Hi,

Is it possible to add events to existing controls. Specifically I would like to inherit the drag and drop events from TControl and apply them to a TSpeedButton without creating a new SpeedButton component.

Well, the only way you can do that exactly, is to modify the VCL source and copy the drag/drop support from the TControl code into the TSpeedButton code...

Otherwise the answer is no.

Cheers,

Raymond.

Thanks for the reply.

I had thought about that and I had a feeling this was the case, hence my comment about not creating a new component. Ah well.
