Most components have a OnClick event, however, this particular event only occurs when the user presses the primary mouse button (typically the left button).  I would like to know not when the left button is pressed, but rather the right mouse button.  How can I detect a right mouse button OnClick event?

Well, one way is using OnMouseDown or OnMouseUp events.

For example:

procedure TForm1.Button1MouseDown(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
begin
  if Button=mbRight then Button1.Caption:='Right button!';
end;

You could also use WM_RBUTTONUP or WM_RBUTTONDOWN messages,
but this might be less elegant, depending on what exactly
you want to do...
