 private
    { Private declarations }
     Procedure WMNCHITTEST(var Msg : TMessage); message WM_NCHITTEST;


Procedure TForm1.WMNCHITTEST(var Msg : TMessage);
 begin
  DefaultHandler(Msg);
     if Msg.Result = HTClient then
    Msg.Result := HTCAPTION;
end;

Ok this code works, thats great i can move my form around.... etc etc, but while this code makes the form mover around, can anyone make the right mouse event work? or make the popup menu work?....... I dont think so...

Just slightly alter the procedure to capture the mouse click...

Procedure TForm1.WMNCHITTEST(var Msg : TMessage);
begin
  if Msg.Result = HTClient then
    Msg.Result := HTCAPTION
  else
            inherited;
end;

That brings up the popup menu (if there is one of course.)

Well, it almost normal that this doesn't execpts right clicks anymore, isn't is.... you change the msg.result .... you should somewhere define when you allow the move of the form and otherwise except the mouseclicks.

Something like :

is canmove then
begin
  if msg.result = HTCLient ....
end;

Hi.

If you put this on the MouseDown event of the form you should be able to move it around with MBLeft and do whatever on MBRight

procedure TForm1.FormMouseDown(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
begin
  If Button = MBRight then begin
    //Do Whatever
    Showmessage('Right click');
  End Else Begin
    ReleaseCapture;
    Form1.Perform(WM_Syscommand,$F012,0);
  End
end;

Good Luck.

Ohh...I See... It's the label...oh my..

Remove the WMNCHit...

And add this to onMouseDown event for the label..

If Button = MBLeft then begin
  ReleaseCapture;
  Form1.Perform(WM_Syscommand,$F012,0);
End;

That should do it...it worked like a charm for me when i tested it...

Menu on right button move on left..=))

Good luck...
