1.Next thing that i wont to do is to can control the color of a Font (nome of the button) with right mouse click: on first click to make it red and on next to make it black.
 And once the button is red i need to have a option to open a dialog box or a new window with Memo object in which i can write short text. And read it and edit it next time i click on this buton again.

You cannot change the font color of a TButton (Windows owns that property and will not give it up no mater what Delphi says). You can, however, change the color of a TBitBtn.

Use the following code with TBitBtn and you should get the start you need on this.
procedure TForm1.BitBtn1MouseUp(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);

var Btn : TBitBtn;

begin

	if (Button <> mbRight) or (not (Sender is TBitBtn))  then

		exit;
 

	if not (Sender is TBitBtn) then

		exit;

	btn := (Sender As TBitBtn);

	if Btn.Font.Color = clRed then

		Btn.Font.Color := clBlack

	else

		Btn.Font.Color := clRed;
 

end;
 

procedure TForm1.ButtonClick(Sender: TObject);

var Btn : TBitBtn;

begin

	if not (Sender is TBitBtn) then

		exit;

	btn := (Sender As TBitBtn);

	if Btn.Font.Color = clRed then

		begin

		DoOpenMemoDialog(Btn);

		Btn.Font.Color := clBlack;

		end;

end;
 

procedure TForm1.DoOpenMemoDialog(Sender: TObject);

begin

	ShowMessage( TButton(Sender).Caption + ' button was pressed');

end;

Open in new window
