I like “vectorImage” too!

“Picture" has been used for images for a long time,

Where do you think the confusion would come from?

As I said one of the goals of this control would eventually be to replace the image object - so at some point (all being well) you will be able to do:

  set the filename of <insertcontrolname> "foo" to "foo.png"
  set the filename of <insertcontrolname> "foo" to "foo.gif"
  set the filename of <insertcontrolname> "foo" to "foo.jpg"
  set the filename of <insertcontrolname> "foo" to "foo.png"


  set the content of <insertcontrolname> "foo" to tPngData

At this point, describing the control as a 'vectorImage' might also seem confusing.
