Using A TUpDown Component

I dropped a TUpDown named UpDown1 component onto a form and associated it to a TPanel named Panel1.  I thought that once I associated UpDown1 to Panel1 that when the user clicks on the up or down arrows the value displayed in Panel1.Caption would automatically be updated to the correct value.  I realize that UpDown1.Property contains the current value, but I thought the association would update Panel1.Caption.  The end result is that it doesn't.  What do I need to do to get the Panel1.Caption to show the correct value.  I have inserted no code into any of UpDown1's methods.  When the user clicks on the arrows nothing happens.

Don't associate it with UPDown (there may be a bug in the VCL).  It will work if you don't.  Try this code:

procedure TForm1.UpDown1Click(Sender: TObject; Button: TUDBtnType);
begin
Panel1.caption :=Inttostr(UpDown1.position);

end;

Thanks for the answer.  I original used a TLabel to show the count, but since you cannot associate it with the TUpDown I decided use the TPanel instead.  Guess I should of just left the the things the way they were.
