At some point in my program I assign one of different available procedures to ButtonAccept.OnClick

I want to use that value in an if clause but when I use the code

 if (ButtonAccept.OnClick = ButtonAcceptClick)  then

then I get a compile error not enough parameter

without delphi to hand...

try @ButtonAcceptClick
or maybe ^ButtonAcceptClick

though I'm not sure.

If that don't work, try

  x : TNotifyEvent;

x = ButtonAcceptClick;

if ( ButtonAccept.OnClick = x ) then ....

OK - I was nearly right first time.

You need to use '@' to say ' the address of the function', otherwise it thinks you're trying to call it (which is what the 'not enough parameters' means)

So, back to your original,

instead of:

if (ButtonAccept.OnClick = ButtonAcceptClick)  then

you need

if (@ButtonAccept.OnClick = @ButtonAcceptClick)  then

great, got a combination that works - your last one was very close, except that @ has to be used with a variable

  x : TNotifyEvent;

    x := ButtonAcceptClick;

if @ButtonAccept.OnClick = @x ....

thank you for your help
