A general MouseDown Event
Posted on 1998-11-02
In a program I'm working on I fugered out a way to make a personal Drage and Drop from scratch. I know that delphi handles D&D but I need more control. The program needs the pointer to pull around a form. but still offsetted from the pointers current postion by 10 X and Y. once that the mousedown event in the component that the user selects from is used and the pointer is draged around the component the form follows but as soon as the pointer leaves the area of the component the form stops. I could make all MouseDown event of the components point to the same code lines but I need it to cross over to another form. Ex. from Form1 to Form2. is there a way that a single MouseDown Event can handle this with out pointing all the other MouseDown events to the one Event?
willing to give points, so examples will be needed...
