Length of a Delphi record
Posted by Joey on May 29, 2004 at 15:47:32:
Heyaz again =D
what i need to know is... how can i find the length of a custom type i have set up in Delphi?
I am wanting to send information via TWSocket and want to send them the data in a record, TMsg which has a Name, Msg var as strings and a Color var as TColor.
//Code for it
But the function Send in the TWSocket asks for Data as a pointer and Lenght as Integer
so what i did was make a var Msg as TMsg and set the value and used a @ to turn the TMsg into a pointer but.. how do i calculate the length of the TMsg record??
Any help at all would be ace ^__^
Thx in advance. Joey
