Is it possible to get name of object like a sender?
I tryed this code but it returns nonsense:
procedure TMainForm.sb11Click(Sender: TObject);
    ctTemp : TSpeedButton;
    sbName : string;
    pTemp  : pointer;
pTemp  := Sender.ClassInfo;
ctTemp := @pTemp;
sbName := ctTemp.Name;
StBInfo.Panels[0].Text := sbName;
Thanks in advance.

Try this:

procedure TMainForm.sb11Click(Sender: TObject);
  if ( Sender is TSpeedButton )
  then StBInfo.Panels[0].Text := ( Sender as TSpeedButton ).Name;
