Streaming Published Properties

I'm experimenting with saving and loading components using Delphi's streaming mechanism. I've declared a new class with the following declaration :

TOmxSourceID   = type integer;
TOmxClassID    = type integer;

TOmxSourceClass = class(TPersistent)
private
  FClass: TOmxClassID;
  FSource: TOmxSourceID;
published
  property Source : TOmxSourceID read FSource write FSource;
  property SourceClass : TOmxClassID read FClass write FClass;
end;

I have then declared a new panel component with TomxSourceClass as a published property

TOmxDataEntryPanel = class(TPanel)
private
  FSourceClass: TOmxSourceClass;
public
  constructor Create(AOwner : TComponent); override;
published
  property SourceClass : TOmxSourceClass read FSourceClass;
end;

constructor TOmxDataEntryPanel.Create(AOwner: TComponent);
begin
  inherited;
  FSourceClass := TOmxSourceClass.Create;
  FSourceClass.Source := -1;
  FSourceClass.SourceClass  := -1;
end;

The SourceClass.Source and SourceClass.SourceClass properties can be set OK but when the form is saved to a database and reloaded the properties have defaulted back to -1. I don't think the problem is with the save/load routines as all the other properties are saved ok.

Could it be the declarations of TomxSourceID and TomxClassID?

Thanks

Jo

I've managed to answer it myself. The problem was due to SourceClass being declared as a readonly property of TomxPanel. It should read

TOmxDataEntryPanel = class(TPanel)
private
 FSourceClass: TOmxSourceClass;
public
 constructor Create(AOwner : TComponent); override;
published
 property SourceClass : TOmxSourceClass read FSourceClass write FSourceClass;
end;
