Create Shapes runtime, then drag and drop them.

I want to create unlimited number of shapes (TShape) dynamically at runtime, which is not a problem, but then I want to manipulate them (change property values) and invoke events (e.g. OnMouseDown) after they have been created. I don't seem to get a handle on the created object. Can anyone help?

    I got it right by using a TComponentList. Relatively easy.

    if (Sender is TManyShape) then
    pointer := ComponentList1.IndexOf(ManyShape);
    ManyShape:= TManyShape(ComponentList1[pointer]);
