Popup Menus

I want to use to the same popupmenu to populate several different TEdit.text properties depending on what I select from the Popup Menu.

I tries something like with (sender as Tedit).text := 'Hello World'.  I think I'm close, but I don't quite have it.

Thanks for your help.

The component that calls the popup menu is in the PopupComponent property. So your code needs to be something like this:

if PopupMenu1.PopupComponent is TEdit then
begin
  (PopupMenu1.PopupComponent as TEdit).Text := 'Whatever';
end;
