     This is in response to a yesterday's submission. No timer. No Set/Release capture (almost). The trick is that windowless controls ARE capturing mouse events upon mousedown BY DESIGN. So every label, image, or custom windowless control has the capture ability build-in. Thank you VB, I just figured out how to use this. Purely as an excercise you can encapsulate this code in a windowless usercontrol. Anyway, this implementation has at least two flaws. Can you find them? :-)) UPDATED: By popular demand now supports right click context menu, OLE drag&drop (good enough), "hand" mouse cursor (with shadow on win2k!), WM_CANCELMODE (pretty decently). More API's used but still under 160 lines of code. 10x for the votes

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
