Connecting the new Windows 10 Calendar Controls to data using the LiveBindings Designer Pawel recently did a great post on making the Windows 10 calendar controls database aware.

FireMonkey image lists are collections of multi-resolution bitmaps. Image lists are used to efficiently manage large collections of icons or bitmaps. Our demo shows you how to use TListView together with TImageList. TListView items with images can use bitmaps directly, bitmaps referenced from elsewhere or bitmaps specified as indices in an ImageList. Depending on the kind of appearance used, there are different ways to select an ImageIndex.
