Hi

I have an own component where I add a property SaveOrder with a default value. If I add the component on design-time the SaveOrder is false instead of true:
  tTest = class(TDbGrid)
    private
      FSaveOrder : boolean;
    published
      property SaveOrder: boolean read FSaveOrder write FSaveOrder default true;
  end;

Open in new window


See my simple sample. What's wrong?
Thanks, Peter

Override constructor Create:

...
public
    { Public declarations }
    constructor Create(AOwner : TComponent); override;
....

constructor tTest.Create(AOwner: TComponent);
begin
  inherited;
  FSaveOrder := True;
end;

Open in new window


... and set FSaveOrder to True. Remove
default
directive.
