I have 2 components, one linked to the other via a property. Deleting the component which was selected by the other ends up with access violations. How can I capture this event and what should I do then?
Thanks,
Gurkan AKTAS

You need to override the notification method which is declared in TComponent as :

procedure Notification(AComponent: TComponent; Operation: TOperation); virtual;

All you need to do is check if AComponent is the same as the object that you are interested in and if the Operation = opRemove. If both these conditions are true then set your object property to nil.

This is what TDBEdit does when it's datasource is deleted

procedure TDBEdit.Notification(AComponent: TComponent;
  Operation: TOperation);
begin
  inherited Notification(AComponent, Operation);
  if (Operation = opRemove) and (FDataLink <> nil) and
    (AComponent = DataSource) then DataSource := nil;
end;

Hope this helps
