TFPList descendent which manages objects.




TFPObjectList is a TFPList based list which has as the default array property TObjects instead of pointers. By default it also manages the objects: when an object is deleted or removed from the list, it is automatically freed. This behaviour can be disabled when the list is created.

In difference with TObjectList, TFPObjectList offers no notification mechanism of list operations, allowing it to be faster than TObjectList. For the same reason, it is also not a descendent of TFPList (although it uses one internally).
