OnMoveMove Event

Hi

My problem is quite straight forward. I have got 2 edit boxes. if the mouse is over edit1, then it will make edit2 go RED, else it will make edit2 go WHITE.

I have used the OnMouseMove event of edit1 and make edit2 RED. All OK. then, I have used the OnMouseMove event of the form to set the edit2 to WHITE. All OK

Now, if i place edit1, close to the edge of the form, and move my mouse fast enough out of the form, edit2 remains RED, because the move movement was to fast to go through the OnMouseMove event of the form.

How do i overcome this? any better ideas anyone?

Regards
Keith

Yes, there is a better method. There are events called CM_MOUSEENTER and CM_MOUSELEAVE. They aren't implemented in all controls, but we can make a "remix" of the edit, and use it insted. If I don't come back in 10 minutes, DIY ;-)

Hi keithcsl,

a very easy solution is :

procedure TForm1.Edit1MouseMove(Sender: TObject; Shift: TShiftState; X,
  Y: Integer);
begin
 if (X = 0) or (X=(Sender as TEdit).width) or
      (Y=0) or (Y=(Sender as TEdit).Height) then edit2.Color := clWhite
      else edit2.Color := clRed;
end;

Regards, Zif.

Heh, OK, I'm a bit late, but here it is:

_________________________________________________________________________
unit MUEdit;

interface

uses
  Messages, Classes, Controls, StdCtrls;

type
  TMUEdit = class(TEdit)
  private
    FOnMouseEnter: TNotifyEvent;
    FOnMouseLeave: TNotifyEvent;
    procedure CMMouseEnter(var Message: TMessage); message CM_MOUSEENTER;
    procedure CMMouseLeave(var Message: TMessage); message CM_MOUSELEAVE;
  published
    property OnMouseEnter: TNotifyEvent read FOnMouseEnter write FOnMouseEnter;
    property OnMouseLeave: TNotifyEvent read FOnMouseLeave write FOnMouseLeave;
  end;

procedure Register;

implementation

procedure TMUEdit.CMMouseEnter(var Message: TMessage);
begin
  inherited;
  if Assigned(FOnMouseEnter) then FOnMouseEnter(Self);
end;

procedure TMUEdit.CMMouseLeave(var Message: TMessage);
begin
  inherited;
  if Assigned(FOnMouseLeave) then FOnMouseLeave(Self);
end;

procedure Register;
begin
  RegisterComponents('Samples', [TMUEdit]);
end;

end.
_________________________________________________________________________

Install this component, and you have got the TMUEdit on the Samples panel. If you put it on your form, you have the OnMouseEnter and OnMouseLeave events which you can use with absolutely no farther work required. These events will be fired no meter which way the cursor enters or leavs the edit rectangle. Why the guys from Borland weren't so kind and did it themselvs??? :)
