When you create your graphic set it's OnClick event to some of you functions that you've created...

type TGraph = class
x,y:integer;
procedures.......
procedure YourCreatedProcedureForOnClick;
OnCreate()...
begin
    yourtype.OnClick := YourCreatedProcedureForOnClick;
Inherited......
end;
procedure YourCreatedProcedureForOnClick;
begin
..your code goes here
end;

The most basic events are defined in the objekt type TControl. All Controls inherit these events. Among these basic events are OnClick. So your component allready has this event defined, it's just not visible.
The declarations of standardevents are PROTECTED, as are the methods that corresponds to them. To make a standardevet accessible you need to redeclare the event property as either PUBLIC or PUBLISHED.

To do this you simply add the following code:

TMyControl = Class(TGraphicControl)



PUBLISHED
  property OnClick; //Makes it visible in the objekt inspector
end;

Let me know if it works.
