Thanks Xavier, that's just what I was looking for. I note that Stephen
Barncard found this by using the Message Watcher. I wonder how else one
would have found it - I mean by simply searching the documentation. In
fact, I am ashamed to say I never use the Message Watcher - I am
unadventurous and ignorant about the IDE (I never use the toolbar in
the Message Box either). Steve Goldberg, in a recent thread [Is there a
tutorial for Property Inspector...] reminds me here that there are some
aspects of RunRev IDE which I've simply given up on. This is really the
height of laziness, as I'm obviously missing fabulous goodies, but I
have not so far persuaded myself to experiment enough to find out. I
wonder if I am alone in this. Anyway as a cure for laziness I would
certainly buy Dan's proposed e-fragments on aspects of the IDE.
Incidentally, why doesn't clicking in a field generate MouseUp - is
there a logical reason for this?
