You should use component arrays, when you create a component, you can assign it to a item of the array. Then you can use a counter to remember how many component you created, and use the array to access them.

If the owner is TForm, then you can find by:
Form1.ComponentCount

Example...

var
  i : integer;
begin
  for i := 0 to ComponentCount - 1 do
    if Components[i] is TComp then
      ShowMessage(TComp(Components[i]).Name);
end;

CompArray= array [0...MAX] of TCOMP;

counter:=0;
.

When you need to create:
CompArray[Counter]:=TCOMP.Create(...);
Counter:=Counter+1;
..


When you need to access:
CompArray[i].Method/property .....

var
  TCompo : array [0..5] of TComp;
  i : Integer;
{...}
for i := 0 to 5 do begin
  TCompo[i] := TComp.Create;
  TCompo[i].Width := 50;
  {...}
end;

OnDestroy()
for i := 0 to 5 do
  TCompo[i].Free;

Should I give the points to dwwang or viktornet ?

He provided a clearer source. But I received the same idea from dwwang first.

I don't want to have a bad impression to any of you. So decide who wants the points. And I can also increase or decrese the points.
