My more complex proposition from point 2. Full backward compatible... Fair
enough, ready for Management Operators + fix for Initialize/FinalizeArray:

=== code begin ===
  PPRecInitTable = ^PRecInitTable;
  PRecInitTable = TRecInitTable;
  TRecInitTable = packed record
    Size: Longint;
    Terminator: Pointer;
    ManagedFieldCount: Longint;
    { ManagedFields: array[0..ManagedFieldCount - 1] of TManagedField; }

  TRecordTypeField = packed record
    Field: TManagedField; // :\ a little redundant info (we have this info
also in TotalFields, but we need to deal with $RTTI EXPLICIT)
    Flags: Byte; // visibility
    Name: ShortString;

  TTypeData =
        { tkRecord }
        property ManagedFldCount: Integer read GetManagedFldCount;
 deprecated 'Use TotalFieldCount'; // return TotalFieldCount
     tkRecord: (
        RecSize: Integer;
        RecInitTable: PPRecInitTable; // here is accessible
ManagedFieldCount and ManagedFields
        TotalFieldCount: Integer;
       {TotalFields: array[0..TotalFieldCount - 1] of TManagedField;
        RecFldCnt: Integer; // for $RTTI EXPLICIT ... FIELDS
        RecFields: array[0..RecFldCnt - 1] of TRecordTypeField});
=== code end ===

So merge for PART 2 of Management Operators might be not bad idea:


Now I feel that all of my ideas to solve this are expressed.

Best regards,
