Other uses

The PoweredBy component lends itself well to adding as a subcomponent to an existing custom component:

Uses uPoweredBy, Propedits, ..other units
 
Type
TMyComponent = Class(TComponent)
private 
  fPoweredBy:TPoweredBy;
  ..other stuff
public
  procedure ShowPoweredByLogo; // Call fPoweredBy.ShowPoweredByForm method in this proc.
  ..other stuff
published
  property PoweredBy:TPoweredBy read fPoweredBy write fPoweredBy;
  ..other stuff
end;
 
procedure Register;
RegisterPropertyEditor(TypeInfo(TPoweredBy),
    TMyComponent, 'PoweredBy', TClassPropertyEditor);
 
Constructor TMyComponent.Create()
// Use tPoweredBy as a subcomponent
// Register a TClassPropertyEditor in order to display it correctly
  fPoweredBy := TPoweredBy.Create(Self);
  fPoweredBy.SetSubComponent(true);  // Tell the IDE to store the modified properties
  fPoweredBy.Name:='PoweredBy';
