About that limitation in Delphi that I mentioned, where you can’t do a static initialization from an element of a const array with a const index, I had posted about it on delphipraxis.
Delphi should let me use a const array…

Isn’t it great for old men to sit around and whine about what could have been? :slight_smile:

I’m a bit late to this party, but isn’t this what this is? (sorry for the cryptic names, it’s just a copy and paste)

     ons = 6 ;

rton = record
     name : string ;
     otype : integer ;

aton = array[1..ons] of rton ;

ons : aton = ( (name:'OnCreate'; otype:1),
               (name:'OnRepeat'; otype:1),
               (name:'OnTouchMoving'; otype:2),
               (name:'OnTouchPressed'; otype:2),
               (name:'OnTouchReleased'; otype:3),
               (name:'OnTimer'; otype:1) ) ;

@Delphic oh sure, there was lots of whining…

Hi, namesake.

The line that does not compile from my example is this one:

It can work in theory: the values can be calculated at compile time. But the compiler doesn’t work with anything other than literals or constants.
