This is a Text Canvas Class constructed from TGraphicControl and uses TStringList to hold the text.

The object of this Class is to place a text canvas on the form or in a container with ease, it uses the text editor to fill the StringList, the text can then be set within the canvas rectangle or you can set the Auto_Size and the canvas rectangle will adjust to the longest string length and the Height of the total string count + 1.

The text can be aligned left, center or right and if the text is not set to auto size then it can be word wrapped.

The Canvas Background can be set to transparent, or background colour.

The Tab () works fine, but it operates when Align is left.

The Ampersand Char ’&’ is reserved for things like underlining a Menu letter for keystroke action and you have to double it && or you get an underscore.
