Preview files in your application

The TJamShellFilePreview Delphi component integrates the preview pane (first introduced with Windows Vista) into your application. Users can see files without having to open them.

The TJamShellFilePreview Delphi component shows the content of files without opening them

You can set the contents of the preview control via the Path property; synchronize it to other ShellBrowserComponents with the ShellLink property.

Just like the Windows Explorer, the ShellFilePreview component makes use of the PreviewHandler architecture (introduced with Windows Vista) to render files. To modify the PreviewHandlers registered for a file type, simply change them in the LoadPreview event.

If you want to add an image file preview only, simply use the TJamThumbnailImage Delphi component.
