My application crashes.

I used:
Application.OnMessage := AppMessage;

and found out that the last message is  WM_TIMER.
Now I try to figure out which TTimer sent it.
Any ideas how to get it?

Thank u very much

Application.OnMessage := AppMessage;

AppMessage(var Msg: TMsg; var Handled: Boolean);

so we do not have Sender here...

wParam
[in] Specifies the timer identifier.

keep a list of timer identifiers (like a hash list) which will tell you which timer object is the sender.

without seeing any of your code to see what and how you are using, I cannot tell you exactly what to do. but the above suggestion is the way to go.

My suggestion is use bookist's code in OnTimer Event of the timer.
