pLEASE COULD ANYONE HELP? I need a program in Delphi that will allow you to use the cursor keys to move a pointer around a window along with the home key and the return key. I would be extremely grateful.
Thanks very much if you try and help me
Tony.

Hi,
Link this with your form code and make Form1 keypreview TRUE.

procedure TWebform.Form1KeyUp(Sender: TObject; var Key: Word;
  Shift: TShiftState);
var
  P : TPoint;
begin
  GetCursorPos(P);
  case Key of
    vk_Left :  Dec(P.X,5);
    vk_Right:  Inc(P.X,5);
    vk_Up   :  Dec(P.Y,5);
    vk_Down :  Inc(P.Y,5);
    vk_Home : ; //do what you want
    vk_Return: ; //do what you want
  end;
  SetCursorPos(P.X,P.Y);
end;

Regards, Igor
