i have a class that holds some methods...

Server sends Client a function name and Client uses a statement (case/of) to execute it from a hardcoded indexed TStringList.

how can i avoid this ?

someone told me something like this...:

you could use an enumerated type shared across both projects. on the startup of the server, it would index the functions (as procedure objects) in a list, based on the enumerated type

when calling your server's function, just cast the enumerated type as an ordinal, which would change it to integer so it can be transported over socke

that is how to pass a procedure as a pointer

1) the link i sent you talks about procedure pointers
2) add procedure pointers into a TList or array, in the same order as the list enumerated type elemented
3) you could do it in a TList, or array of pointers
4) yes, or a TList

>>can i see a sample code

This is new code?  Your question stated that you already have a class with public functions/methods.

There are some code snippets in the comments to a similar question
