You can use the OnEnter event to capture the activation and onExit as focus is lost from the control.  However the OnEnter event does not occur when switching between forms or between another Windows application and the application that includes the windowed control.

I hope this helps

I use this one for coloring active control:

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
     Screen.OnActiveControlChange:=ColorControl;
end;

procedure TForm1.ColorControl(Sender: TObject);
var
  I : Integer;
  Forma: Tform1;
begin
  for I:= 0 to Forma.ControlCount -1 do
   begin
    if (Forma.Controls[I] is TWinControl) then
    begin
      if (Forma.Controls[I] as TWinControl).Focused then
      TEdit(Forma.Components[I])as TWinControl).color:=clWindow
      else
      TEdit(Forma.Components[I]).color:=clBtnFace;
    end;
   end;
end;

Any control wich is focused is colored in clWindow...
