assigning an exception handler in a library

I have written an exception handler that needs to be used by multiple programs, so I put it in a bpl.  However, when I try to assign the exception handler in the program like this:
Application.OnException := MyLibrary.ExceptHandler;

Open in new window

I get "Incompatible types: 'method pointer and regular procedure'". I understand that method pointers and regular procedures are different, but I don't know how to declare the exception handler in the library so it's a method pointer. I tried putting it in a class in the library, but this didn't make a difference.
Thanks in advance for your help.

try define separate class:
type
  TAppExceptionEventHandler = class
    procedure OnAppException(Sender: TObject; E: Exception);
  end;

var
  AppExceptionEventHandler: TAppExceptionEventHandler;
.... //implementation

procedure TAppExceptionEventHandler.OnAppException(Sender: TObject; E: Exception);
begin
//do stuff here
end;

Open in new window


... and use it like:
Application.OnException := AppExceptionEventHandler.OnAppException;

Open in new window

Thanks. That did it. (I tried creating the c lass previously, but forgot to create the var part so I could access it. Your example helped.)
