I'd like to using an Indy component in a console application.
As I cannot drag a component into a form, I created the conponent using

procedure Func(Sender: TObject; ......);
begin

end;

var UDPServ: TIdUDPServer;
begin
UDPServ:=TIdUDPServer.Create(nil);
UDPServ.OnUDPRead:=Func;           // is that right?
...
...
UDPServ.Free
end.

Can anyone give me an example how to handle the events in a component created dynamically.

thanks,

ysimon

You're on the right track but you need to ensure that the event handler conforms to the requirements (e.g., parameters). The easiest way to do this is to do a mock-up as a normal windowed application and then cut-and-paste the resulting framework (e.g., the OnUDPRead) event.

It looks not that easy.
I have made the correct parameters in the event procedure.
I got an error message on

UDPServ.OnUDPRead:=Func;           // is that right?

incompatible type: 'method pointer and regular procedure'

How should I define that event procedure?
For a window application (with a Form), this statement is in an object definition located in the .dfm file.

Try:

procedure Func(Sender: TObject; AData: TStream;
      ABinding: TIdSocketHandle) of object;
begin
...
end {Func};

program Project2;

{$APPTYPE CONSOLE}

uses
  SysUtils, Classes, IdUDPServer, IdSocketHandle;

type
  TMyUDPServer = class(TIdUDPServer)
  private
    procedure Func (Sender: TObject; AData: TStream;
                    ABinding: TIdSocketHandle);

  end;

var UDPServ: TMyUDPServer;

procedure TMyUDPServer.Func (Sender: TObject; AData: TStream;
                             ABinding: TIdSocketHandle);
begin
// Event handler code goes here
end;

begin
  UDPServ := TMyUDPServer.Create(nil);
  UDPServ.OnUDPRead := UDPServ.Func;           // is that right?
//...
//...
  UDPServ.Free
end.
