I want to create a win97 style speedbutton, and to do this i need to know when the mouse has moves off the given speedbutton.  I can do this for the application as a whole, but not for individual components.  So, to reiterate, i need a handle to an event that occurs when the mouse moves off a speedbutton.

You can use a freeware component by Fabrice Deville
(fdev@tornado.be), it's really good (I think).
It includes src, so you can derive your own if you want to
do some coding.

Thanks for the help, I had this component already, but it is really naff - when you move from one button to the next the colours in the non-client become corrupted, so there are all kinds of palette shennagins going down. On closer inspection of the code in question, it was revealed to me that a CM_Mouseleave message was the just the ticket.  I havent graded very highly because i really needed to know the code - all the components i've evaluated out there claiming to be win97 buttons have been naff in some respect or other, but at least it pointed me in the right direction.  Cheers!
