Delphi 7.
Create a new Application and place a Button on a Form.
Double-click on the Button to enter the following code on the OnClick event:

// start
if Button1.FieldAddress('Caption') <> nil then
    ShowMessage('You solved this problem!');
// end

Compile, run, and click on the Button. The message does not show.

Why is the returned pointer always nil?!
