I am doing some common logging within a large series of funtions and methods and was wondering if there is an easy way to determine the name of the current function/method while executing? Currently I set a const cTag = 'ThisFunction' at the beginning of the function/method and then use cTag in my common logging statements. I was curious if there is a better way to identify the function/method.
Thanks

I believe your method is the only possible way to get the name of the executing function:

function ThisFunction():Datatype;
begin
  HoldThenameOfTheFunction:='ThisFunction';
...
end;

Simply because functions' names are not compiled into the exe program.

The only way to achieve this, is to define a global variable which holds the name of the currently excuted function.

So there is no better way and your approach is definitely the right one...
