Which Object is Clicked

I have a program written in Delphi 2005 VCL. I have code that puts multiple DBCharts on a page based on a users select.  I need to know what DBChart a user clicks on to determine if there is additional inforamtion I can displace for the DBChart.  How can I determine which DBChart the user has clicked on?

Inside your form define something like this:

  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    procedure DBChartClick(Sender: TObject);

procedure TForm1.DBChartClick(Sender: TObject);
  if Sender is TDBChart then
      ShowMessage((Sender as TDBChart).Name);


Then after you create the TDBCharts add something like this:

  DBChart1.OnClick := DBChartClick;
  DBChart2.OnClick := DBChartClick;
  DBChart3.OnClick := DBChartClick;

Now when you click a DBChart you will see its name.
