Hi,
is there any Way to catch the Mouse while it is moved over a TMenu Item ? I didn't see a such Event. I want to write a short Text Message to a StatusBar-Item. Something Like

FILE
  NEW

--> Create new File

while the Mouse is over the "NEW" Item

thanx ;)

Hi,
Use the Application.OnHint event instead.
There are examples in the help file, and if you use the project wizard or SDI/MDI project, it will be done for you.

what john means in your case is:

set the menuitems hint property to "file new"
in the formcreate event, set: Application.OnHint := ShowHint;
have a procedure called: TForm1.ShowHint(Sender: TObject) doing the following:
  StatusBar1.Panels[0].Text := Application.Hint;

bye,

Black Death.

Yup Black Death is RAIT :::::::-----------))))))) :-D

I only have a simple suggestion... Becauuse the form and maybe other controls have the proerpty ShowHint I suggest you better use a different name for your ShowHint() procedure... That's all guys ;->

o.k., i'll do it this way:

i answer this q and then i post a q for john with value 20 rating the same  as you rate me
i.e. if you rate me D i'll rate john's answer D, too
if you rate me A i'll rate john's answer A, too etc

this way we will get the same amount of points.
i don't need mine anyway (at this time, that is).

whaddaya think of it?

go for it-

Black Death.
