TCollection persistence in a component

TCollection persistence in a component

Searching for a solution to TCollection persistence in the IDE, I came across this thread: thread102-1655791: TCollection not saving items: TCollection not saving items which offered the right solution. One thing that should be mentioned is that from Delphi 5 (or later?), the VCL includes the TOwnedCollection class. Deriving your TCollection from this
class instead of TCollection will save you from having to worry about this as it declares the FOwner: TPersistent field and corresponding property for you. Thanks for the help from the those who posted to thread102-1655791: TCollection not saving items: TCollection not saving items!

Sailor: Have you ever been to sea?
Programmer: No, but I've been to Delphi.
