JPEG SaveToStream Problem

Can anyone please tell me why this doesn't work.  As a test, after I called LoadFromFile I also loaded the image into a TImage component and it appears just fine.  MyJPEG height and width are correct.  It just doesn't load anything to stream.  Aargh!   Thanks.

var
  ms: TMemoryStream;
  MyJPEG: TJPEGImage;
begin
  ms := TMemoryStream.Create;
  try
    MyJPEG := TJPEGImage.Create;
    try
        MyJPEG.LoadFromFile('image1.jpg');
        MyJPEG.SaveToStream(ms);
        ms.Position := 0;
//ms.memory^ shows "(no value)" and if I try to LoadFromStream() into any image the stream is empty.
    finally
       MyJPEG.Free;
       end;
  finally
     ms.Free;
     end;

try changing your ms.Position := 0 to:

ms..Seek(0, soFromBeginning);

Give that a try.

don't blindly trust the debugger. different debugger versions (from different delphi versions) have different small and rare issues with debugging sertain more complex expressions.

instead, use something that you can really rely on. like
ms.savetofile(filename here);

your code works perfectly with this.
uses jpeg;
 
procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var
  ms: TMemoryStream;
  MyJPEG: TJPEGImage;
begin
  ms := TMemoryStream.Create;
  try
    MyJPEG := TJPEGImage.Create;
    try
      MyJPEG.LoadFromFile('d:\test.jpg');
      MyJPEG.SaveToStream(ms);
      ms.Position := 0;
      ms.savetofile('d:\test_mem.jpg');
    finally
      MyJPEG.Free;
    end;
  finally
    ms.Free;
  end;
end;

ms.Seek(0, soFromBeginning).

I double clicked the dot... only one not ms.. but ms.

(I know you know that but I messed up so want to make certain).

Whew. Thanks. Who knew you couldn't trust the debugger.  I guess this means it is the 3rd party component who is trying to use the stream that is having problems with it.  I thought I was blindly missing something.
