Delphi: Design-Time Component Name Limited to 63 characters (via: Vin Colgin – Google+)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/05/05

I learned something new today (thanks Vin Colgin) the Delphi Design-Time Component Name is Limited to 63 characters.

Uwe Raabe found out that this an Object Inspector thing due to this constant in DesignIntf.pas:

const
  MaxIdentLength = 63;

It has been probably there since Delphi 1 and has been documented on-line since at least Delphi 2007.

I remember having had long (like 100+ character) identifiers in source code, but not in the Object Inspector.

Now I know you can’t (:

    “This is constant DesignIntf.MaxIdentLength”
