[fpc-devel] Generic List in Advanded record does not compile with -MobjFPC, works with -MDelphi (perhaps related to Generics.Collections that I am using)

As I expected. Try this:

=== code begin ===

TSpecialFunctionRegister = record
public type
   TSpecialFunctionBitsList = specialize TList<TSpecialFunctionBits>
   // alternatively you could declare that outside of the record as well 
if you need it more often
   name: String;
   device: String;
   address: LongWord;
   bits: TSpecialFunctionBitsList;
   constructor Create(theName: String; theAddress: LongWord);

=== code end ===
