From the VCL source code file consts.pas you can see that this error message has the constant: SInvalidPropertyPath.

Looking for this string in the whole VCL, I find only one line where it is used.
In classes.pas procedure PropPathError;

PropPathError will only be called if the class read from the DFM is not derived from the class TPersistent.

Did you try to program your own component ?
Then you'll have to derive it from a class that somewhere has TPersistent as an ancestor.

Hi Explorer,

sorry, then reject my answer.

Have you tried to load the dfm file into the delphi editor to see if it is corrupted ?

Do you still have the problem, if you create a new form and drop your component on it ?
