I do not know anything about it, but i would do the RegisterComponents first.
If this does not help i will have a look at the JediVCL to see how it is handled there.

Yes robert_marquardt is right....If you dont register the component first how do the RegisterPropertyInCategory assign the property to the component?

i code like this in the very beginning,

RegisterComponents('XXX', [TXXXLog]);
RegisterPropertyInCategory('LogType', TXXXLog, 'DebugLog');

but not work. so i revese th order to see whether it works or not.
btw, other propoerty such as boolean text works fine.

Try RegisterPropertiesInCategory.
Ferruccio AccalaiSenior developer, analyst and customer assistance Commented:
it seems that you've note declared the type for LogType....try this solution:

interface

uses
  DsgnIntf, Classes;

type
  TLogType = class (TPropertyCategory)
    class function Name: string; override;
    class function Description: string; override;
  end;

procedure Register;

implementation

class function TLogType.Name: string;
begin
  Result:= 'CategoryName';
end;

class function TLogType.Description: string;
begin
  Result := 'CategoryDescription;
end;

procedure Register;
begin
  RegisterComponents('XXX', [TXXXLog]);
  RegisterPropertyInCategory(TLogType, TXXXLog, 'DebugLog');
  RegisterPropertyInCategory(TLogType, TXXXLog, 'Error Log');
  RegisterPropertyInCategory(TLogType, TXXXLog, 'Warn Log');
  RegisterPropertyInCategory(TLogType, TXXXLog, 'Info Log');
  RegisterPropertyInCategory(TLogType, TXXXLog, 'Audit Log');
end;

If this work this post should be accepted as an answer:)))

Ferruccio AccalaiSenior developer, analyst and customer assistance Commented:
RegisterPropertiesInCategory(TLogType, TXXXLog,
                                [ DebugLog', 'Error Log', 'Warn Log', Info Log', 'Audit Log'] );

BTW maybe there's some wrong code in your source files....send me your whole code by email (ferruccio@afsoftware.it) and i'll look into it....
