We have "rotational power shedding" but it’s a little different. Its called
"storms" here.
If not for UPSs on everything and a backup generator I'd be spending more
quality time away from the computer.
I recall WhileMouseDown but don't seem to have a copy although I used the
same basic principal in a few controls.
Wasn't it called WhileDownVCR or something like that?  I believe it used
PeekMessage() instead of GetAsyncKeyState() and navigated the rowset?
If anyone has a copy, send me a copy please....

I hadn't remembered WhileMouseDown.  I looked it up and started to build
it into Tom's form.  And then the lights went out. :-(

It's a long story but South Africa is lumbered with "rotational power
shedding" for at least the next 12 months.  In theory, there's a
schedule.  In practice the lights simply go out at odd times for up to 6
hours at a stretch.

In the meantime Rich got bored. :-)  He has done the heavy lifting by
creating a custom control.  It doesn't use the same API call as
WhileMouseDown but at least it gets rid of the timer objects I'd
resorted to.

Between Rich and WhileMouseDown I've added two new strings to my
programming bow. :-)
