You didn't say what you wanted to do with the OleVariant. I'll give you an example of what you can do, but it is ONLY valid within the context of the currently running instance of the application. You would not be able to use it from another application or from another instance of the same application. With this in mind, here you go (using a TNotifyEvent as the example):

{Global variable}
var
  MyTest: OleVariant;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  beep;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  ne  : TNotifyEvent;
begin
  ne := self.Button1Click;

  // assign the integer value of the pointer to the method to the OleVariant
  MyTest := Integer(@ne);
end;

procedure TForm1.Button3Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  ne2 : TNotifyEvent;
begin
  // convert the OleVariant back to a pointer and have ne2 point to the method.
  @ne2 := ptr(integer(MyTest));

  // call the method
  ne2(self);
end;


Again, this is dependent upon the current execution of the application. You can't store this in a database or a file and expect to be able to use it again during another execution of the application. Because of that, there are a number of better ways to assign methods/procedures/fuctions to variables. However, I believe I answered your question as asked.

Sorry! But UR code is unusable in my instance!
I try to assign my procedure to DHTMLEdit.DOM.onkeydown (<-- a Olevariant)
and I get a error message: Not implemented!
I don't know why because I can easily assign my procedure DHTMLEdit.Ononkeydown but get very hard in assigning my procedure to DHTMLEdit.DOM.onkeydown. can U help me in solving this problem?

Unfortunately I don't know what component you are using nor what you are trying to accomplish. You will have to post a lot more information about your problem.

OK! I use a TDHTMLEdit. I found TDHTMLEdit contain sub Object DOM, this sub Object contain Onkeydown, a Olevariant. I think I can assign Onkeydown with a TnotifyEvent and try to assign my procedure to it. this is my problem!

I found a few links about this control. You might want to do a google search. Because I've never used this component, this is the best I can give you.

My guess is that the event you want to attach a handler to needs an interface. Look at this message in yahoogroups
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/delphi-dhtmledit/message/1495

This group is specifically about the Tdhtmledit control, so you might be able to get more help there.
