Hi cvbmn,

you can't add events to existing components. You should write your own component derived from existing or change source code of the component that was parent component for all components you want to change.

Hi cvbmn,

OK, here is it. Sample shows how to create your own event and handle mouse moving.

type
  TMyEventProc = procedure(Sender: TObject; SomeString: String) of Object;

  TMyControl = class(TCustomControl)
  private
    FMyEvent: TMyEventProc;
  protected
    procedure MouseMove(Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer); override;
  published
    property MyEvent: TMyEventProc read FMyEvent write FMyEvent;
  end;


implementation

procedure TMyControl.MouseMove(Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
begin
  if Assigned(FMyEvent) then
    FMyEvent(Self, 'Mouse position: '+IntToStr(X)+':'+IntToStr(Y));
  Inherited;
end;
