I am trying to write a property editor for a list of Items
these items are of type TMyObject (custom class)

At design time I click the elipses and edit the property
but the items I added at design time are cleared at
run time.

how do I place them on the stream...?

Is is possible to get example code ?

Thanx in advance

> how do I place them on the stream...?

You must write a wrapper list object around your object that decends from TPersistent.  TPersistent is the object that allows saving to a stream.  Then override the DefineProperties method to  define what you want to save to the stream.

  TLList = class(TPersistent)
  protected
    FList     :TList;
    procedure WriteData( Writer:TWriter );
    procedure ReadData( Reader:TReader );
    procedure DefineProperties( Filer:TFiler ); override;
  public
    constructor Create;
    destructor  Destroy; override;
    property    List:TList read FList write FList;
  end;

procedure TLList.DefineProperties( Filer:TFiler );
begin
  inherited DefineProperties( Filer );
  Filer.DefineProperty('LST', ReadData, WriteData, true );
end;
