How do i do to write a own Event handler.
For example i have the folowing code.

TMyProc = Procedure ( Sender : TObject; Flag : byte );
TForm1 = Class ( TForm)  
  Private
  FmyProc : TMyProc;
  Public
  Property MyEvent : TMyProc read FMyProc write FMyProc;
end;

What i want to do is that when i write to the MyEvent i want the above Procedure MyProc to be executed. How do i do that.

Send answer to : martinar@algonet.se

First, append 'of object' to the type declaration.

TMyProc = Procedure ( Sender : TObject; Flag : byte ) of object;



TForm1 = Class ( TForm)
Private
  FmyProc : TMyProc;
Public
  Property MyEvent : TMyProc read FMyProc write FMyProc;
end;


Call the assigned event like this:

  if Assigned(FMyProc) then FMyProc(Self, SomeValue)
