Thanks, however, I am just defining getter. So, to make this work, I need
to define things like:

  MyProp = string[5];

then use it in class, right? I thought it is should be compatible...

BTW, recently there are many discussions about language features, now I
would like to ask one question, why the following is not supported in

procedure SomeThing(AParam: array[0..10] of Integer);


procedure SomeThing(Aparam: string[10]);

But you have to define a custom type first?
