how to initialize array(again)

Hello.  I want a question again.

    I want to know how to initialize array.

    (ex)
    type
    TForm1 = class(TForm)
    ..
    private
    ..
    public
    ..
    end;

    var
      arrayA: array[0..2] of Integer := (0,1,2);

    It's Ok.But when array is class member, compile error occurs.

    type
    TForm1 = class(TForm)
    ..
    private
    m_arrayA: array[0..2] of Integer := (0,1,2);
    ..
    public
    ..
    end;

    So I have to program as follows.

    type
    TForm1 = class(TForm)
    ..
    private
    m_arrayA: array[0..2] of Integer;
    ..
    public
    ..
    end;
    ..
    procedure TForm1.FormCreate;
    begin
    m_arrayA[0] := 0;
    m_arrayA[1] := 1;
    m_arrayA[2] := 2;
    end;

    This code is very ugly.
    I want to initialize array like C or Java.

    Please teach me a good method.

Initialize the array with a constant array:

1. constant array:
const arrayA_const: array[0..2] of Integer = (0,1,2);

2. Member array:
    private
     m_arrayA: array[low(arrayA_const)..high(arrayA_const)] of Integer;

3. Initialize in OnCreate:
move(arrayA_const,m_arrayA,sizeof(m_arrayA));

This is not *very* nice, but in my opinion the only way.

Thanks bome.

This case is integer so this way is Ok.
But if I want to use Component array like array[0..2] of TEdit instead of integer,
What can I do?

Please teach me

hehe, in my knowledge this is not possible.
Actually, I do the "ugly" way very often, for the components. That is one of the rare things that is actually better in VB.

for large amount of things like copy/paste I use Ultra Edit with a Macro.
