Non productive sample is not quite accurate, since the event assignment is
typically handled by RTTI during an .lfm loading. Though for dynamically
created forms the assignment code indeed should be there.

About productive code. Should it look like this (note "Test" name is
removed from procedure declaration)?

procedure TApp.Create(Sender: TObject);
  MyButton.SetOnClick(procedure; begin
      Alert('Button clicked');
