I want to create a user interface that looks like the Quick Books Pro installation program.  This installation program is similar to several others where the screen consists of images that highlight as you pass the mouse cursor over them and make a fancy clicking noise.  The mouse cursor also changes to a hand or something.  The user points the mouse until the option that they want is highlighted and then they click the left mouse button to access that portion of the program.

this can be done with ordinary button controls, or image controls.
you change the bitmap of your control in the onMouseOver handler. If you want to change it when the mouse exists, you must subclass the control you want to use, and let it handle cm_mouse_out cm_mouse_exit. Because I don't think that regular win32 controls already have tOnNotify handlers for this.

The click handler could play the wav file, this is really all very simple. What do you really want? source-code to do these tasks?

I thought perhaps that there was some packaged example that I would be able to obtain.  I understand what you're saying...it's just that I don't want to reinvent the wheel.

Thanks,

The March 98 issue of Delpi Informant contained an article "Sights & Sounds - multimedia buttons" which I think addresses your problem.

Accompanying the article is a packaged example of a multimedia button demonstrating (I believe) the features you asked for.

The example can be obtained from Delphi Informants web site http://www.informant.com/delphi/dinewupl.htm, filename DI9803CC.ZIP.

Greetings,
