Hi, i have a big problem.
Sometimes i get AV and Abstract Error !
i don't know why, where and how !

the debug show in unit form :

function StdWndProc(Window: HWND; Message, WParam: Longint;
  LParam: Longint): Longint; stdcall; assembler;
asm
        XOR     EAX,EAX
        PUSH    EAX
        PUSH    LParam
        PUSH    WParam
        PUSH    Message
        MOV     EDX,ESP
        MOV     EAX,[ECX].Longint[4]
        CALL    [ECX].Pointer
        ADD     ESP,12            <<--- Here i get the error
        POP     EAX
end;

How can i find out where i made a mistake ?

Thanxs in advance !
Andi

Are you sure that ESP exist
I think you are referring to SP and not to ESP.
SP is the Stack Pointer.

perhaps you should do a stack trace and see what procedures are called before this? perhaps some earlier procedures messed up the registers? Just a thought...

Maybe this will help:
You will get this error if your derived class, which implements its ancestor's abstract method, calls "inherited" as there is no ancestor method to be called - because it is abstract.

One more thing:
What really bugs me is that Delphi's code generator (Ctrl-Shift-C) incorrectly inserts the "inherited" keyword into the method body even though it "knows" the method is an implementation of an abstract method. aaaarrrrrgggghhhhh.

@zebada: This function is (it seems so) the Standard Windows Proc, which is executed for every Windows Message. I know what a abstract error is, but how can i find the code line where this error occures ?

@DragonSlayer
How do this work with the Stack Trace ?

Hi WinTrans,

the real problem is surely not in that Delphi function, because normally this Delphi function works just fine. It must be somewhere else. Unfortunately AV exceptions are often hard to find...   :-(

If you can reproduce the error inside of the IDE, you can look at the callstack (see Delphi menu). If you can only reproduce the error outside of the IDE, you might want to try an advanced exception handling package. E.g. the one from Jedi or mine (free for non-commercial usage):
