is it possible to get a list of inherited properties, methods, etc. programmatically (possibly using typinfo unit)for any given class, eg TButton, to display in a listbox? I haven't been able to figure out how to use the typinfo unit in delphi 4. Is this also possible or preferable to use the editintf unit in the toolsapi? If so how?

To list all published properties and methods of an Object.
From Chami's Tips:

uses TypInfo;

procedure ObjectInspector(Obj: TObject;  Items : TStrings );
var  n : integer;
      PropList: TPropList;
begin
    n := 0;                              {you can put tkAny instead}
    GetPropList(Obj.ClassInfo,  tkProperties + [ tkMethod ], @PropList );
    while( (Nil <> PropList[ n ]) and (n < High(PropList)) ) do
    begin
        Items.Add(PropList[ n ].Name + ': ' +PropList[ n ].PropType^.Name );
        Inc( n );
    end;
end;
