Ian, the multiple reference to chickens here might confuse you. It is
cutsomary that you must sacrifice at least one chicken before you will
get a meaningful answer to a technical question in this group (it is
called b.p.off-topic, after all).
You could either sacrifice that chicken, or you could navigate to
borland.public.delphi.oodesign and ask there. <g>

borland.public.off-topic exists as a runoff for unwanted posts in the
technical groups. Enforcement of rules is deliberately minimal but
Borland reserves the right to cancel posts at any time, for any
reason, without notice.
