You should derive your list class from TList:

>>>>>>



  TConfigData = class
  private
    FName: string;
    FTyp: string;
    FValue: string;
    FDescription: string;
    FSection: string;
  public
    constructor Create;
    function    Copy: TConfigData;
    property    Name: string read FName write FName;
    property    Typ: string read FTyp write FTyp;
    property    Value: string read FValue write FValue;
    property    Description: string read FDescription write FDescription;
    property    Section: string read FSection write FSection;
  end;

  TConfigDataList = class
  private
    FList: TList;
    FMachineName,
    FIPAddress,
    FSourceFile,
    FProductSection: string;
    function  GetCount: integer;
    function  GetData(const strName: string): TConfigData;
    procedure SetData(const strName: string; AData: TConfigData);
    function  GetDataByIndex(const iIndex: integer): TConfigData;
    procedure SetDataByIndex(const iIndex: integer; AData: TConfigData);
  public
    constructor Create;
    destructor  Destroy; override;

    function    Copy: TConfigDataList;

    procedure   Add(AConfigData: TConfigData);
    function    New: TConfigData;

    property    MachineName: string read FMachineName write FMachineName;
    property    IPAddress: string read FIPAddress write FIPAddress;
    property    SourceFile: string read FSourceFile write FSourceFile;
    property    ProductSection: string read FProductSection write FProductSection;
    property    Count: integer read GetCount;
    property    Data[const strName: string]: TConfigData read GetData write SetData;
    property    Items[const iIndex: integer]: TConfigData read GetDataByIndex write SetDataByIndex;
  end;

More infos? Full implementation? Just ask!

There is a freeware (with source) called TMkList (a subclass from tList) which I cannot remember where I downloaded from. It implements the following method
  QSort - for sorting the list;
  forEach(MyProc : TForEachProc) - to do myProc on each item in the list;
  firstThat( MyProc : TCompareProc) - to return the first item that will meet the condition set in myPoc
  LastThat(MyProc : TCompareProc) - to return the first item that will meet the condition set in myPoc

Let me have you email address if you are interested

TStringList.Sorted := true
TStringList.IndexOf(const S: string)

-What's wrong with this?

Matvey:
Sometimes the TStringlist class is a bit oversized, esp. if one wants to store simpley objects that have no "name". In former times (wow, sounds like I am a grandpa), I used to store my objects in TStringList as well, but nowadays I take the pain of deriving new list classes from TList. It simply gives you more performance and comes closer to the OOP paradigma.

freter - on what do you sort in TList and on what do you search?
I think it's a set of pointer, right?

kjteng, bosism@netvision.net.il, if it's not too hard. I'll apriciate it a lot. -Thanks!

Tlist is a List of pointer usualy used from Objects;
this opbject need to have some property that need function (i gess) that has parameter object-items[x] and need to return a value
according to that Value the Tlistsort can serach/sort thet list
all the best

Thanks for your mail.
Yes. I modified and used it for one of my program which is still under testing. So far so good.  The only thing I don't quite like is the "C flavour" of the code but then that is a matter of personal preference.
