type
  TStatus   =  (NEW, ACTIVE, NOT_ACTIVE);

  type TDoFirstEvent = procedure (Sender: TObject) of object;

private
FOnChange : TDoFirstEvent;
FTypeStatus : TStatus;
//
published
property OnChange :  TDoFirstEvent read FOnChange write FOnChange;

// Dispatch method
procedure TBase.DoChange;
begin
if (Assigned (FOnChange) and (FTypeStatus = NEW))  then
begin
   sleep(500);
   FOnChange(Self);
end;
end

A Form contains an object of type TBase and in myform.create I do:

OnChange := DoFirst;

// DoFirst is an procedure of TDoFirstEvent type

My goal is to call DoFirst everytime OnChange is set and
FTypeStatus is NEW. It doesn't work, what is wrong in my approach?

Hi,

in the code above, you aren't calling DoFirst and not triggering the OnChange event in any moment. he fact of assigning DoFirst method to OnChange property doesn't call the DoChange method.

If you want to call DoFirst, you should first assign it to OnChange property (as you've done) and in other part of your code you should call DoChange method.

Example:

procedure TBase.SetPropertyString(Value: String);
begin
  if PropertyString <> 'Value' then
  begin
     PropertyString := Value;
     DoChange;
  end
end;
