Yes, with Viktor's solution you can add a reference/pointer to your double values. But the original double variable has to remain valid. That means you can't give in local function variables...
If you don't like that you could use something like this (it's an extract from my delphi help file):

procedure TForm1.FormButton1Click(Sender: TObject);
type
  PMyList = ^AList;
  AList = record
    I: Integer;
    C: Char;
  end;
var
  MyList: TList;
  ARecord: PMyList;
  B: Byte;
  Y: Word;
begin
  MyList := TList.Create;
  New(ARecord);
  ARecord^.I := 100;
  ARecord^.C := 'Z';
  MyList.Add(ARecord); {Integer 100 und das Zeichen Z in die Liste einfügen }
  New(ARecord);
  ARecord^.I := 200;
  ARecord^.C := 'X';
  MyList.Add(ARecord); {Integer 200 und Zeichen X in die Liste einfügen }

  { Einträge in Paintbox ausgeben )
  Y := 10;             {Variable für Funktion TextOut }

  for B := 0 to (MyList.Count - 1) do
  begin
    ARecord := MyList.Items[B];
    Canvas.TextOut(10, Y, IntToStr(ARecord^.I)); {Display I}
    Y := Y + 30;  { Y noch einmal inkrementieren }
    Canvas.TextOut(10, Y, ARecord^.C);  { C ausgeben }
    Y := Y + 30;  {Y inkrementieren}
  end;

  { Aufräumen: Listeneinträge und Liste freigeben }
 for B := 0 to (MyList.Count - 1) do
 begin
    ARecord := MyList.Items[B];

    Dispose(ARecord);
 end;
 MyList.Free;
end;

Regards, Madshi.

Just remember that TList is for saving pointers...

Cheers,

i know .... the Tlist is for saving pointers but since pointers are 3 bytes they can alos save numbers
integer number is just fine ... and about double .... ?

Pointers and integers are 4 byte long, not 3 byte...
Have you looked at my comment???
