Property Array

I have a rather unique problem. I want to define a published property for a
component that i am developing. This property is a property array. Check
out the following e.g.

property AProperty[ARow,ACol: Integer] : String read GetAProperty write
SetAProperty;

The property is pointing to a variable like -

FAProperty : array[0..100,0..2] of String;

Now the problem is that nowhere does Delphi say that this kind of property
can be defined only in the public section of the class definition. This i
have found out my banging my head for 2 continuous days and stumbling on
it. If u define it say for example in a published section of a class
definition then it will compile and build the library but when u are trying
to drop the component on a form, it will give u a access violation.

Now i need this property very badly in the published section because i want
to store data that is multi-dimentional. How do i do it ?. Can u help me
out ?. I need this very soon. Please do reply.

FOR JIM BOB

Delphi Help strikes again...
You need to write your own property editor for published properties with arrays.  Do you require sample code?
