Description

This example demonstrates the usage of the generic TObjectList class.

Code

type
  { Declare a new object type. }
  TNewObject = class
  private
    FName: String;

  public
    constructor Create(const AName: String);
    destructor Destroy(); override;
  end;

{ TNewObject }

constructor TNewObject.Create(const AName: String);
begin
  FName := AName;
end;

destructor TNewObject.Destroy;
begin
  { Show a message whenever an object is destroyed. }
  writeln('Object "' + FName + '" was destroyed!');
  inherited;
end;

var
  List: TObjectList<TNewObject>;
  Obj: TNewObject;
begin
  { Create a new List. }
  { The OwnsObjects property is set by default to true -- the list will free the owned objects automatically. }
  List := TObjectList<TNewObject>.Create();

  { Add some items to the List. }
  List.Add(TNewObject.Create('One'));
  List.Add(TNewObject.Create('Two'));

  { Add a new item, but keep the reference. }
  Obj := TNewObject.Create('Three');
  List.Add(Obj);

  {
    Remove an instance of the TNewObject class. The destructor
    is called for the owned objects, because you have set the OwnsObjects
    to true.
  }
  List.Delete(0);
  List.Extract(Obj);

  { Destroy the List completely -- more message boxes will be shown. }
  List.Free;
  readln;
end.
