Hello,

I have a question on BCB3 regarding a hoverbutton. I have a form which has 9 Buttons on it. This button allows me to have a Mouse Enter and Exit. What I'm trying to do is change the color of text or the background of the button itshelf. Can someone please explain to me how this can be done. I've worked on this for two weeks without any luck at all.

THanks

Not an easy task.  Get this file and look under standard controls.  It explains about what you are trying to do.

The button will work with this code below. If you set the Flat Property to false only the text will change. But if you set it to true both the background and text will change.

void __fastcall TForm1::ToolbarButton971MouseExit(TObject *Sender)
{
ToolbarButton971->Font->Color = clBlack;
ToolbarButton971->Color = clBtnFace;
}
//--------------------------------------

void __fastcall TForm1::ToolbarButton971MouseMove(TObject *Sender,
      TShiftState Shift, int X, int Y)
{
ToolbarButton971->Font->Color = clBlue;
ToolbarButton971->Color = clWhite;
}

Yes It will act like a mouse enter and exit. I tryed using  enter and exit though and it did'nt work.The other buttons would'nt recieve focus unless you clicked them. So I decided to try a third party button and..figured it out from there. Thanks for the points you are the first question I answered.
