Action lists let you centralize responses to user commands (actions) for objects such as menus and buttons that respond to those commands. See Handling VCL Actions Using an Action List for details on how to use action lists with buttons, toolbars, and menus.

You can custom draw buttons individually or application wide. See Developing the Application User Interface Index.
