hi

Can I get access to the property of ancestor class taking into account that this property was redefined in the descendant class:

MyClass = class(TLabel)
.....
property Left read ... write ...
end;


I need to write GetLeft and SetLeft procedures to read/write Left property of ancestor class and peform some additional actions.

Probably, it can be resolved using another method, without redefining Left property. The purpose is to peform some actions when Left property is changed.

Vasily.

Hi,
As you already have FLeft field and Left property defined in the TControl, you just need to override
SetLeft procedure:

 private
  procedure SetLeft(Value: Integer);
 public
  constructor Create(AOwner: TComponent); override;
 published
  property Left write SetLeft;
 end;

constructor TMyClass.Create(AOwner: TComponent);
begin
inherited Create(AOwner);
end;

procedure TMyClass.SetLeft(Value: Integer);
begin
 inherited Left := Value;
 // do your stuff here
end;

Regards, Geo
