Hi Guys,

Does anyone know how to retrieve the name of a calling method? For example:

A -> Z
B -> Z
C -> Z

Different methods can call method Z, and Z likes to know the methodnames of the caller.

This is for a logging component i'm creating.

Without extra information it should only possible for published elements of a class. published means that the name is added to the RTTI.
Have a look at the Jedi Code Library http://delphi-jedi.org/CODELIBJCL it contains a nice debuugging extension which adds the MAP file to the exe which then allows to unwind the stack with names.
