Hi Don,

I do not have a CBuilder demo complete like the example program. Usually the port from C++ to Object Pascal is quite straight forward, replacing TObject.Create with new TObject() from Free with Delete. Remember all VCL objects must be created explicitely in CBuiler.

I think the problem you are having is that your type TpScanInfo is not pointer type, but an "alias" for the structure. The convention I use is that a structure type has the format TStructure, and the typedef for a pointer to the structure is TpStructure. I know there are various ways to identify the name of a struct in C (whether you use straight C or C++ extensions), but I don't recall the exact differences.

The cast you have is trying to cast from an integer (CallBackData) to a user defined structure, to the compiler complains. This will probably work,

pScanInfo = TpScanInfo*(CallBackData);

The idea is that a pointer is 4 bytes just like an integer.

Note that a proper value (ie, the address of a TScanInfo structure) must be passed to TScanner->Acquire(), to use this call back data mechanism.

You can avoid the call back data mechanism, by simply holding the information globally on the form.

Best regards,
