I'm fairly new to delphi 3,
I want to drag the contents of a label to another.
This I can do.
But I want the image of the label to travel with the mouse
as I do so..
The built in help on this isn't clear enough... (dragimage.. imagelist...) what I really need is an example.. Anyone help?

Hi blobb!

Put Panel on Form then Label on Panel :

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  ExtCtrls, StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Panel1: TPanel;
    Label1: TLabel;
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
    procedure Panel1DragOver(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer;
      State: TDragState; var Accept: Boolean);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
panel1.Align:=alClient;
panel1.OnDragOver:=Panel1DragOver;
label1.DragMode:=dmAutomatic;
end;

procedure TForm1.Panel1DragOver(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer;
  State: TDragState; var Accept: Boolean);
begin
Tlabel(Source).left:=x;
Tlabel(Source).top:=y;
accept:=true;
end;

end.

I guess i've got your question , reject it if not :)

Put an ImageList with some bitmap and a panel, and write this:

procedure TForm1.Panel1MouseDown(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
begin
 ImageList1.SetDragImage(0,10,10); {hotspot at (10,10) in image }
 ImageList1.BeginDrag(Handle, panel1.left+x,panel1.top+y);
end;

procedure TForm1.Panel1MouseUp(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
begin
ImageList1.EndDrag;
end;

procedure TForm1.Panel1MouseMove(Sender: TObject; Shift: TShiftState; X,
  Y: Integer);
begin
  if ImageList1.Dragging then
   ImageList1.DragMove(panel1.left+x,panel1.top+y);
end;

Hello guys.... Any of you know how to do the same thing in Delphi 4??? Doesn't matter if you drag a text or an image... What matters is to accomplish dragging... There are some oother parameters different then Source and Sender and so on.... It;s some kinda DragObject or something like that :-|

Regards,
Viktor Ivanov

That's cool, many thanks.. I spent hours puzzling that..
does it only work within a panel? Will it work just on a form?

I guess I've some experimenting to do...

Thanks again
