No, you cannot assign methods to normal procedure variables, only normal 
procedures. The reason is that methods always expect an extra parameter 
containing the self pointer of the object/class instance they are 
working on. If you do the above, then when windows calls you "wndproc" 
(which isn't really a wndproc, since you have to add an explicit type 
cast for the compiler to accept the statement), it won't pass any self 
pointer and as such the method will not work correctly.
