I have an onClick event that several components use.  One of them is causing a problem, but I can't tell how to figure out which one is the problem.

I can't do  ShowMessage(Sender.name) inside the onClick event.

How can I tell the name of the component?

Thanks,

  ShowMessage( (Sender as _component_type_ ).Name );

change  _component_type_  with your specific component

I did the following, since I have several different types of components, but you led me in the right direction:

ShowMessage((Sender as TControl).Name);
