Dephi selection area

I need to give users the ability to select some area of a picture inside my Delphi application (i.e. draw selection area on the picture)

What is the best way to do it ?

Generally, you record the x,y coordinates in the mousedown and mouseup events.  These constitute two opposite corners of a rectangle.

You can enhance the UI by 'overlaying' the current rectangle over the picture in the mousemove event (if the left mouse button is depressed, of course)
