Array's & Components

Hi i have a little problem,

I am writing an component, and i need a property with an array of a record.

e.g.

Type ItemRecord = Record
                   Name : String;
                   Enabled : Boolean;
                   Selected : Boolean;
                  End;

How can i make this array in the component ?

pleeeeeaaaaaaze help !

Thx, Arijan

You can create an array property as the appende code. Please note that I have declared the array properties as public rather than published because I have not written a property editor for the particular property. As stated in the online help: "Array properties must have their own property editors. The Object Inspector has no built-in support for editing array properties".

type
  data= record
          Name : String;
          Enabled : Boolean;
          Selected : Boolean;
        end;
  test = class(TComponent)
  private
    { Private declarations }
    FRecList: array[1..100] of data;
  protected
    { Protected declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
    function getRecList(Index: Integer): data;
    procedure setRecList(Index: Integer; const value: data);
    property reclist[Index: Integer]: data read GetReclist write SetRecList;
  published
    { Published declarations }
  end;

procedure Register;

implementation

procedure Register;
begin
  RegisterComponents('Samples', [test]);
end;

function  test.getRecList(Index: Integer): data;
begin
    if Index>high(FRecList) then
    begin
      result.name:='';
      result.enabled:= false;
      result.selected:= false
    end
    else begin
      result:= FRecList[Index]
    end;
end;

procedure test.setRecList(Index: Integer; const value: data);
begin
  if Index>high(FRecList) then exit;
  FRecList[index] := value;
end;
