Move contents from a pointer to another

How do I move all pointers from one TList to another?
I have a Tlist full of objects, and now I want to destroy that Tlist, after I saved the information in another (eg TList2). How do I do that?

The following code also frees Tlist2, which isn’t desirable…

TList2 := Tlist1
Tlist1.Free

hi volavy,

seemed so, that there is no other way than
for i := 0 to list1.count - 1 do list2.add(list1[i]);

Well, I didn't try, but can't you use this:

  list2:=TList.Create;
  list2.Assign(list1);

?
