icons make your application user interface elements look professional and unique.  Delphi controls and the VCL allow you to easily setup toolbars, menus and other user interface elements with custom graphics.

Glyph and Icon Libraries for Delphi applications

Apparently GlyFx set is no longer part of the installation since Delphi Berlin so what you may have to do is purchase directly from GlyFx the latest images for the buttons or if you have Seattle still installed you can locate them in the “C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\19.0\Images\GlyFx” folder.

The GlyFx folder may only contain a zip file forcing you to unzip with administrator rights since it is the applications folder so please be careful.  You may have to check with your Embarcadero support team to find out the licensing or get in contact with the GlyFx.com web site to find out what is happening.

The GlyFX pack contains a large number of icons selected from many of the GlyFx stock icon sets, as well as wizard images and animations. The icons are supplied at various sizes and formats (but not all sizes and formats are included for all icons).

For further information on how to use the images you can view this youtube video.
