Description

Returns the address of a published object field.

FieldAddress is used internally by the component streaming system to access a specified published field of an object. FieldAddress returns a pointer to the field, if it exists. If the object has no published field by that name, FieldAddress returns nil (Delphi) or NULL (C++).

Programs should access and manipulate fields by using properties instead of FieldAddress.
