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 TAB is defaulted to 8, and only works when Aligned to the left.

The Canvas Background can be set to transparent, or background colour, a border can be set to raised lowered or none and its width can also be set.

If Transparency is set to true the Border is removed.

To set an Ambersand you have to && it, or you will get an underscore char.
