Hi!

I've derived a component from aa tpaintbox which draws a shadow under each of it's childs... It runs well, but I would like to repaint some parts of the shadows when one child-windows changes it's position, size or dissapeares at all.

How can I get a notification when a child-window changes it's bounds?

It's not possible to use the methods provided by the child-windows. I need them for other purposes. I read the windows api, but didn't find a message which does what I want.

any ideas?

Nils,

To get a notification when a child is destroyed, override the Notification method of your paint control - it will be called wheneven a component is added/removed from the form.

To detect when a child is resized, you need to subclass its window, and capture the WM_WINPOSCHANGED message. Email me if you need source code which will help you to perform the subclassing at ygolan@hyperact.com.
