I have a record in my ap which contains a TImage:

Pix = record
  P: TImage;
  Left,Top: Integer;
end;

var fp: File of Pix;
    CurrentPic: Pix;

I want to store a series of pictures on disk.  The following line causes a GPF:

CurrentPic.Picture := Image1.Picture;  

What am I doing wrong.  I am using D1 and WFW 3.11

Hi jdthedj,

have you created memmory for CurrentPic?
like :

PPix = ^TPix;
TPix = record
  P: TImage;
  Left,Top: Integer;
end;

var fp: File of TPix;
    CurrentPic: PPix;

begin
New(CurrentPic);
CurrentPic.Picture.Assign(Image1);
{OR? CurrentPic^.Picture := Image1.Picture;   }

.

end;

{don't forget to free them when finished!}

Zif.

You need to use

CurrentPic.P := Image1.Picture;

Pix is a record not an image that's why you need to use it's property P as I showed you above which is the image,,,,,

Actually this is the one that you need ,,,,,

CurrentPic.P.Picture := Image1.Picture;
