Hi mpzlarge40,

what are you trying to do? is this for data entry
the SelStart property of the box will give the cursor's position inside an Edit box and you can even set it

Or set SelStart to the wanted position and SelLength to 0. That will put the caret to the SelStart position without selecting anything:

Edit.SelStart:=YourPos;
Edit.SelLength:=0;

Maybe you meant to change the MousePosition?

Mouse.CursorPos := Point(Left + pnlPlayArrow.Left + 32, Top + pnlPlayArrow.Top + 32);

This will move the MousePosition to the component named 'pnlPlayArrow'.

Or if you want to have your text cursor moved to that particular edit, try "focusing" it.

Edit1.SetFocus;
DBEdit1.SetFocus;

Or if its the first component you want to have focused when starting a project try setting the ActiveControl property of your form to your Edit box.

Is this what you wanted?

Anyway, I think you have the 3 possible answers ;).
