I have been using the Message option on Procedure/Function declarations
for a couple of years.  Provided you are using Lazarus classes, it
works just like Windows: the PostMessage() and SendMessage() functions
in the LCLIntf unit provide closely analogous functionality to their
Win32 API namesakes.  [In all the applications I have written to
exploit this, I used the Gtk2 widget set.]

What is it that you cannot get working?
