Hi pmarkov,

a nice exmaple ;-)

procedure MoveToControl(control: TControl);
var
  currentpos, destpos : TPoint;
  i, n, dx, dy        : Integer;
begin
  GetCursorPos(currentpos);
  destpos := control.ClientOrigin;
  Inc(destpos.x, control.Width div 2);
  Inc(destpos.y, control.Height div 2);
  n := 50; // #steps
  for i := 1 to n do
  begin
    dx := Round(((destpos.x - currentpos.x) / n) * i);
    dy := Round(((destpos.y - currentpos.y) / n) * i);
    SetCursorPos(currentpos.x + dx, currentpos.y + dy);
    Sleep(10);
  end;
  SetCursorPos(destpos.x, destpos.y);
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  MoveToControl(Button2);
end

Best Regards

I suggest you use the Mouse object
the main reason is that it's cross platform
it automatically calls the appropriate function depending on the system

use it smth like Mouse.CursorPos:=Point(25, 25);
