TFreedObject in FastMM4/FastMM4.pas at master · pleriche/FastMM4 · GitHub

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/01/08

Reminder to Self:

  {The class used to catch attempts to execute a virtual method of a freed
  TFreedObject = class
    procedure GetVirtualMethodIndex;
    procedure VirtualMethodError;
{$ifdef CatchUseOfFreedInterfaces}
    procedure InterfaceError;

If you encounter the class TFreedObject when doing a cast, then you’re working on a freed object and have FastMM4 enabled to detect that.

Note that if you want to see the underlying FastMM data for any TObject allocation, use this watch (where Self is the current instance):

PFullDebugBlockHeader(PByte(Self) - SizeOf(TFullDebugBlockHeader))^

You can also put a ,r behind it to see the fields of this structure:
