hi,

in the onclick event I execute the code for the left mouse button, but how do I also execute a code for the rightmousebutton.

Something like this.

TForm1.Button1Click(Sender : TObject);
begin
if (leftmousebutton clicked??) then begin
...
end;
if (Rightmousebutton clicked??) then begin
...
end;
end;

Anyone knows the code for this...Thanks

Use onMouseUp/onMouseDown to see if some of buttons releases/presses.
Also you can use onMouseMove and check:
for left:            if ssLeft in Shift then...
for right:          if ssRight in Shift then...
