Summary0001716: JvInspector: transform external painter components into internal painter classes.
DescriptionCurrently you have to manually place a painter component on the form and link it to the inspector. Since this is commonly forgotten, resulting in an empty inspector, it would be better to make it internal style objects, where the user can select such a style. The style could then default to one of the predefined painter styles and other style can still easily be added later.
TagsNo tags attached.

Keep the components though, because you wouldn't be able to set the events of an internal painter.
Have a look at the JvMenus code to see how we did it.

But I want to move those events to the inspector control anyway (all painters have the same events, so they can be moved into the control). I think that using additional components to change the way the main component is rendered or acts is a pain in the behind for many users, and I see no reason to keep the components if (AFAIK) no-one actually uses any custom painter.

Style property has been introduced, leaving the possibility to use external painters like what is done in JvMenus
