Hey all,

I just have a basic beginner's question regarding the TUpDown feature.

What I want to achieve is when the user presses UP on UpDown1(OnClick ?)  then something should happen, say Showmessage('Up'); and if they press DOWN, then f.e. ShowMessage('Down').

Tried searching for this, but couldn't find it.

Use the OnClick event. You'll notice that the button that was pressed (up or down) is passed to the procedure:
  procedure TForm1.UpDown1Click(Sender: TObject; Button: TUDBtnType);

You would then say
begin
  if Button = btNext then showmessage('next');
  if Button = btPrev then showmessage('previous');
end;

But that's lame code, this is slightly more elegant::
  if BUtton = btNext then showmessage('next') else showmessage('previous');
end;

you can even go compact ...

use StrUtils;

procedure TForm1.UpDown1Click(Sender: TObject; Button: TUDBtnType);
begin
  ShowMessage(IfThen(Button = btNext, 'next', 'previous'));
end;
