Thanks for contributing this code!

The lpk claims the license is LGPL; usplashabout.pas mentions "Modified GPL licence". Those two seem contradictory to me.

I'd suggest changing all license references to LGPL to clarify that use of the code does not mean your entire application automatically becomes GPL licensed, making it impossible to use this component in any non-GPL licensed program.

@BigChimp: You are quite right- thanks for pointing it out. I have modified usplashabout.pas to indicate an LGPL licence and re-uploaded.

The shaped window doesn't work in Linux due to:

 Canvas.Draw(0, 0, MyBitMap);
 // raises Floating Point Error in Linux (!??)

Not sure whether to report it as a bug? --Torrenter

1. Thanks a lot
2. Sorry, not that much of a GUI guru. Posting this on the wiki is not the best place for these kinds of questions - you'd get more exposure/faster answers on the forum or mailing list.
